Driver Recommendations for the Autism Speaks 400 at Dover

Posted by chadmusselman on May 26, 2009

Dover, the Monster Mile, is the venue this Sunday. There are quite a few drivers to choose from that have good numbers here, but there are some that stand out and should be on your team.

Recommendations This Week:

Chaser: Carl Edwards
Carl has five consecutive top 3 finishes at Dover. Top 3 finishes! If he’s going to win the title he has to get back to his winning ways and he should this weekend. His average finish at Dover is 7.7 which is best among active drivers. If he doesn’t get caught up in a wreck, expect to see the back-flip again on Sunday.

Alternate Chaser: Greg Biffle
Greg Biffle has six consecutive top 10 runs at Dover, and averages an 11.2 place finish at the track. He’s also been one of the hottest drivers over the past five races averaging an 8th place finish. (Only Tony Stewart has a better average finish, 6.8, over the last five races.) Eight top 10s in thirteen career races show he knows how to get around the track and should be in the front and contend for the win.

Mark Martin
The numbers for Mark always seem impressive wherever he goes. 45 career races, 28 top 10s, 21 top 5s and four wins. He has the 8th best average finish among active drivers with 12.8. We all know the can race, and there is no reason to believe he won’t do well again this weekend.

Ryan Newman
Three wins, six top 5s, and eight top 10s in fourteen career races are some good numbers for Ryan. They also mean he has an average finish of 10.5 at the track, the 2nd best among active drivers. And have you noticed that Ryan is red-hot over the past several races? He’s averaged an 8.4 place finish the last five races. Impressive numbers which make him worthy of being on your fantasy team this weekend.

Dark Horse: Martin Truex Jr.
Martin does have a win here along with three top 10s and an average finish of 11.3, which ranks among the top. His season so far hasn’t been impressive, but this is a track that he can have a good run. He has also performed well when chosen as the dark horse so far this season.
