Ryan Truex has reliably finished in the 30s in five flat track races this year. His best result was a 30th at Martinsville and his worst was a 36th last week at New Hampshire.
The most comparable track to Indy that he faced is Pocono, where Truex finished 32nd. This consistency gives the team a great set of notes from which to work, but it will limit his fantasy appeal until he can begin logging results in the 20s. Jul 26 - 8:42 AM

Ryan Truex is still looking for his first top-25 of the season as well as his first complete race. His best result this year was a 30th at Martinsville and he finished only one lap down to the leaders on two occasions—at Auto Club and Pocono.

Two of his achievements came on flat tracks, which tend to reward driver skill more than engine superiority. There are typically several strong choices on that track type, however, and that has limited Truex’s effectiveness.

In three starts at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond this year Ryan Truex has been extremely consistent with results ranging from 30th to 35th.

In addition to these three races, Truex also finished 35th in last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. Odds are good he will finish in this same range at New Hampshire, so fantasy players should plan accordingly.

Ryan Truex and the No. 83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry team finished 43rd at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night.

Scored inside the top 10 during a round of green flag pit stops, his climb was quickly slowed as a multi-car accident in turn four left the car with race-ending damage. He called into his crew early in the event asking for more grip throughout the turns. Truex's team opted for a quick air pressure adjustment to provide the driver with additional grip. However, the driver didn't have very long to evaluate the change before getting caught in a multi-car accident exiting turn four on lap 61.-A2B Strategies LLC
