Greg Biffle – Greg Biffle is a fantasy NASCAR prospect who it’s hard to get your hands around. At New Hampshire since fall 2008 when he went to victory lane he’s either been really good or a mid to high teens performer. In the last 11 races he has 5 top tens and 6 results between 15th and 18th. One bright spot about him is that he’s been a safe fantasy pick who hasn’t really burned anyone. Last fall at New Hampshire he had a solid performance. He started in 10th, slid back to the high-teens at the mid-point, but on lap 166 he radioed his team and told them his car came to life after getting four new tires. In the last half of the race he drove all the way up to a 3rd place finish. There was no funny business associated with that result. In July last year he started in 22nd, had the 19th best driver rating and finished 15th. Also in the race he had a 16th place average running position. In fall 2012 he was uncompetitive. He had a 14th place average running position and finished 18th. This season at the two tracks I consider similar he’s had results of 17th (Phoenix) and 15th (Richmond). I’m predicting a mid-pack finish for him in the New Hampshire Camping World RV Sales 301. (Yahoo B Driver)

Paul Menard – Shorter flat tracks like New Hampshire have been an historical weakness for Paul Menard. In 44 races on this sub track type he’s only finished in the top ten three times! Not one of those top tens came at New Hampshire. The case could solidly be made that this is his worst track. His best finish is 12th and that happens to also be his only top fifteen. His New Hampshire average finish is 24.6 and among the 23 tracks on the circuit it ranks as his 22nd best. Also at New Hampshire his top twenty percentage is only 29%. Compared to the 23 other tracks that ranks dead last. Recently at New Hampshire Paul Menard has shown improvement. In the last five races he’s earned all four of his top twenties. Last fall Menard started in 7th, had an 18th place average running position and finished 22nd. In July last year he finished 17th and had a 17th place average running position. Menard’s typical issue at New Hampshire is that he can’t hug the bottom of the track as well as others and he falls off over long runs. (Yahoo B Driver)

Martin Truex Jr. – Last fall at New Hampshire Martin Truex Jr. performed well. Through the first half of the event he arguably had he strongest car. In that portion of the race I would estimate his average running position was probably around 1.8. In the last third of the race his car dropped off and he performed nowhere near as well. When the checkered flag waved he finished 10th, had a 4th place average running position, led 98 laps and earned the 2nd best driver rating. In July 2013 at the Magic Mile he finished 16th and had a 17th place average running position. Nothing notable happened to him in that race, it’s just how he performed. Truex Jr. has been a fairly safe fantasy option throughout his career. His average finish is 14.7 and he’s only finished south of 22nd once. This season at the two tracks I consider the most similar he’s had results of 22nd (Phoenix) and 10th (Richmond). (Yahoo B Driver)
