Kasey Kahne – In the last two Talladega races Kahne has finishes of 6th and 4th. Kahne only has two other top tens at Dega and they were second place finishes in 2009 & 2006. Despite his shaky history I think Kahne is a good prospect for the Good Sam 500. He has momentum and at Daytona he had a strong 7th place finish (July). Kahne has done a good job of avoiding trouble on the track (last crash was in June at MIS) and that’s an attribute I want in a driver this week. (Yahoo! B Driver)

Greg Biffle – Biffle has arguably had the second fastest car on restrictor plate tracks this season. The #16 was really fast in May and on the final restart he pushed Kenseth to a big lead over the field. The problem was that it was to big and they quickly got reeled in. If their lead wasn’t to big he would’ve finished 2nd. He ended up finishing 5th. One concern that should be noted about Biffle is his dependance on Matt Kenseth. He doesn’t seem to do a lot of things at plate tracks without him these days. In the last seven Talladega races no driver has scored more points than him. This team is falling apart so pick him at your own risk. (Yahoo! B Driver)

Joey Logano – In four of Logano’s first five races at Talladega he finished in the top ten. In the last two he hasn’t been as fortunate (finished 24th and 26th). At Daytona Logano currently has three consecutive top tens. His finishes in those races are 3rd, 9th and 4th. Logano has a knack for plate racing and I think he has a good chance to once again finish in the top ten. Logano also has momentum and has been running a lot better since his Penske announcement.
