NOT – Kurt Busch

Some might not think that any driver who has won a race this season can be considered “not hot.” However, in the case of Busch the win seems to be more of an abnormality than anything else. Busch ran third and first in consecutive races this season, in his other six races his best finish was 21st. In four of those six races he finished outside of the top-30. Busch currently sits 26th in the points however he is almost 50 points ahead of the driver in 31st place. The odds of Busch finishing outside of the top-30 might not be high but those poor finishes aren’t helping any.
