2013 Flashback
Trash the 2014 statistics and on focus on 2013 and you'll average better scores since this year's rules package makes last year's numbers insignificant. Of course, Mr. Freaky Fast Kevin Harvick was good last year and he is still good.

Top 15 Finishers at Dover International Speedway on June 2, 2013:
  1. Tony Stewart
  2. Juan Pablo Montoya  
  3. Jeff Gordon 
  4. Kyle Busch  
  5. Brad Keselowski  
  6. Clint Bowyer  
  7. Joey Logano  
  8. Kevin Harvick 
  9. Mark Martin

  11. Jeff Burton  
  12. Kurt Busch  
  13. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.  
  14. Carl Edwards  
  15. Greg Biffle

The Likely Suspects: Dover International Speedway is my home track and a favorite for many drivers who love the challenge and exciting short-track racing at the "Monster Mile." Look for these drivers to run well this weekend: Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards. Ordinarily I would include Jimmie Johnson in this list. However, Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 team have been plagued by car control issues lately and will have a lousy pit stall position due to penalties resulting from Charlotte infractions.

My 2 Cents:  My no-brainer pick this week is the steady, calm, cool and collected Matt Kenseth. My next picks are Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer and last week's winner Carl Edwards. I will complete my team with Brett Moffitt and Danica Patrick.

My final four: Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Martin Truex Jr. and Danica Patrick.
