Captain – Kyle Busch === 12 top 10s in 14 career starts here w/ 3 wins and two second-place finishes in his past seven rides.

Marcos Ambrose — 15.2 average finish during Richmond career including a top-5 finish.

Kevin Harvick — 92% of all laps run inside the top 15 during the past seven years. He’s got 14 top 10s in 22 career starts at the track with an 11.5-position average finish.

Clint Bowyer — 6 top 10s in 12 career starts, averaging a 10.5-postion finish.

Kasey Kahne — Risk vs. Reward once again. 6 top 10s in 16 career starts, including a win, but we all know how he’s finished off of strong qualifiers this year.


The big boys are less than sure-fire bets this week. Johnson (15.2), Edwards (15.1) and Kenseth (17.2) all make for difficult plays. Edwards has been dominant of late (3 top 5s and a 10th-place finish), but he’s only produced top 10s in 40% of his short track runs.

Check it out under the lights on Saturday night.
