Dale Earnhardt Jr. surged into the top 10 in the closing laps of last week’s Crown Royal 400 at Indy. His ninth-place finish in that race extended his top-10 streak on flat tracks to nine consecutive events stretching back to last year’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire.

Earnhardt is the only driver this season with a perfect record of top-10s and that suggests he should be on most fantasy rosters. Moreover, Pocono has long been one of Hendrick Motorsports best tracks throughout that organization’s history.

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.

Greg Biffle swept the top 10 last year at Pocono with a second in the Party in the Poconos 400 and a 10th in the GoBowling.com 400. This June, he could manage to finish only 16th in Pocono’s first race.

Biffle’s flat track record in general has been anemic in 2014 with the 13th-place finish he recorded last week at Indy as his high-water mark. Biffle should only be used if he fits a specific niche on a fantasy player’s roster.

Cole Custer is anxiously awaiting his return this week to Iowa Speedway for this year’s second NASCAR K&N Pro Series East-West combination race, the Autolite Iridium XP 150, on Friday.

Sixteen-year-old Custer led wire-to-wire to win the event a year ago and hopes to repeat and become the first driver with multiple victories in the prestigious East-West race. Custer’s win at Iowa last year marked his first of two series victories in his rookie season. This year, the 16-year-old from Ladera Ranch, California is competing in select events in the East and West divisions of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. This will mark his sixth overall series start of 2014, driving BMR’s No. 00 NAPA AUTO PARTS/HAAS Automation entry.-BMR Racing

Kasey Kahne is still seeking his first victory of the season, which would essentially lock him into the Chase.

Last week Kahne led the most laps in the Brickyard 400 and these two courses are among the most comparable on the circuit, so this is perhaps his best opportunity to find Victory Lane. With Michigan and Atlanta still to come before the Chase begins, he still has a couple of other strong tracks ahead.

With one victory and a second-place finish in his last two GoBowling.com 400s, Jeff Gordon has a great opportunity to win back-to-back races for the first time since 2007. That year he won the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega and the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte in consecutive weeks.
