TOP FIVE DRIVERS TO WATCH

 

TOYOTA OWNERS 400 from RICHMOND

The #5 driver has not exactly dominated here, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad did get a win here in September of 2014, but hasn’t been great in Richmond – he only has four Top 5’s in 17 starts. Brad has not won yet this year but quietly sits 5th in points and is #4 hottest over the last six weeks. He did finish second here in this race last year.

My #4 driver is the hometown hero here, #11 Denny Hamlin. Denny grew up not from here.  He is also one of the current winning-est drivers here with three career wins. He has 23 starts those wins and ten Top 5’s, speaking of Top 5’s, his last three starts were all Top 5’s including his latest win in the September race in 2016. Denny is also my #4 ranked short track driver.

My #3 driver to watch is another three time winner here, #4 Kevin Harvick. Kevin has 34 starts, three wins, and 12 Top 5’s. Kevin last won here in this race in 2013. That is ten races ago, in that time Kevin finished in the Top 5 six times and every one of those ten races was Top 15 or better.

My #2 driver to watch is the hottest driver on the circuit, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has 18 starts, two wins, and seven Top 5 finishes. 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.

The #1 driver to watch is my #3 rated short track driver, but has yet to win a race this season, #22 Joey Logano. Joey comes as the defending champion of this race.  Joey has two wins in 18 starts and seven Top 5’s. His last eight races here have all been Top 10’s and six were Top 5’s including both of his wins.

 

 

Monday we’ll preview the Geico 500 from Talladega.
