The #5 pick has the second highest average finish here, #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. has 26 starts, one win, and seven Top 5’s. Interestingly, Jr. has 24 straight Top 20 finishes and is #2 hottest over the last six weeks.


The #4 driver to watch has won five races here, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has 16 starts, five wins, and seven Top 5’s. Kyle won the very first race with the COT car or the Gen 5 car in 2007 – we’ll see how he does here in the debut of the Gen 6 car on a short track.


The number #3 driver to watch has won two of the last three races here, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad has those two wins in just six starts! Brad is #1 hottest over the last six races and at #2 in points, we know he is doing very well in the Gen 6 car.


My #2 driver is loving his brand new team, #20 Matt Kenseth. Matt has great stats here – 16 starts, two wins and ten Top 5’s. Matt is coming off a big win in Las Vegas and has quickly dispelled any doubts about his transition to Joe Gibbs racing.


My #1 driver is the #1 short track driver, #48 Jimmie Johnson. Jimmie has 20 starts with just one win and seven Top 5 finishes. The season may have just started, but Jimmie is #1 in points which means early-on he is the best driver in the new Gen 6 car.



Monday look for our preview of the Auto Club 400 from the Auto Club Speedway of Southern California.
