The #5 driver has not exactly dominated here, #9 Chase Elliot. Chase has seven starts here and two top 5’s. He notched both of those top 5’s here last year, a second place finish in this race last year and a fifth place finish in the fall. Chase is my #6 ranked short track driver and is #6 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #4 driver to watch is a three time winner here, #4 Kevin Harvick. Kevin has 36 starts, three wins, and 14 Top 5’s. Kevin last won here in this race in 2013. That is 12 races ago, in that time Kevin finished in the Top 5 eight times and every one of those 12 races was Top 15 or better. Kevin is #4 ranked on short tracks and fourth hottest over the last six weeks.

The #3 driver to watch won this race two years ago, #22 Joey Logano. Joey is one of only four drivers that have won a race this year. Here Joey has two wins in 20 starts and eight Top 5’s. His last ten races here have all been Top 15’s and six were Top 5’s including both of his wins. Joey is my #3 ranked short track driver and is #2 hottest over the last six races.

My #2 driver to watch is the hottest driver on the circuit and the winning-est current driver here, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has 27 starts, six wins, and 17 Top 5 finishes (63%). He is #1 hottest over the last six weeks and he also sits #1 in points. He just won in Bristol so we know he is a pretty good short track driver….And he won both races here last year.

My #1 driver is the hometown hero here, #11 Denny Hamlin. Denny grew up not from here. He is also one of the current top three winning-est drivers here with three career wins. He has 25 start, those wins and 11 Top 5’s, speaking of Top 5’s, four of his last five starts were Top 5’s including his latest win in the September race in 2016. Denny is also my #1 ranked short track driver.

Monday we’ll preview the Geico 500 from Talladega.
