TOP FIVE DRIVERS

TOP 5 DRIVERS TO WATCH: SONOMA RACEWAY

The #5 driver, is my #1 road course driver, #15 Clint Bowyer. Clint is not usually thought of as a top road course driver, but his history racing on dirt tracks has helped him to be successful here. He won here three years ago  and in his nine starts, has that one win, as well as five Top 5’s.

My #4 driver is the hottest driver over the last six weeks, #78 Martin Truex. Martin won here two years ago helping to make him my #5 ranked road course driver. Martin is not only #1 hottest but sits #2 in points. He is having a good solid season and should see that continue here.

The #3 driver to watch is another former winner – a five-time former winner, #24 Jeff Gordon. Jeff has five wins here with the last coming in 2006.  He has 22 starts, those 5 wins, and 14 Top 5 finishes. Jeff’s last nine races here were all Top 10’s and six of those were Top 5’s. Jeff also has the #1 best average finish.

My #2 pick won here five years ago, #48 Jimmie Johnson. Jimmie has 13 starts here, one win, and four Top 5’s, which is why Jimmie has the #2 average finish. Jimmie is #4 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #1 driver to watch has really seen his season turn around, #41 Kurt Busch. He sat out the first three races of the year and now he sits #4 in points and looks like he’ll make the “Chase for the Cup”. He has 14 starts with a 2011 win and six Top 5 finishes.

Monday look for our preview of the Coke Zero 400 from Daytona Int. Speedway.
