David Ragan – With another start under his belt with MWR at New Hampshire I think he should be a little more competitive. Earlier this year at the Magic Mile he started in 3rd and ran well for the first 60 laps but then he plummeted in the running order. Over the last 100 laps he typically ran between the mid-teens and the twenties. When the checkered flag waved he finished 18th and earned the 20th best driver rating. In his six New Hampshire races prior to joining MWR he had a 29.7 average finish and a 29.5 average running position.
Danica Patrick – New Hampshire has been an OK track for Danica Patrick. In the last three races she has a 21.7 average finish and a 22.0 average running position. In July she wasn’t very good. She started in 20th and for the first 100 laps she typically ran in the mid-twenties. In the middle portion of the race she ran in the low thirties. Over the final 100 laps you can just about draw a line from 34th place up to her eventual 24th place finish. Last September she had a great performance and was better than her 19th place result. She had legitimate top ten potential but with about 40 laps remaining she damaged her left front fender after contact with Ambrose which led to her falling back in the running order. In the event Patrick had a 15th place average running position, earned the 17th best driver rating and ran in the top fifteen in 62.4% percent of the laps completed. In July 2014 she had a 23rd place average running position and finished 22nd.
Justin Allgaier – Justin Allgaier has three races under his belt at New Hampshire. This July he came home with an asterisk mark 40th place finish. Performance wise he might’ve been around 20th place good. On lap 213 while he was racing around 22nd his car was smoking badly from damage which caused him to finish 17 laps down in 40th. Last September at New Hampshire Allgaier had a quiet afternoon. He finished 20th, had a 24th place average running position and earned the 26th best driver rating. In July 2014 Allgaier made his first start at New Hampshire. In the race he started in 25th, had a 27th place average running position and finished 37th after getting involved in an accident. This season in races at other shorter flat tracks he has results of 18th, 18th and 25th.
David Gilliland – You can’t expect too much out of David Gilliland but he has been an efficient performer given his tier. At New Hampshire since 2013 minus a fall 2013 accident he has a 22.5 average finish. In July he started deep in the field in 37th and drove home to a 21st place finish. In 2014 he had results of 24th and 27th. In June 2013 he had his best New Hampshire result and finished 18th.
