Whether NASCAR fans like it or not, Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch are now the cream of the crop when it comes to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Not only is that evident by their respective number on wins in just six races this season, but also by their insane amount of consistency.
In fact, between the three drivers, they already hold five wins, 12
Of course, it is still relatively early in the season to say who exactly will nab the title at the end of the year, but the first six races have offered at least a road map to who it might be. With that being said, Keselowski, Hamlin and Busch seem right at the front of the conversation.
Think about it. Kyle Busch has two wins, five top fives and six top 10s in the first six races of the season, which has firmly established him as the points leader. Then there’s Brad Keselowski, who has two wins of his own this season and an average finish of 6.3.
Keselowski also has four top-fives and four top 10s which pretty much makes him the most consistent driver in the field so far next to Kyle Busch. Finally, there’s Denny Hamlin, a man that hasn’t been too competitive since his win at Daytona but has stuck around in the point standings thanks to a string of top 10 finishes.
If nothing else, these three drivers have set the tone for the rest of season and while other contenders may eventually show themselves , its obvious who are the men to beat. Its also obvious that they have the best handle on the new aero package, which could be very valuable as time goes on.
In the end, these three drivers share five wins among them, two of them winning twice this season and the kind of consistent finishes that look more like stats from a video game than real life. Its seriously just that unreal, but for one reason or another, these three men are just unbeatable right now.
