The number 5 driver is a former winner here in ‘dega, #11 Denny Hamlin. Denny has 24 starts, one win and six Top 5’s. Denny is the #1 rated restrictor plate driver. He has had a tough start to the season but he has turned that around with a 3rd place in Richmond. He sits sixth in points.

My #4 driver is a two time winner here, #22 Joey Logano. Joey has 18 starts, the two wins and five Top 5’s. He comes in here second in points, and #3 hottest over the last six weeks. Most importantly he is my #4 rated plate track driver and very happy to be here where Team Penske have won four of the last five races.

My #3 driver is the #1 hottest driver at the moment, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle is the #1 point getter over the last six weeks and he just won three straight races now he is rolling into a track where swagger is everything. Kyle has 25 starts, a win and  six Top 5’s. He finished 3rd here last year.

My #2 driver to watch has never won here, #41 Kurt Busch. Kurt has 34 starts and seven Top 5’s. He is 5th hottest over the last six races. He has is also my #2 rated plate track driver. Stewart Haas Racing right now is my #1 rated team pound for pound round for round they have the strongest most consistent driver line up. Of the four I like Kurt but watch out for all four drivers.

My #1 pick got his very first win here, #2 Brad Keselowski. In 18 starts Brad has won here five times, his first win in spring 2009, spring 2012, fall 2014, spring 2016 and his last win in the Playoffs last year. He is 5th in points and 6th hottest over the last six weeks. Look for the #2 car to come alive in Bama and go for the six pack!
