1 Kevin Harvick Kevin Harvick 908
Harvick never led a lap at Bristol, but overcame two pit road speeding penalties and rallied back to finish second; his tenth second place finish since his last win in March. He didn’t win, but showed he is still the one to beat for the title.
2 Joey Logano Joey Logano 865
Logano was the dominant force in the second half of the last race, leading the final 63 laps to score his second Bristol night race win in the last two years and his second race of the last three. Logano may be hitting his stride at just the right time.
3 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 784
Earnhardt had to pit under green for a loose wheel and was lapped several times. Despite this, he used a combination of pit strategy and hard driving to finish ninth.
4 Brad Keselowski Brad Keselowski 754
