Captain – Joey Logano — four top 10s in six career Talladega starts

Kurt Busch – taking a flier on his history at the track while swallowing his 27th-place average finish in 2012.

Martin Truex, Jr. — four top 10s (one top 5) in his Talladega history. I’m looking at him more for his 2012 totals to date. Ride the hot hand and use a start on someone where I’ve held back.

Jamie McMurray — six top 10s, including a victory, on his Talladega resume.

Clint Bowyer — two wins and six top 10s here. And, he’s going to wear this BADASS helmet.
