Kurt Busch added his name to the winner's column last week after an overtime battle with brother Kyle. Joey Logano looked poised to cruise to victory when a late caution set up a restart battle between he and Kyle Busch that rapidly became a four-way fight with Erik Jones also getting into the mix. The Busch brothers separated themselves on the final lap and banged wheels as they drove hard to be the first across the finish line. The win for Kurt cements his playoff hopes and reduces the number of available spots in the championship elimination rounds for non-winners by one. This week's race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is just one of seven regular-season races remaining for drivers to work their way into that battle. The race is run just once a season now and was won by Kevin Harvick last season. With Harvick struggling again last week in Kentucky it will be critical for fantasy players to assess his potential accurately this week. Toyota drivers have won five of the last seven races at the track with Joe Gibbs Racing having somewhat of a stranglehold on Victory Lane.
