TOP FIVE DRIVERS

 

1000Bulbs.com 500:TALLADEGA

The #5 driver to watch is a former winner here, #4 Kevin Harvick. Kevin has been freaky fast just about everywhere this year, he is the #1 points-getter so far this year. He is #5 hottest over the last six weeks. He has 35 starts, one win and seven Top 5’s.

My #4 driver to watch is another former winner here, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle struggled a bit in Dover. Here he is just hoping not to get caught up in a big wreck that can happen here and get taken out. He always runs fast here and his crew keeps him competitive.  Kyle has 26 starts, one win and six Top 5’s. His one win came in the early race in 2008, over ten years ago. Kyle will get a Top 5…if he stays out of trouble.

My #3 driver to watch is the most recent winner and currently the #1 ranked plate track driver, #22 Joey Logano. Joey won here in April, that was his third win in just 19 starts. He finished 4th in this race last year one of his six total Top 5’s. Besides being #1 rated on plate tracks he is #2 hottest over the last six races.

My #2 driver to watch has never won here, #41 Kurt Busch.  Kurt has 35 starts and eight Top 5’s. He is my #6 ranked plate track driver and he finished 2nd in this race in April. Kurt had a Top 5 finish at Dover helping him to #3 hottest over the last six races.

My #1 pick is the winning-est current driver here, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad has an impressive five wins in just 19 starts, along with seven Top 5’s. He could be nowhere better than here where his last win was this race last year making him the defending champion of this race. He also sits #1 hottest over the last six weeks. Keep this in mind; three of his wins came in the last eight races.
