What to watch for:
Back-to-back on the brain: Jimmie Johnson silenced critics when he ended his winless streak last week in the Coca-Cola 600. So far, Johnson has led a significant amount of the laps of the FedEx 400 and has consistently held a top-five position. Johnson has already earned eight wins at the Monster Mile in his 24 starts. Will 'Six-Time' win back-to-back, or will he let the opportunity slip?

Rookie Watch: Currently 13th in the Sprint Cup Series standings, Kyle Larson has given the other rookies a run for their money this season. Larson qualified fifth in the FedEx 400, but started at the rear of the field due to an engine change. He gained position and at Lap 155 he was running 14th. As for Austin Dillon -- currently 15th in the Cup standings -- he started the race in 23rd, but by Lap 155 he hadn't managed to follow Larson's lead and held the 21st position. As of now, Dillon is 18 points behind Larson in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings.

Winless in the top 10: Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne are among the drivers yet to score a win in 2014, which has become crucial in the new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format. For Kenseth in particular, that has resulted in loads of questions from the media. Jimmie Johnson got off the hook last week at Charlotte when he scored his first win of the season in the Coca-Cola 600. Will Dover add another new winner to the Chase grid?
