After two years of part-time competition, Daniel Suàrez showed what he was capable of with a full schedule in 2013.

Despite a slow start to the season, the Drive for Diversity competitor recorded the second-most top fives (6) and top 10s (9) and registered his first career victory at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway. The NASCAR Next driver led the series with four runner-up finishes, completed more laps than anybody (1,779), ranked third in average finish (8.9) and fourth in laps led (209).-NASCAR K&N Pro Series-East

Matt Kenseth entered the most recent short track race at Richmond with a perfect record of top-15 finishes on this track type, but crash damage dropped the No. 20 70 laps off the pace and relegated Kenseth to a 41st-place finish in the Federated Auto Parts 400. He hopes to rebound in the Goody's 500.

Kenseth also ended the 2013 season with an equally long streak, which gives him nine top-15s in his last 10 races. He should be viewed as a good fantasy value this week.

Denny Hamlin finished sixth or better in nine consecutive races from 2006 through 2010, but his efforts have fallen off in recent attempts. Only three of his last six attempts have resulted in top-10s.

During his incredible streak, he won four races and finished second on two other occasions. This spring he finished 19th, but never contended for a top-five. That makes him a risky proposition.

Clint Bowyer has the longest active streak of top-10s at Martinsville. He has finished that well in his last five races, including a ninth this spring.

Bowyer swept the top five in 2013 and had another fifth-place finish at the end of 2012. If his STP 500 attempt last year is an indication, he is capable of challenging for a victory because he finished second to Johnson in that event. Altogether, that makes him a great pick in most games.

Jimmie Johnson is the top-ranked driver for the Goody's 500 Martinsville Speedway. He enters the weekend with two victories, a fifth, and a second in his last four races there.

What a difference a week makes. Johnson was knocked out of playoff contention with poor finishes at Kansas, Charlotte, and Talladega. If he wins this week, it will in his new unaccustomed role as Chase spoiler.

Ryan Preece announced today that he is leaving Flamingo Motorsports to join TS Haulers Racing for the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season.

The move for Preece ends a three-year stint with the Massachusetts-based Flamingo Motorsports No. 16 team that saw the pairing capture the 2013 Whelen Modified Tour title and finish as the championship runner-up in 2012 and 2014. The move comes fresh off of winning the final two races of 2014, including Sunday at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The NASCAR Next driver from Berlin, Connecticut, now moves on to the Connecticut-based No. 6 TS Haulers Racing team that recently parted ways with Ron Silk.

When a driver makes a switch from a full-bodied stock car to a modified car, one of the best things he can do is partner up with an established team to help him with his learning curve of competing in a drastically different car.

Spencer Davis made the wise decision to team up with Hillbilly Racing and veteran car owner/crew chief David Hill and it paid immediate dividends in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour as Davis won the 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. Davis finished the season with seven top-10 finishes in 14 races on the southern tour and ended up ninth in the final standings which made the 15-year old driver happy. Davis also made four starts in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and finished with back-to-back top-10s, highlighted by a season-best seventh-place showing at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park this past Sunday in the season finale.

Kasey Kahne raced to a 12th-place finish in the Geico 500, but missed the Chase by three points. He was one of three Hendrick Motorsports drivers who were eliminated in the Contender round along with Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Kahne would actually have needed to finish four positions better than he did in order to displace his teammate Jeff Gordon because the tie-breaker would have been in the No. 24’s favor, but this was one more example of just how close the contests are going to be in the new knockout-style Chase.

Kyle Busch entered the Geico 500 with a 26-point cushion over the elimination bubble and as such was the most likely driver to advance to the Eliminator round on points. He raced conservatively in the back of the pack for most of the race, but was run over from behind on lap 104 when Aric Almirola and JJ Yeley triggered a 10-car accident. Busch finished 40th.

Busch sustained heavy damage, but the team completely remade the car in a mere 45 minutes. Still that was not enough to keep him from falling to ninth in the standings, seven markers behind Jeff Gordon—the last driver to advance based on points.

Landon Cassill earned his first career top-10 in the NASCAR Cup series after finishing fourth in the Geico 500. His previous best result was an 11th, also scored on this track in the spring.

With back-to-back career bests on this track, it is safe to say that Cassill has a knack for plate racing. Unfortunately, that will not be particularly useful knowledge for fantasy players until next February’s Daytona 500.

It was the worst finish of the season for Doug Coby. But in the end, it didn't matter, as the Milford, Connecticut driver lifted the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour trophy for the second time in three seasons Sunday.

The 35-year-old finished 17th and two laps down in the season finale Sunoco World Series 150 presented by Xtra Mart at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The race was won by defending tour champion Ryan Preece. It was Coby and the No. 2 Dunleavy's Repair/HEX Performance/Fox Shocks Chevrolet team, though, who earned the big trophy on the strength of an outstanding season that included a win and nine top fives in 13 races. Coby, who finished second in points to Preece last year, kicked off 2014 with a win in the non-points UNOH Battle At The Beach at Daytona International Speedway. Preece led twice for a race-high 137 laps, including the final 73. A late caution pushed the race to 151 laps. It was Preece's first win at Thompson after four runner-up finishes at the .625-mile banked oval. Earlier in the day, Preece wrapped up the track's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Sunoco Modified Division championship.
