The 2012 Nationwide Series is almost a third over as the drivers head to North Carolina this weekend for the Charlotte 300. We’ll see the regulars such as Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Elliott Sadler, Danica Patrick, Sam Hornish Jr., and Austin Dillon, who return to the track with Sprint Cup veterans Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch joining them.
Stenhouse has been on fire lately as he has collected three wins this season, including last weekend’s win at Iowa, his third consecutive win there. Stenhouse currently leads Elliott Sadler by 28 points. Rookie Austin Dillon is third, just 43 points behind Stenhouse with Hornish Jr. and Cole Whitt rounding out the top five, 74 and 92 points back, respectively.
