In his new ride with HScott Motorsports, Clint Bowyer should be this year’s best dark horse for the Daytona 500. In 40 career starts on plate tracks, he has the second-best career average finish with a 15.05.

Equally impressive, Bowyer has been consistently strong of both restrictor-plate, superspeedways. He has an average finish of 14.9 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and 15.2 at Daytona International Speedway.

Kevin Harvick has the third-best average finish on plate track among active, fulltime drivers with a 15.54 in 59 starts. One of the reasons for his solid average is because he has two wins at Daytona International Speedway and one at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

In addition, he has finished in the runner-up position five times on NASCAR’s biggest courses, so he deserves to anchor many fantasy players’ rosters.

Kurt Busch has the fourth-best average finish on plate tracks with a 16.81, but that only tells half the story. He has amassed this amazing average starting 59 races, which makes him a more than solid plate racer.

For all that success, however, he has yet to win one of the restrictor-plate, superspeedway events. He has finished second three times and all of these solid runs came in the Great American Race; he was second in the 2003, 2005, and 2008 Daytona 500s.

Jimmie Johnson has been an all-or-nothing racer on plate tracks during his career. With 18 top-fives in his career, he is second only to Dale Earnhardt Jr. in that regard, but his career average finish of 16.93 puts him sixth on that chart.

Johnson is a much more predictable value on unrestricted, intermediate speedways, so fantasy owners do not need to worry about starting him in the Daytona 500. If he makes his way onto the roster, however, and develops some momentum players may want to hold him this May at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Matt Kenseth has the eighth-best average finish among fulltime, active drivers on this track type but he is heading in the wrong direction. His last four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways ended outside the top 20.

In fact, since joining Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013, he has scored only three top-10s in 12 starts and probably should be avoided in the Daytona 500. His one shining moment came in the 2014 Chase when he finished second in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway

Bobby Hamilton, Jr.’s full circle in racing has led the Nashville, Tennessee third-generation racer right back to his roots…right back to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.

Hamilton is also planning a full season on the ARCA tour. He will be driving the No. 4 Makeover Mortgage-AmericanStairDesign.com Dodge. His wife Stephanie is listed as the car owner. Chuck Adcock is his crew chief. Hamilton formed the team – Hamilton-Hughes Racing – in the off-season. "The No. 4 goes back to my dad (Bobby Hamilton, Sr.). He had the most fun in racing when he ran the 4 car for Morgan-McClure (Motorsports). We both raced the Kodak 4 car. The 4 was a number we shared, so it’s pretty cool to have it back on our car. And my dad’s championship in the Trucks was with the 4, so the number is very special to me."

Kevin Harvick has three wins in the non-points Sprint Unlimited exhibition race – 2009, 2010 and 2013 – tying him for second-most with owner and teammate Tony Stewart and NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett.

In the 2009 Unlimited, Harvick survived an incident-filled race that saw a record eight caution periods and less than half the starting field make it to the checkered flag. The following year, he joined Neil Bonnett, Ken Schrader and Stewart as the fourth driver in event history to win consecutive races, and he did so driving a backup car he never got to practice, passing Greg Biffle with two laps remaining in a green-white-checkered finish. He was declared the winner when a multicar incident ended the race under caution. In his 2013 win, Harvick led 40 of 75 laps, dominating the second and third segments en route to his third Sprint Unlimited victory in five years.-TSC
