He is currently eighth in the 2013 NNS point standings.

Six of Kyle Busch’s last seven attempts on flat tracks ended in top-10 finishes. That dates back to last fall’s Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway when he finished fifth. All but one of his top-10s was in the top five.

Busch also has recent momentum on his side with five straight top-12 results and last week’s Brickyard 400 victory. He is well worth any salary cap cost.

Iowa Speedway marks Josh Berry's (No. 88 SunEnergy1 Chevrolet Camaro) fourth career NASCAR XFINITY Series start, and his first of 2016.

Last season, Berry made one NXS start for JRM, qualifying fifth and finishing seventh at Richmond International Raceway. Berry owns seven wins this season competing in the No. 88 JR Motorsports Late Model.-JRM

Daniel Hemric (No. 19 Blue Gate Bank Ford F-150) claimed a ninth-place finish in one previous NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Pocono Raceway (2015).

Has nine top 10s and four top fives in 11 races this season - average finish is 8.5. Hemric remains third in the series championship standings, just two points out of second place and 11 points behind the leader. He scored an eighth-place finish July 20 at Eldora (Rossburg, Ohio) Speedway, earning his second top-10 finish in two starts at the dirt oval.-Brad Keselowski Racing

Justin Allgaier (No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet Camaro) has one top-five and six top-10 finishes in nine XFINITY Series starts at Iowa Speedway, most recently placing seventh in the June NXS event at the .875-mile oval.

The 30-year-old’s best Iowa NXS effort came in 2012, when he led 101 laps on his way to a second-place finish. Allgaier’s fifth-place finish last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway propelled him to fourth in the NXS point standings. Last weekend also marked the Illinois native’s seventh top five of 2016, his career-best effort through 18 NXS races in a single season.-JR Motorsports

AJ Allmendinger is a calculated risk at Pocono Raceway. He entered last year’s edition of this race with four 30-something results in the five Pocono races that preceded it, but he used his skills honed on road courses and finished seventh. He was not as great a value this spring, but finished 16th—four spots ahead of the midline.

Allmendinger desperately needs a strong run to calm the frustration he feels after several weeks of bad luck and mistakes. If he finishes in the top 20 again this week, he will have added confidence at Watkins Glen.

Regan Smith missed three years at Pocono Raceway, but he returned to the track this spring and finished just outside of the midline mark in 22nd.

Smith is one of the cheaper options most weeks in salary cap games, so he was a good value with the points he earned through a 22nd-place finish. He qualified 35th and added seven place-differential points to his total.

Jeb Burton will be behind the wheel of the No. 32 at Pocono Raceway. He also ran for this team in the June Axalta We Paint Winners 400 and finished 29th after starting 39th, which added 10 place-differential points to his total.

If a team is going to utilize several drivers in their car, this is a good plan because it allows the racer and team to develop course-specific chemistry. One of the biggest obstacles faced by part time driver is seat time and maximizing it on a given course ameliorates that.

Matt Kenseth has finished seventh or better in all but one of this year’s flat track races. Last year, he recorded top-10s in all but two events on this course type.

Included in those streaks are top-10s in all three Pocono Raceway events. He was sixth last spring and in this year’s Axalta We Paint Winners 400, but the highlight was a fuel-mileage aided victory in the Windows 10 400, which was his first in Pocono.
Jul 28 - 1:33 PM

Ryan Newman finished 39th and 23rd in last year’s pair of Pocono Raceway events. That came on the heels of six straight seasons in which he swept the top 15 at least and two years of consecutive top-10s. He rebounded this spring and finished 12th in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400.

That should have righted his ship and Newman should easily be expected to finish in the top 15 again this week. With a moderate price cap in most games and some momentum with which he has recorded several top-15 points’ days since, he should be a great value.
Jul 28 - 1:32 PM

Aric Almirola finished 18th in this race last year and followed that up with a 20th this spring in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400, which gives him a two-race streak of Pocono Raceway top-20s.

Three of Almirola’s last four races this season have also ended in the top 20 with a best of 15th on the restrictor-plate Daytona International Speedway. Last week on the other 2.5-mile flat track of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, he finished 25th so fantasy owners can expect him to hover around the 20th-place this week.
Jul 28 - 1:31 PM

Landon Cassill has finished better than he started in 15 of the last 17 races this season. He also finished exactly where he started once.

Notably the only time in that span of events that he finished worse than he started was at Pocono Raceway this June. Cassill qualified 31st, but sustained crash damage to finish 36th. He should be a lock to earn positive place-differential points in games that offer them.
