Brad Keselowski has been nearly perfect on flat tracks this year with a victory at New Hampshire and top-fives at Phoenix, Richmond, and Pocono. To score another such finish, however, he will need to avoid contact in the pits.
Paul Menard entered the 2013 Party in the Poconos 400 with a six-race streak of results 16th or better. In his last three attempts, however, he has failed to crack the top 25 a single time.
Clint Bowyer has seldom stumbled at Pocono during his career, but he has rarely excelled as well. In his last 12 starts on this track he has a worst finish on only 18th and an average of 11.1, but he has recorded only one top-five. That strong run came in 2009.
Kurt Busch has been uneven at times during the 2014 season, but he enters the GoBowling.com 400 weekend with a three-race, top-10 streak at Pocono.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. surged into the top 10 in the closing laps of last week’s Crown Royal 400 at Indy. His ninth-place finish in that race extended his top-10 streak on flat tracks to nine consecutive events stretching back to last year’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire.
Martin Truex Jr. is showing an uneven tendency on flat tracks in 2014. In six starts he has top 15 finishes at Richmond, Pocono, and New Hampshire but his other three efforts ended in the 20s at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Indy.
Greg Biffle swept the top 10 last year at Pocono with a second in the Party in the Poconos 400 and a 10th in the GoBowling.com 400. This June, he could manage to finish only 16th in Pocono’s first race.
