Driver Recommendations for 2010 Price Chopper 400 at Kansas Speedway

Posted by chadmusselman on September 27, 2010

The third race of the chase is at the Kansas Speedway, and will be the tenth Sprint Cup race at the track.  Jimmie is making his run to the top and after winning last week catapulted himself to second.  Clint Bowyer didn’t do himself any favors with the bad run last week, and getting caught cheating.  Now he’s down to 12th in points, 235 points back.  So, who will be the one to win this weekend and jump the most spots in the standings?

This Week’s Recommendations

Chaser: Jimmie Johnson
He’s baack.  Jimmie won last week and it looks like he could be back to dominating the chase as he has done the last four seasons.  In his eight races at Kansas Jimmie has collected six top ten, two top five finishes and one win.  He’s clearly the best driver in NASCAR, so why wouldn’t he be on your team?  Pick him and watch him rack up the points for you.

Alternate Chaser: Jeff Gordon
No one has a better record at Kansas than Jeff.  His 7 top ten and 6 top five finishes are the most, and his two wins ties Jeff with Tony Stewart for the lead.  It’s almost a lock that Jeff will finish in the top ten in Kansas.  If you don’t have Jimmie on your team you need to have Jeff.  One of these two guys should win on Sunday.

Mark Martin
Mark only has 4 top ten finishes at Kansas in the 9 races at the track, but his average finish of 12.4 is impressive and good enough for 5th best.  Mark has been on a bit of a slide lately.  He hasn’t had a top ten finish since race 21 at Pocono Raceway.  He did finish 12th last week, which is a good sign and hopefully means he can get another top ten finish in Kansas this weekend.

Ryan Newman
In the first three races at Kansas, Ryan finished 2nd, 2nd, and 1st.  Since then he only has one top 20 finish, 16th in 2008.  Ryan is long over-due for another top ten finish at Kansas, and since it’s been 7 years since his last one, why wouldn’t this be the year that he does it?  He has had a solid season sitting in 13th place, has done well over the past 5 races, averaging a 8.2 place finish.  He has the momentum and should fare well this weekend.

Dark Horse: Kasey Kahne
Kasey has a couple of top ten finishes in Kansas over the last three races here and could be a good pick to surprise and do well this weekend.  He’s 19th in points with only 6 top five and 8 top ten finishes, which is a big disappointment.  Kasey needs to rebound and have a few good races to end the season and get his confidence back up and be ready to kick off the 2011 season strong.
