Drivers to Watch

Kyle Busch Is in the midst of a stellar first season with Joe Gibbs Racing, winning eight races and posting 13 top fives through 22 races; lead increased to 242 points atop the standings after winning at Watkins Glen; win at the Glen gave him a sweep of the road courses following victory at Sonoma in June; prior to win at the Glen had "slumped" with a 15th at the Brickyard and 36th at Pocono; also ran dead last at the first Pocono race; finished 13th at first Michigan race; ran 17th at Bristol after power steering failed and transmission issues relegated him to 38th at Martinsville; won at Atlanta, Talladega, Darlington, Dover and the second Daytona race; runner-up finish at Richmond was marred by a late-race incident with Dale Earnhardt Jr.; had the dominant car and led the most laps at the Daytona 500; is building off a sensational run at Hendrick Motorsports in his move to JGR and Toyota; finished fifth in the final 2007 standings after qualifying for the Chase for the second consecutive season; had 20 top-10 finishes last season, including 11 top fives; lone win came during the first Bristol race - the inaugural Car of Tomorrow event; ran 13th in this race last season.
