Harrison Rhodes will make his fifth start in the Cup series this week in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.

Rhodes will make his first start at Richmond, but be now has two starts on short tracks. Neither of them were particularly productive with a 35th at Martinsville Speedway and a 37th at Bristol Motor Speedway, so this will be a week to evaluate his potential – but do not start him.

In terms of career average finishes, Richmond Raceway ranks as Ryan Blaney’s worst track with a 30.3 in four starts.

Blaney’s career is still in its infancy, so there is still plenty of time for these numbers to change and Richmond may not always be his worst track. The fact remains that he has not yet cracked the top 15 there, however, and three of his four results landed outside the top 25.

Trevor Bayne has three mid-teens finishes in his last four Richmond Raceway starts.

Bayne earned a career-best last spring in the Toyota Owners 400 when he finished 13th; his other two mid-teens finishes in the past four races came in 2016. That streak was broken last fall when he fell two laps off the pace to finish 25th. He is a bit of a coin toss this week, but should be activated if he practices well.

Darrell Wallace Jr. will make his first appearance at Richmond Raceway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He finished 34th at Martinsville and 16th at Bristol in his first two short track runs of the season.

Wallace replaced Aric Almirola in four races during the 2017 season but did not compete at a short track, so his 2018 Martinsville and Bristol performances are the best gauges fantasy owners have going into the weekend. Last week, Wallace preformed aggressively to get the No. 43 car to the front and lead his first laps of the season, Wallace would ultimately fall back to 16th as he lost speed with old tires while teams waited on NASCAR to release the final set during Monday’s race finale. As Wallace becomes more comfortable week to week at the Cup level the driver will make more aggressive moves to get Richard Petty Motorsport back up to the front.

As Erik Jones’ continues to hunt his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win, the circuits three short tracks gives the young driver the opportunity to earn it.

Jones finished sixth in last year’s fall race at Richmond Raceway improving on his 38th-place finish in his debut when he cut a tire and was out of the race on lap six. Before last year’s early exit, Jones topped second practice and qualified 20th. By the time the fall race at Richmond and the regular season finale came around Jones was the talk of the town as fans and fantasy owners anxiously awaited his first win. A month earlier Jones dominated at the Bristol Motor Speedway night race before being out raced by Kyle Busch with 55 laps to go.

Kevin Harvick’s last win at Richmond Raceway came during the 2013 spring race and the driver has stayed consistently successful at NASCAR’s third short-track of the season.

The last time Kevin Harvick won at Richmond was in the spring of 2013 when a late-race caution caused a green-white-checkered finish. The restart greatly benefited the then Richard Childress driver who was running in the back half of the top 10 before the yellow. Since the win, Harvick has recorded five top-fives at the track in nine races. Last year in this race Harvick finished fifth for the third time in row at Richmond, he broke his streak when he finished 15th in the 2017 regular season finale. His past success at Richmond is coupled with his stellar start of 2018 in which he’s ended the race in Victory Lane. While a poor finish at Auto Club thawed the driver from pulling off a four race winning, Harvick proved that he could quickly bounce back with a runner-up finish at Texas and a top-10 at Bristol.

After a lackluster start to the 2018 ARCA Racing Series season, Gus Dean and his Win-Tron Racing team could use a spark. Salem Speedway could be just what the doctor ordered. Dean finished second in last year's Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200.

The rough, tough historic high-banks of Salem have always been a favorite for the Bluffton, SC driver. Dean (No. 32 GREE Cooling Products-Baker Distributing Chevrolet) tested last week at the southern Indiana short track. Dean and crew chief Jamie Jones, with a few mock qualifying runs in between, focused on race runs during the test. Dean, the winner at Talladega in 2016, is still looking for his career-first General Tire Pole.

Jeb Burton (No. 3 Estes Express Lines Chevrolet Camaro) will be making his first start for Richard Childress Racing (RCR) this weekend at Richmond Raceway.

The 25-year-old driver has two previous NASCAR Xfinity Series starts and two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts at the track. Said Burton: "Having competed in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series at Richmond Raceway will definitely help me prepare for this upcoming weekend. Richmond is a difficult race track, but I believe my experience will pay off and help us get a good set up on our car during practice for the race."-RCR
