Joe Gibbs Racing, No. 18 Toyota
Outlook: "Rowdy" has been arguably the strongest driver in 2015, but his poor history at Kansas, Talladega and Homestead puts a strain on his title hopes.
Chase history: Seven previous appearances, best finish of fourth in 2013.
Best Chase track: New Hampshire, with two wins, eight top-five finishes and an average finish of 13.4 in 21 starts.
Worst Chase track: Kansas, with one top-five finish and an average finish of 21.4 in 15 starts.
