Sizzlers – This list consist of drivers who had a great week or are riding a powerful wave of momentum.
- Denny Hamlin- Redemption times two! Denny’s huge Daytona victory has him thinking about raising the Harley J Earl trophy next Sunday afternoon. Think big Denny think big!
- Kevin Harvick- Harvick left the Sprint Unlimited standing tall. Above all he carried the SHR banner graciously. Is this a sign of things to come in the regular season?
3 Joey Logano- Joey’s performance in the Sprint Unlimited proves he continues to enhance his race management skills. Watch out for JoLo this season he could sneak up on the competition, and set the NASCAR world on fire.
4 Jamie McMurray- Jamie Mac’s persistence turned what could have been a disaster of a race into a useful tune up for next Sunday’s 500.
5 Brad Keselowski- Judging by his demeanor and how he managed his overall performance in the Sprint Unlimited, you get the feeling Brad Keselowski is due for an uprising in 2014.
Fizzlers – Drivers listed below are falling fast, or are for lack of a better term ice-cold as of late.
1 Terry Labonte- Yes, folks we’ve hit an all-time low in NASCAR. I can’t believe a former two-time champion would resort to starting and parking after completing one lap of an exhibition race. Utterly disappointing wouldn’t you say?
2 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. – Poor Ricky Stenhouse Jr. thought he rammed into a wall. When he looked up he got an eyeful of green and orange. Wait doesn’t his lady-love drive a green and orange car? You get the picture.
3 Jimmie Johnson- The champ’s last three Sprint Unlimited races have been complete duds.
4 Carl Edwards- Simply it’s a matter of checkers or wreckers, come on cuz is that all you can say about a nine car pileup that spoiled your night Pollyanna.
5 Kurt Busch- He was a favorite to win this race except for the fact hardly anybody noticed he was even in the race.
