David Gilliland has shown a lot of consistency at Pocono in the past four seasons with six of seven runs ending in the 20s.

All of these starts came with his current team Front Row Motorsports. After qualifying 30th on Friday, he simply needs to show a little patience to climb into that range one more time.

David Gilliland has finished on the lead lap in his last three starts on flat tracks. He went the distance at Richmond, Pocono, and New Hampshire to finished 20th, 28th, and 24th respectively.

Staying on the lead lap is a key component to potentially earning a top-20 finish, so this should improve his odds slightly on Sunday. Unfortunately, he finished at least one lap off the pace in his previous eight flat track starts.

There have not been very many highs for the No. 38 team and David Gilliland, but they have scored five top-25 results in 19 races so far this season.

Gilliland was considered a wild card threat at Daytona in the Coke Zero 400 after he won the pole, but an accident removed him from contention. Instead some of his best results have come on short, flat tracks where he completed all the laps at Richmond to earn a 20th-place finish and again last week at New Hampshire en route to a 24th.

In three short, flat track races this season, David Gilliland has finished in the 20s at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond.

His consistency should make him a good mid-range pick and his recent bad luck at Daytona could make other fantasy owners overlook him. In addition to three 20-something results on short, flat tracks this year, Gilliland also finished in the low 20s at Martinsville and Phoenix last fall.

"Pocono is always challenging. It's three completely different turns.. You've got to pick your turn.
