1. Kyle Larson ($11,400) — Will he ever win at Darlington? For the last decade, Larson has been one of Darlinton’s best drivers, but he never won. Last fall he finished just behind Hamlin after attempting to “play on video” in the final at-bat. In the spring, he wrecked his car after he spun while trying to get past second place.

2. Ross Chastain ($10,000) — Like Kyle Larson, Chastain was severely penalized for being aggressive. Chastain tried to pass Denny Hamlin for the lead on the opening restart of Stage 3. Chastain got loose and wrecked a race-winning car.

3. Denny Hamlin ($11,100) — The reigning Southern 500 champion almost made it two in a row in the spring. His car came to life in Stage 3, but pit cycling and a late caution didn’t go his way, and he dropped out of the lead. In traffic on the penultimate restart, Hamlin got stuck in the big one.

4. Joey Logano ($9,800) — Did Logano have the better car in the spring? He may not have been the best, but was he a top 3 car? Did Logano win the dirty way? Yes, but DFS points count the same.

5. Kyle Busch ($10,200) — In the spring race, Busch was biding his time and patiently lapping inside the top 5 for most of the race. Like several other race-winning cars, it wasn’t on the cards for Busch at Darlington in the spring. Brad Keselowski crashed in front of Busch, and Busch crashed into Keselowski.

6. Martin Truex Jr ($9,500) — A lot of very good cars crashed in the first race at Darlington, and Truex was one of them. On lap 261 of 293, Truex lined up on the second row. He ended up three wide going into turn 1. His car broke loose and he fired the big one.

7. William Byron ($8,900) — The warnings played in Byron’s favor. On the final restart, Byron overtook Joey Logano and took the lead. Logano claimed that Byron pushed him against the wall. Byron said that Logano freaked out. Only Logano’s opinion matters because on the final lap, Logano retaliated and sent Byron into the wall. Logano won, Byron finished 13th.

8. Chase Elliott ($10,700) — He wasn’t a factor in the spring race, but he had to start from behind in a race where passing was limited. Even with the handicap, Elliott was in the top 10 by the end of the race.

9. Christopher Bell ($8,700) — Despite being a famous dirt racer, Bell does not consider himself a tire racer like the other dirt racers on the circuit. Darlington may not suit Bell completely, but it’s hard to fade any JGR car right now.

10. Kevin Harvick ($8,500) — Put the road course and the plate race aside, and Harvick has won the last two oval races. Harvick didn’t do too well in the first race at Darlington, but the No. 4 SHR Ford team was struggling with the Next Gen package on mile-plus tracks at that point in the season.

11. Tyler Reddick ($10,500) — He was in the optimal lineup and finished second in the spring race at Darlington. Reddick was lucky and unlucky in that race, but his bad luck wasn’t as costly as that of the other elite drivers.

12. Ty Dillon ($5,800) — The Petty-GMS cars were fast in the spring race, and Dillon had four straight top-20 finishes going into this race. Plus, Dillon is one of the few drivers who pulls double duty on Labor Day weekend.

13. Bubba Wallace ($7,300) — Darlington hasn’t been kind to Bubba in the past. The same can be said for many tracks, but Bubba has overcome the struggles of the past this season. It helps that he’s driving the fastest car in his race. It’s funny how that works.

14. Austin Dillon ($7,800) — Momentum is on his side and Darlington has been a surprisingly good track for Dillon. His average finish is 11th in the last 10 Darlington races with five top-10 finishes, three of the last four.

15. Ryan Blaney ($9,200) — Darlington has never been a good track for Blaney. His average finish in the Lady in Black is 18th with a top 10 finish. She gets a new lease on life after last week, so there’s no telling what she might do on the 500 South.
