Josh Wise qualified in 28 of 31 attempts and made the most of his opportunities by keeping the No. 30 running at the end of 20 of those races.
None of his failures to finish suggest starting and parking, which means this team did the very best they could each week. Wise scored one top-25 when he advanced 16 spots at Kentucky Speedway in July and he had two other results just outside that mark. His two close calls came at Pocono Raceway and Watkins Glen.

Josh Wise has not finished in the top-35 at Texas Motor Speedway in his last five of 10 career starts.

In fact, he has only one top-35 that came in spring 2013. Wise finished 30th in that race after qualifying 40th. Since then he has suffered crash damage twice and retired with a vibration once. He will start 40th this week as well and should at least earn positive place-differential points.

The #30 TMG Chevy is shown as being 'withdrawn' on the Hellman's 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway entry list.

Per a tweet by @TMG30: "We are taking the Dega weekend off. We are still building and our plate program is just not where it needs to be to qualify." Driver @Josh_Wise also tweeted: "Pretty bummed we aren't going to make it to @TalladegaSuperS this week. One of the few tracks left that is an equalizer in the race." (10-19-2016)

Josh Wise has finished 35th or worse in six of seven similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this year with a 35.7 average finish.

One race outside that range is interesting, however. In the Quaker State 400 this July at Kentucky Speedway, Wise was one of the best values with a 24th-place finish enhanced by 16 place-differential points after he started dead last.

Josh Wise finished 36th in back-to-back races at Dover International Speedway. He started 41st last fall and 40th this spring.

Essentially, he has moved up via attrition, but could earn a few roster slots in games where he is bargain-basement priced. If a "Big One" occurs, he is likely to be out of harm’s way.

Josh Wise finished 30th in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway two weeks ago, which was his first top-30 on a short, flat track with the No. 30 The Motorsports Group team.

This organization is one of most lightly-funded in the field, but they make the most of their opportunities. The majority of their advances through the field come as the result of attrition, however, and that is difficult to predict.

Josh Wise will start the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway dead last, in 40th position. That could make him a surprisingly good value because he is virtually guaranteed to earn positive place-differential points.

Wise started the Quaker State 400 in 40th as well. He lost three laps before the race was over, but finished 24th and that gave him 16 extra points added to his finishing total.

Josh Wise qualified well in this springs’ Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. He rolled off the grid 31st, but in a race with limited attrition, he slipped to 39th at the finish—the next-to-last car in the field.

The No. 30 Motorsports Group team does not have enough funding to contend for a lead lap finish, but they should expect a little better result based on perseverance and attrition.

Josh Wise was heading in the right direction at Darlington Raceway until last season. In three starts, he finished 43rd in 2012, 38th in 2013, and 21st in 2014. Last year, he failed to qualify Frank Stoddard’s No. 32.

If he makes the show this week, he will not improve on his career-best finish, but with a little attrition, he could get a second-best result. He is unlikely to score many fantasy points, however.

With 30 minutes remaining in final practice for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Josh Wise blew a tire and slammed the wall.

The No. 30 team will probably need to go to a backup car, but with only 40 entrants they are not in danger of going home. Wise will probably start last and move up the grid only through attrition.

There is very little fantasy hope for Josh Wise on short tracks, based on his 2016 experience. In three starts this year he finished in the bottom three twice and has a best effort of 33rd.

The slightest bit of good news comes in the form of his 33rd. That was earned at Bristol Motor Speedway this spring, suggesting he is a little better on this course than Martinsville Speedway or Richmond International Raceway. It is not enough to sway fantasy owners to start him, however.

Josh Wise has not always been a great value in 2016, but he has been a consistent one. In 18 starts this year, he has finished better than he qualified 12 times, which equates to 66.7 percent of the time.

Wise has one top-25 and three more top-30s to his credit, and during these four races he has averaged nearly 12 place-differential points added to his total. On those weekends, he was worth starting. Those strong runs came mostly on the unrestricted, intermediate speedways of Kentucky Speedway, Pocono Raceway, and Michigan International Speedway. He was also a solid value last week at Watkins Glen International.

Josh Wise has scored two top-30 finishes in seven road course starts, but both of these have come at Sonoma Raceway. His best finish at Watkins Glen was a 38th scored in 2014.

Wise is not going to be considered one of the favorites in any game, but players who like to take bargains to stretch the top of the cap value will note that he is one of the least expensive drivers everywhere.

Josh Wise will start a Pocono Raceway event in 38th for the third consecutive time. He qualified in that position in June 2015 and again this June. He missed the August 2015 event.

After starting 38th, Wise has moved up through the grid in his last two attempts. He finished one lap off the lead lap in both events to score a 29th in 2015 and 27th this year.

Josh Wise was the one driver who failed to make the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. He posted the slowest lap overall and as a non-charter team the No. 30 was not locked into the show.

He was not a particularly popular pre-race pick, but make certain Wise is not on any fantasy roster.
