TOP FIVE DRIVERS

CHICAGOLAND SPEEDWAY: OVERTON’S 400

My #5 pick is #1 in points, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle comes into the Second City where he has 13 starts, a win and four Top 5’s. Kyle won in 2008 and a lot has changed. Not only is he #1 in points currently he is #2 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #4 driver has only raced here four times, #42 Kyle Larson. Yes he has just four starts, two of them were Top 5’s and his worst finish was 18th. One of his Top 5’s a 5th place finish last year in the Playoffs.

The #3 driver is a two time former winner here, #4 Kevin Harvick.  Kevin has 17 starts at Chicagoland and nine Top 5’s. It is important to note that last year his first time in a Ford he finished 3rd. Currently Kevin is #1 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #2 pick has only two Top 5 finishes here, #78 Martin Truex Jr. Martin has only two Top 5’s in twelve starts, but those two Top 5’ were wins in 2016 &2017. 12 starts, two wins. He is #1 rated on tracks like this and sits 3rd hottest over the last six weeks.

The #1 driver to watch last won here four years ago, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad has two wins in just nine starts. His other win was in 2012. He seven straight Top 10 finishes and four of those were Top 5’s. He is #3 for me on these downforce tracks.    

 

Monday we’ll preview the Coke Zero Sugar 400 from Daytona.
