What’s Hot/What’s Not

HOT

Carl Edwards: Welcome the newest entry to the 2015 Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Kyle Busch: If he is suffering any ill effects from his early-season injuries, it certainly wasn’t evident at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Greg Biffle: Roush Fenway Racing still has a long way to go but a second-place finish in the 600 certainly was a welcome change.

Martin Truex Jr.: Speed wins races. He’s just still waiting on his.

Austin Dillon: He has won two of the nine Xfinity Series races he has entered this season.

Denny Hamlin: Good run at Charlotte with All-Star race victory, second in Xfinity race and eighth in the 600.

NOT

Jimmie Johnson: It was a very un-Jimmie Johnson-like Charlotte race weeks.

Ryan Blaney: Likely seen all the blown engines he cares to in his career.

Jamie Dick: It has been a rough return to racing since receiving treatment for diabetes.
