As a consolation Busch remains on top of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup standings. Right behind Busch is Joey Logano. It was Logano that took the checkers last week at Talladega. Kevin Harvick remains a hot betting on NASCAR pick. Harvick won three races in a row earlier in the season. He was fourth last week at Talladega. Busch and Harvick have captured the headlines all season. But Dover has not been a great track for either driver.
