Drivers to Watch

Kevin Harvick Finished a solid seventh at Martinsville for his fifth straight top-10; chipped 27 points off Matt Kenseth's lead to 240 points behind entering Sunday's race; has made a dramatic charge with his run of five top-10 finishes in a row, coupled with Kenseth's finishes during that span, allowing him to trim 223 points off the deficit during that stretch; maintains career-best second in points for the fifth consecutive race week; was outstanding in first two career starts at Atlanta with a pair of top-three finishes, including his emotionally charged first Winston Cup win in March 2001, but has not been able to manage a top-15 effort in his three starts since; had two DNFs at Atlanta last season (39th in March, 40th in October), but improved in his most recent appearance with a 19th-place effort in March.
Jamie McMurray Eighth-place finish last week made him the highest finishing rookie for the 18th time this year; posted five top-10s in last six races; scored five top-five and 12 top-10 finishes during this rookie season; comes to Atlanta 15th in NASCAR Winston Cup Series points.
