Stock up

Kevin Harvick. He’s joined Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth as the only drivers with multiple Chase wins this year. And his four wins tie him with Kyle Busch for third-most this year.

Stock down

Carl Edwards. It was a Chase year for Edwards, but that’s about the best that can be said about it. He sits last in the standings, 134 points behind the leader. He started the Chase in fifth, nine points off the lead.

Notable

Johnson numbers: How good has Jimmie Johnson been in the Chase this year? Here are the numbers: 4.7 average finish, 5.0 average running position, 29 percent of all laps led, 127.7 driver rating.

Done before: Kenseth needs to outpoint Johnson by 29 points. He’s done that twice this year, at Bristol in August and at Richmond in September. At Homestead-Miami, it happened in 2005 and 2011.

Done before II: Harvick needs to outpoint Johnson by 35 points. He has done that seven times, including once this year, in August at Michigan.

Quotable

“It's no layup at all. Everybody is so eager to predict the champion, but you've got to play the game. You've got to run the race, and stuff happens.” Jimmie Johnson
