I know a lot have been watching every weekend’s race. For this upcoming Saturday, Chevy Rock & Roll 400 at Richmond (Va) International Raceway is in the line. Who among the races do you admire most? Who among them always get to the top? Well, form sportingnews.com, I have been aware of who are the top five pointers in the coming race. Here they are, with few details of their performance:

  1. Jeff Gordon – has four wins this season. His momentum is expected to start this Saturday night at Richmond. His fourth-place finish in May broke a string of finishes of 31, 40, 30 and 39.
  2. Tony Stewart – has four top 10s in his past five races at Richmond. It has been said that his angers trigger a better performance on the track.
  3. Denny Hamlin – from suburban Richmond. He has known loving race that he considers Richmond races his world. In his three Cup starts at RIR, he has a third, 15th and second.
  4. Carl Edwards – qualifies well (10.3) but doesn’t finish well (17.0). He qualified second and finished 12th in May.
  5. Matt Kenseth – led 10 of the first 12 races this season (253 laps) but he led only four of the past 13 (35 laps, 31 in one race). He finished 10th at RIR in May.

Now, let’s look over whom we should be watching in the same race:

  • Jimmie Johnson (6th) – won last week and won at Richmond in May. He has a season-high five wins.
  • Kyle Busch (8th) – has a driver rating of 115.2, second to Kevin Harvick’s 125.4. In May, Busch finished second to Johnson. He has five top fives in five career Cup races at Richmond.
  • Kurt Busch (11th) – finished fifth in May after starting 33rd.
  • Kevin Harvick (12th) – excelled in the past five races in Richmond. He got all top 10 finishes, including last September.
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr. (13th) – 128 points behind Harvick and 141 behind Kurt Busch.
