Matt Kenseth has the eighth-best average finish among fulltime, active drivers on this track type but he is heading in the wrong direction. His last four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways ended outside the top 20.

In fact, since joining Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013, he has scored only three top-10s in 12 starts and probably should be avoided in the Daytona 500. His one shining moment came in the 2014 Chase when he finished second in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway

He had the most fun in racing when he ran the 4 car for Morgan-McClure (Motorsports). We both raced the Kodak 4 car. The 4 was a number we shared, so it’s pretty cool to have it back on our car. And my dad’s championship in the Trucks was with the 4, so the number is very special to me."

Kevin Harvick has three wins in the non-points Sprint Unlimited exhibition race – 2009, 2010 and 2013 – tying him for second-most with owner and teammate Tony Stewart and NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett.

In the 2009 Unlimited, Harvick survived an incident-filled race that saw a record eight caution periods and less than half the starting field make it to the checkered flag. The following year, he joined Neil Bonnett, Ken Schrader and Stewart as the fourth driver in event history to win consecutive races, and he did so driving a backup car he never got to practice, passing Greg Biffle with two laps remaining in a green-white-checkered finish. He was declared the winner when a multicar incident ended the race under caution. In his 2013 win, Harvick led 40 of 75 laps, dominating the second and third segments en route to his third Sprint Unlimited victory in five years.-TSC

Brian Vickers will drive the No. 14 if he is approved by NASCAR to return to the seat of a Cup car, according to NBC Sports’ Dustin Long. Vickers has missed much of the past several seasons as he battled blood clots.

Vickers is a solid driver and this team is capable of performing to the level of teammates Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch, but fantasy owners should be a little leery because there could be a little rust on the racer.
