TOP FIVE DRIVERS

BANK of AMERICA Roval 400:Charlotte

My #5 driver to watch is the most recent road course winner, #9 Chase Elliott. Chase won last month at Watkins Glen for the second consecutive time. Chase has been good at Sonoma but this year he finished 37th.  He finished 6th here last year. Chase is the #3 ranked road course driver and is #7 hottest over the last six weeks. 

My #4 driver is the defending champion of this race, #12 Ryan Blaney. Ryan got his first and only road course win last year here when Martin Truex and Jimmie Johnson made contact just before the checkered flag. He went from 3rd to victory lane very quickly. He is our #7 road course driver and has finished Top 5 so far in both road course races this year.

My #3 driver is the #1 hottest driver over the last six weeks, #4 Kevin Harvick. Kevin is our #5 ranked road course driver. He has had five straight Top 10’s on road courses including 9th in this race last year. But his last Top 5 was Sonoma in 2018.  

The #2 pick is my #2 ranked road course driver, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle is also the second winning-est current driver on road courses. Kyle sits #5 hottest and will be looking for a win but just ahead of him we will see…

My #1 driver to watch came very close to winning here last year, #19 Martin Truex Jr. Martin won at Sonoma Raceway in June. On road courses Martin has been very good he is our #1 ranked road course driver and the #1 winning-est current driver. Hottest over the last six weeks plus most road wins equals the man to beat in the Queen City. 

Monday we preview the Drydene 400 from Dover.
