Kurt Busch – No driver had a tougher Homestead than Kurt Busch last season. On lap #3 he had transmission problems and while he was in the garage he blew up his career. Kurt Busch has some fantasy potential again. The #78 team is a step up from the #51 and a few weeks ago at Texas he finished 8th. Kurt Busch is a risky pick at Homestead. In his last nine races here he has four top five finishes but his non-top five average finish is 34.8. Look for him to finish between 8th and 15th. (Yahoo! B Driver)

Paul Menard – Menard has had some success at high-speed intermediate tracks this year but he’s very inconsistent. It’s hard to know what you’ll get from him each week. It could be good or it could be bad. If you pick him the safe thing to assume is a mid pack finish. At high-speed intermediate tracks this season his 15.4 average finish ranks as the 15th best this season. Menard hasn’t had any success at Homestead. He has a 23.8 average finish and has only led one lap. He’s raced here six times and he’s never finished in the top fifteen or started in the top fifteen. His stats especially his average finish aren’t skewed. He’s finished on the lead lap in four of his six races and has failed to only complete six laps. (Yahoo! B Driver)
