NASCAR Sprint Cup: Buying or Selling the Title Hopes of the Top 18 Drivers

Three races remain before the championship field is set. Which drivers' title hopes should you be buying and which should you be selling?

Two obvious buys at the moment are Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, each of whom is on a tremendous hot streak that should carry over into the Chase. Some top drivers have been faltering lately, raising questions about their ability to make a title run. Where does your favorite driver stand?

Before I begin, I want to explain what I mean by my ratings. A buy means a driver's title hopes are on the rise; a sell means his hopes are trending down; and a hold means he's not moving strongly in either direction.

That is, if I rate a driver as a buy, that doesn't necessarily mean I think he's a strong threat to win the championship; it simply means I think his championship prospects are on the rise. He may be a long shot today, but less of one than he was recently.

Or just because I rate a driver as a sell doesn't mean I think he doesn't have a chance at the title; I just think he's not in as good of shape as he appeared to be a short while ago.
