Fantasy owners searching for a solid dark horse pick might want to take a close look at Cole Whitt. Four of his last five unrestricted oval races ended in a narrow band from 18th through 28th.

At his level, that makes him a good value especially since three of these results were scored on 1.5-mile tracks. Last week he was unable to keep the streak alive because of crash damage in the Quicken Loans 500k.

Cole Whitt has been hovering around the 30th-place mark on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Most of his results ended in the 27th- to 36th-place range with one very solid result at Kansas. He finished 23rd in the Hollywood Casino 400.

That race was difficult on tires and witnessed a lot of attrition. Whitt’s ability to save his rubber makes him more attractive than many of the other rookies.

Three of Cole Whitt’s five races on short tracks this season have ended in a narrow band of results around 30th. His best finish was a 29th in the STP 500 at Martinsville this spring.

Whitt’s last two attempts on this short track ended in a pair of 30ths at Bristol and Richmond, while his two bad results came as the result of on track incidents. Whitt is predictable, but not necessarily a good value.

Cole Whitt has made two previous starts at Dover and finished 27th in both attempts. These results were earned in this race last fall and in the spring FedEx 400.

Whitt qualified 33rd and 31st in those two races respectively, which is a strong indication that his overall race time experience mirrored the results. That gives the team a good set of notes from which to work and hopefully improve in their third Dover start.

Cole Whitt has been one of the most consistent drivers on short, flat tracks this year, but he will be useful to fantasy owners only in extreme need. Four of his five races on this track type have ended a narrow band from 27th to 30th.

While that does not seem overly impressive on its face, Whitt has consistently outperformed 30 percent of the field and could be used as a bargain basement pick.

Based on his consistency, Cole Whitt could be a conditionally good pick for fantasy players. His last four efforts on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks of Texas, Kansas, Charlotte, and Kentucky have ended in results ranging from 27th to 31st.

Whitt will not anchor many rosters, but if he fits the final niche he could be a good value. Consistency is often at least as important for players as raw strength.

Cole Whitt has been consistent on flat tracks this season with five results ranging from 27th through 32nd.

Whitt’s Pocono 400 finish was 30th, which is close to his average on minimally-banked courses. Fantasy owners can expect another result in that same range and plan accordingly.

Cole Whitt has shown promise on NASCAR’s flat tracks. He finished in the top 30 in four of five races, with a best of 27th being earned at Phoenix. His other efforts netted a 29th at Martinsville, 30th at Pocono, and 28th at New Hampshire, which leaves a 41st at Richmond as the only poor effort.

At Richmond, Whitt had tire issues that sent him behind the wall for an extended stay. He was not the only driver to experience trouble that evening as veteran Clint Bowyer also had to make extensive repairs after a tire failure. Whitt’s consistency otherwise makes him an interesting dark horse choice for a top-25.

What’s in a name? In Cole Whitt’s case it would appear to be worth two positions. In his first eight races this season with Swan Racing he posted an average finish of about 31st. His latest 11 races netted and average of 29th.

Equally important, Whitt has been improving during races. His first eight attempts witnessed him finishing better than he qualified in 63 percent of his starts; the last 11 have shown advancement in 82 percent.

Cole Whitt will make his first New Hampshire Cup start this week. Fantasy players will need to determine his fantasy relevance based on performances in other short, flat track races at the Cup level.

Whitt has not been great on the short, flat tracks of Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond with an average finish of 34.4. His best effort of 27th came in the Profit 500k at Phoenix earlier this year, however, and that could bode well for another top-30 finish in the Camping World RV Sales 301.

Cole Whitt and the No. 26 Scorpyd Crossbows Toyota Camry team finished 41st at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway in the Toyota Owners 400 on Saturday night.

Swan Racing announced it has successfully restructured the company by finding solutions for the No. 26 and No. 30 teams in an attempt to save the jobs of the crews, the drivers, and to keep those teams competing throughout the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

As a result, Anthony Marlowe has merged his ownership of the No. 26 team into BK Racing, effective immediately. Cole Whitt will remain behind the wheel of the No. 26.-Swan Racing PR
