Greg Biffle has 10 Sprint Cup career starts at Watkins Glen, earning one top-five and three top-10 finishes.

Timothy Peters returns to Iowa Speedway after capturing back-to-back checkered flags in the July NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, becoming the only Truck Series driver to own multiple wins at the Newton, Iowa race track.

In seven starts at Iowa Speedway, Peters has collected two wins, two top-five and three top-10 finishes. He has an average starting position of 7.3 and average finish of 11.3.-Red Horse Racing

Ryan Preece (No. 16 East West Marine/Diversified Metals Ford) the 2013 NWMT champion has nine wins, 12 poles, 25 podiums, 43 top fives and 58 top 10s in 100 career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts.

Ranks ninth in points after five races with a best result of fourth last time out at Riverhead. Has seven top 10s, an average finish of 12th and a best result of third (four times) in 15 career New Hampshire Motor Speedway starts. Will also compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at NHMS this week. Finished 24th in that race last year.-NWMT

Ben Rhodes has repeatedly been asked if the opportunity to tie the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East record for consecutive wins this week is becoming a distraction.

Based on his track-record performance in capturing the pole for Friday’s Granite State 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, it’s clear the 17-year-old NASCAR Next driver isn’t suffering from the attention. "I just do my best and forget the rest," Rhodes said after posting a fast lap of 128.580 mph (29.622 second) around the 1.058-mile oval. A victory in Friday’s race would let Rhodes tie Ricky Craven’s 23-year-old record of five straight series wins.

Denny Hamlin is widely considered one of the top choices every time the Cup series rolls onto a short, flat track, but he has no top-15s in his last four starts on them.

Hamlin never fully returned from his injury last year with a pair of 21st-place finishes at New Hampshire in the summer and Richmond in the fall. He had a slight bump in the second New Hampshire race, but slipped to 28th at Phoenix in the penultimate event last year. In three starts in 2014, his best efforts were a pair of 19ths at Phoenix and Martinsville. This is a good week to take a wait-and-see approach to Hamlin.

Landon Cassill failed to qualify for the Profit 500k at Phoenix, but he rebounded nicely with mid-20s results in the next two short, flat track races at Martinsville and Richmond.

Cassill has scored 30-something results in his last seven unrestricted speedway races, which should put him under most fantasy players’ radar screens. That means if he can repeat his Virginia success in New Hampshire, he could catch fantasy opponents unaware. Treat him as one of this week’s top dark horse picks.

Greg Biffle has one of the most consistent records on short, flat tracks in past 12 months. Six of his last eight attempts on this course type ended in results of 12th to 18th.

With an average finish of 12.75 on this track type, Biffle might not make his way onto may fantasy rosters but there is some reason to be hopeful. His single top-five during this span came in last year’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire, so he should be watched in practice and qualification.

Joey Logano is the only driver who has swept the top five on the short, flat tracks of Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond this year.

Logano got off to a strong start with fourth-place finishes at Phoenix in the Profit 500k and Martinsville in the STP 500. He won the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond, so fantasy players will want to give him another start this week and expect a solid top-five finish.

In three starts on short, flat tracks, Alex Bowman has gotten progressively better with a 41st at Phoenix, a 36th at Martinsville, and a 28th at Richmond.

This is precisely how rookies should progress and it puts Bowman on the fantasy radar screen. If he finishes in the top 25 this week he could be fantasy relevant when the series returns to New Hampshire in September for the next races on this track type.
Jul 10 - 5:48 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. got off to a strong start on short, flat tracks this year with an 18th at Phoenix, but his latest two efforts at Martinsville and Richmond have both been outside the top 35.

Stenhouse will be difficult to handicap this week because of inconsistent performances on this track type last year as well as in 2014. He scored a 10th at Richmond and a 12th at Phoenix in 2013, but had several results outside the top 20 that will minimize his appeal.
Jul 10 - 5:46 PM

Tony Stewart finished second and first in New Hampshire’s two races of 2011 and hopes to have some of that same strength this year.

Remarkably, that was the second time he finished first and second at New Hampshire during a single season, having performed the feat already in 2005. He also finished first and second in back-to-back races at the end of 1999 and beginning of 2000. Unfortunately, he finished 26th in this race last year before missing the fall event due to injury, so he should be regarded only as a driver to watch.

In three short, flat track races this season, David Gilliland has finished in the 20s at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond.

His consistency should make him a good mid-range pick and his recent bad luck at Daytona could make other fantasy owners overlook him. In addition to three 20-something results on short, flat tracks this year, Gilliland also finished in the low 20s at Martinsville and Phoenix last fall.
