AJ Allmendinger has three top-10s to his credit in 2014 and they could not have come on a more diverse group of tracks. He finished fifth at Talladega, sixth at Richmond, and eighth at Auto Club.

Allmendinger was also one of the favorites on the road course of Sonoma until he was slowed by crash damage. This diversity makes him an interesting fantasy choice, but he has cracked the top 20 only seven times and finished on the lead lap in fewer than half his starts. Fantasy owners may use him provisionally, but it will take some time before he is considered a place-and-hold type of driver.

Ty Dillon (#3 Bass Pro Shops/NRA Museum Chevrolet Camaro) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first practice for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

His average of 188.277 mph was best of the 13 cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #42 Justin Marks, #33 Brandon Jones, #98 Aric Almirola and #39 Ryan Sieg are the rest of the top five on this list.

Erik Jones (#20 DEWALT FLEXVOLT Toyota Camry) led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

The lap of 193.353 mph was the best of the 29 cars completing laps in this session. #18 David Ragan, #3 Ty Dillon, #33 Brandon Jones and #42 Justin Marks are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Garrett Smithley in the #0 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.

Michael McDowell finished 15th in the Daytona 500, which made him one of the better fantasy values this spring. In the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, he barely missed sweeping the top 20 with a result of 21st.

In most salary cap games, McDowell is one of the 10 cheapest drivers, so when he finishes in or near the top half of the field he is a great way to extend one’s budget. Last week, a broken rear end snapped a 16-race stretch in which McDowell was running at the end of the show. He will be determined to restart that streak.

Kyle Busch is the only driver to finish in the top five in both plate races this season. He was third in the Daytona 500 and second in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Those were his first top-10s after a six-race hiatus from the front of the pack. Busch can be an all or nothing driver and he has finished either in the top five or outside the top 10 in his last 19 restrictor-plate, superspeedway attempts. Given this tendency, approach him with caution.

Ryan Blaney has a pair of top-10s on the restrictor-plate Talladega SuperSpeedway, but on the sister Daytona International Speedway he is still seeking his first top-15.

Blaney’s best result on this 2.5-mile superspeedway was a 19th this spring. His only other attempt on this course ended in a blown engine and crash damage. He has a good chance of finishing in the top 10 if he stays out of trouble.

Landon Cassill is batting 0.500 in his last four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways in regard to top-15s. He finished 11th this May at Talladega SuperSpeedway and was 13th in last year’s edition of the Coke Zero 400.

Cassill is a solid bargain in most salary cap games considering the overall strength of Front Row Motorsports on this course type. Fantasy owners should avoid the temptation to go all in on dark horses, but they should liberally season a roster.

Bobby Labonte inherited the No. 32 ride on restrictor-plate, superspeedways from his brother Terry and he has done fairly well in it. In six previous starts in that car his best result was a 19th this May on Talladega SuperSpeedway. The Coke Zero 400 will mark his lucky seventh start for Frank Stoddard.

Specialty drivers are not always a great value, but they have their place in games that limit allocations or where they are bargain-basement priced. Keep Labonte in mind when filling the final slot.
