My #5 driver is a three-time former-winner here, #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. has 33 starts, three wins and ten Top 5’s. Even though his last win was in the spring of 2006 Jr. is my #2 ranked short track racer. He is off to an uneven start this year and is looking for another big finish and I think he has an excellent shot of getting that here. Last September he finished 5th here.

The #4 driver has not exactly dominated here, #19 Carl Edwards. Carl did get a win here in September of 2013, but hasn’t been great in Richmond – he only has four Top 5’s in 23 starts. But his team Joe Gibbs Racing has dominated Richmond. Gibbs’ has won seven of the last 14 races here. Coming off of his win at Bristol Carl is #2 hottest.

My #3 driver to watch is the winning-est current driver in the capitol of the Commonwealth, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has 21 starts, four wins, and 14 Top 5 finishes! He finished 2nd here in September and is 5th hottest over the last six weeks.

My #2 driver to watch is #1 hottest over the last six races, #4 Kevin Harvick. Kevin has 30 starts, three wins, and nine Top 5’s. Kevin last won here in this race in 2013. He has seven straight Top 15’s here, helping him to #2 in average finish.

The #1 driver to watch is my #1 rated short track driver, but has yet to win a race this season, #22 Joey Logano. Joey comes in here where he has a single win in 14 starts and five Top 5’s. His last four races here have all been 6th place or better.



Monday we’ll preview the Geico 500 from Talladega.
