1.Jeff Gordon - A blast from the past, yes it's been four long years since Gordon won multiple races in a season.
2.Brad Keselowski - No joke BK is in the top 10 yet again ! I said it once and will say it again! Darkhorse to win it all in the chase.
3.A.J. Allmendinger - Even if dinger misses the chase which seems likely give the guy credit. He is making strides with the 43 team look for them to be strong in 2012.
4.Jimmie Johnson - We have come to the point in the season when he turns up the heat. Looks to be charging towards a 6th title.
5.J.J. Yeley - Give J.J. all the credit in the world. He runs really well when driving the 38 car. Front Row should leave him in this car full time, heck had it continued to rain he would have won this race.
1.Clint Bowyer - Another lackluster effort = missing out on the chase. His future remains in limbo.
2.Kasey Kahne - No doubt counting down the days until the 2012 Daytona 500.
3.Kyle Busch - Fading a little as the chase nears. Rowdy cant let this one slip away like he has in year's past.
4.Joey Logano - Joey has yet to figure out Atlanta in a cup car.
5.Travis Kvapil - After watching the run J.J had in Travis's primary ride. If I were Bob Jenkins keeping J.J. in the 38 could actaully save one career, and mercifully end another. Starting & parking looks real good on Travis.
