TOP FIVE DRIVERS

Top 5 Drivers to watch: POCANO

The #5 driver finished second here in June, #42 Kyle Larson. Kyle has nine starts here and just two Top 5’s. Kyle is #7 hottest over the last six weeks and ranked #7 on flat tracks. Kyle finished 2nd here in June and remember Kyle “The Highliner” Larson is not afraid to go places on the track where others fear to tread.  

My #4 pick is my #1 driver in average finish here, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad has nine Top 5’s in his 17 starts, 52%. Brad did win this race in 2011 and he had a fifth place finish last year and again in June. Actually all of his last six starts here were Top 5’s. Brad is #4 on flat tracks and #7 in points. On the other hand, he is #12 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #3 pick is the most recent winner here, #78 Martin Truex. Martin won here in the June race in 2015 and again this year.  He has 25 starts, two wins and just five Top 5’s. He is #2 hottest over the last six weeks and ranked #5 on flat tracks.

The #2 driver to watch is the defending champion of this race, #18 Kyle Busch. That win in July of last year was Kyle’s first win here. He has 27 starts and he has six Top 5’s. He is #3 hottest over the last six weeks and he finished 3rd here in June.  

My #1 driver to watch has never won here, #4 Kevin Harvick. But he is red hot coming off flat track NHMS. Kevin has 35 starts, no wins and 11 Top 5’s. He is my #1 rated flat track driver just came off a big flat track win and he IS #1 hottest over the last six weeks. Lastly he has four straight Top 5’s making him my pick for a big win here in Mountains.
