Kyle Busch: People talk about competitive fire, but nobody rebounds from a narrow loss like Busch, who did so again at Pocono after just coming up short in Charlotte.
Chase Elliott: He's carrying the banner for both Chevy and Hendrick Motorsports right now, and five straight Top 5s means he's due another win in short order.
Jimmie Johnson: Hendrick as a whole continues to improve, but somehow Johnson isn't seeing the constant improvement his teammates are. He's now just outside the playoff bubble after coming in 19th at Pocono.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: His Top 5 at Charlotte could've been a springboard, but instead he ended up outside the Top 30 at Pocono -- not how you want to capitalize on your only momentum thus far in 2019.
