RACE PREVIEW

AAA 400 Drive for Autism

DOVER INT SPEEDWAY

June 4th, 1PM ET on FS1 TV

1 Mile, 24 Degrees of Banking

Race #13 of the year takes us to the “concrete jungle” Dover Int Speedway, AKA the Monster Mile. I love this track! The banking is high and the site lines are amazing. Just about wherever you sit you have a great view of the track. In the last ten years one team has dominated here, Hendrick Motorsports. They have eight wins, seven by Jimmie Johnson alone. The second highest number of wins in the last 20 races is Roush Fenway Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing each with three, the most recent from Matt Kenseth in this race last year driving for JGR. Will Hendrick Motorsports maintain their domination? Or will another team take a victory? We’ll find out Sunday.

Tuesday look for our Top 10 teams and Thursday look for our Top 30 driver rankings for Dover.

TOP FIVE DRIVERS

COCA-COLA 600:Charlotte Top 5 Drivers to Watch

My #5 pick has never won here, #42 Kyle Larson. But even with no wins, Kyle managed a fifth place finish in the October race last year.  He is red hot right now. He is #1 in points and #1 hottest over the last six races. Don’t look for him to cool down in the Charlotte night.

My #4 driver is the winning-est driver here, #48 Jimmie Johnson. Jimmie has 31 starts here, eight wins including the last race run here in October, and 15 Top 5’s. (48% percent).  He is #5 ranked on tracks like this. He finished 3rd here last year, in fact in his last six starts he had two wins!

My #3 driver is the defending champion of this race, #78 Martin Truex Jr. Martin has 23 starts, that win, and three Top 5’s. He is rated #3 on tracks like this, he sits #2 in points and is third hottest over the last six weeks.

The #2 pick has horrible stats here, #2 Brad Keselowski. He has 15 starts with a win in the fall of 2013 and just three Top 5 finishes. But, Brad is #2 hottest over the last six weeks and #2 ranked for me on tracks like this. He finished 5th here last year.  

My #1 pick is a three-time former-winner here and the polesitter, #4 Kevin Harvick. Yes, he has three wins, but in 32 career starts he only has seven Top 5’s…seven. He is ranked #1 for me on tracks like this and most importantly two of his wins came in the 600 mile May race. His last six races have three second place finishes and a win. In is on a great streak here of late, he is on the pole, look for that to continue. He has not won a race yet this year and that could all change next Sunday night in the Queen city.  

 

 

 

Monday look for our preview of the AAA 400 from Dover.
