1.Joey Logano2↑51stLogano wins his second race of 2014 and officially punches his ticket into the chase. He is going to be a contender come chase time.
2.Jeff Gordon0↓12ndGordon does everything but win races. He has run second in two of the last three races and remains the points leader.
3.Kyle Busch1↑23rdKyle restarted around 16th position with eight laps to go and finished third. If there were five more laps in the race he might have won it.
4.Matt Kenseth0↓25thKenseth was in a tough spot at the end of the race and he couldn't find a way to hang onto the lead. Much like Gordon he has done everything but win in 2014.
5.Dale Earnhardt Jr.1↑37thIt was another strong run for Earnhardt Jr. and the No. 88 team. He might be an early favorite heading into Talladega.
6.Kevin Harvick2↓411thHappy Harvick can't win em all but he had a solid run in Richmond.
7.Brad Keselowski1↑24thBrad seems to have confused good racing with "being pinched into the wall."
8.Kyle Larson0↓416thAfter getting spun on the opening lap, the rookie was never really able to recover Saturday night.
9.Carl Edwards1↑39thEdwards already has a win and is now beginning to find consistency. Keep an eye on him especially with this being a contract year.
10.
Ryan Newman0↑58thRyan was flying Saturday night. Newman has looked good the last couple of weeks.
11.Tony Stewart0↓425thStewart had a down night in Richmond. He just never really got it going.
12.Jimmie Johnson0↓232ndJohnson is dangerously close to falling off of this list. Tire issues ruined his night in Richmond.
13.Brian Vickers0N/A12thVickers has ran well this season. He almost got himself another top-10 in this race.
14.AJ Allmendinger0N/A6thAllmendinger turned a few heads Saturday night with his top-10 performance.
15.Martin Truex Jr.0N/A10th2014 has been disappointing for Truex Jr. Maybe this top-10 will be the start of him turning it around.
