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.

Truex should be watched closely this week for signs that he will return to his top-15 form. If he practices and qualifies well in GoBowling.com 400’s preliminary events he could be one of this week’s best dark horses.

Front Row Motorsports will enter a third car for David Gilliland for the Daytona 500. This organization has two charters, which will currently be used for Chris Buescher and Landon Cassill, so Gilliland will have to race the No. 35 into the show.

The new charter system will create some interesting scenarios for young drivers and part time teams, but not as much as the reduction of the field from 43 to 40 cars. Currently the list for the 500 is at 42, which would have meant everyone was guaranteed to start in the past. If Gilliland makes the show, he has a solid restrictor-plate, superspeedway record and could be a great fantasy dark horse.

Tony Stewart will receive the same exemption from NASCAR’s rule that drivers must attempt the full season in order to be Chase eligible as Kyle Busch did last year, according to the Sporting News. He will miss an indeterminate number of races after injuring his back in an off-road accident in California.

Stewart is going to need to pick up his pace if he wants to earn enough points to be inside the top 30 or even win a race, so the exemption may be moot. As of now, Stewart cannot be considered a strong fantasy value.

When NASCAR announced the 36 charters and reduction of race fields from 43 to 40 cars, it put Ryan Blaney is a situation he knows all-too-well: He must race his way into the Daytona 500 and qualify as one of four drivers to make the show on time each week during 2016.

Michael Waltrip Racing’s charters will be purchased by Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch, while HScott Motorsports will lease a charter from Premium Motorsports this season for the No. 46 of Michael Annett, according the NBC’s Dustin Long. Blaney is capable of making every race, but fantasy owners will have to pay close attention each week to insure he qualifies.

Seven and 11 are considered lucky numbers in the dice game craps, but they have not elevated Brad Keselowski to the top 10 on either the top-five or top-10 lists. He sits just outside that mark in terms of number of front-of-pack results and has the 12th-best average finish of 19.36.

With an average finish that is barely inside the top 20, players might be inclined to believe Greg Biffle is not a very strong plate racer. That ranks him 13th among active, fulltime drivers however, and his 14th top-10s places him 10th on that chart.

NASCAR is about current achievements and five of Biffle’s last six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways have been 20th or worse. Watch him, but only start him if he looks comfortable in the draft during prelims.
