NASCAR: Who’s Hot And Who’s Not Heading Into Richmond

7 of 7

NOT – Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr.

Bristol was a bump in the road for all three of these drivers and there is no reason to believe that all three won’t run well this weekend in Richmond. However, that bump in the road cost all three of them a shot at history.

Enter the eighth race of the season all three men had finished the previous seven races inside of the top-10. The record for the most top-10 finishes to start off a season is 11 and was set in 1990 by Morgan Shepherd.

Heading into Bristol it was safe to assume that one of them might get caught up in something and have their streak broken. However, all three of them were involved in one issue or another and lost their chance at history. Don’t be overly surprised if one of these three drivers finds their way to victory lane in Richmond this weekend.
