Drivers to Watch

Kyle Busch Chase Points: 5,146 (5th) Championship hopes took a huge hit at New Hampshire as a broken sway bar relegated him to a 34th-place finished; dropped to eighth in the standings, 74 points behind the leader; first season at Joe Gibbs Racing has seen him win eight races and post 15 top fives and 17 top 10s; had held on to the top spot for 17 consecutive weeks; win at Watkins 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; ran 17th at the first Bristol race after power steering failed and transmission issues relegated him to 38th at Martinsville; has wins 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 solid 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; ran fifth in this race last season.
