Before blowing an engine at Pocono and getting crashed at New Hampshire, Joey Logano had one of the best flat track records of the season with fourth-place finishes at Phoenix and Martinsville, as well as a victory at Richmond.

Before last week’s incident Logano had the second strongest car to his teammate Brad Keselowski so it should be easy to regain his place at the front of the pack. Momentum is a tricky force, however, and back-to-back 40th-place finishes on this track type could derail him. Logano should be a favorite to finish in the top five, but he should also be watch closely during the race for any signs of weakness that could impact his handicap next week at Pocono.

If his past flat track efforts this year are an indication, fantasy players should expect Reed Sorenson to finish somewhere in the 30s in the Crown Royal 400.

Four of Sorenson’s five flat track races ended in a narrow band from 31st at Phoenix to a pair of 34ths at Martinsville and Pocono. The only time he failed to finish in this range was because of a blown tire at Richmond. Sorenson is often overlooked in fantasy racing, but predictability is always welcome.
