Kasey Kahne – Kasey Kahne has been pretty successful at Dover recently. Currently at the Monster Mile he has three straight top tens, the only driver with a longer active top ten streak is Kyle Larson. Over these three races he has a 4.7 average finish, the 11th best driver rating and a 12.3 average running position. This spring Kahne ran well and dodged the carnage. When the checkered flag waved he finished 4th, earned the 10th best driver rating and had a 14th place average running position. Performance wise if attrition didn’t become a big factor at the end he likely would’ve finished around 12th. In 2015 things went his way and he had a good year. Between the two events he tied Aric Almirola for scoring the second most points and had a 5.0 average finish. Last fall he had a pretty good car. He finished 6th, had a 10th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating. He had a good chance to finish better than his result but during the lap 232 caution his team used poor pit strategy and only took two tires which led to him falling back in the running order from the top five back to the mid-teens. In spring 2015 he had a good performance. He started 25th, had a 13th place average running position and finished 4th. Performance wise he was probably around 10th place good but he benefited from the late attrition and being on fresh tires at the end. In fall 2014 Kahne probably had about a 7th to 12th place car but when the checkered flag waved he finished 20th. His lack luster result can be traced to him having a loose wheel and pitting early around lap 150. Shortly after that a caution came out and it cemented him two laps down back around 30th.

Kurt Busch – Kurt Busch won at Dover in fall 2011 but it hasn’t been a great track for him. Since his victory he’s only finished in the top ten once, fortunately that came in this springs race when he finished 5th. In his career at Dover he’s only finished in the top ten 28% percent of the time. This spring Busch had a strong car and was a consistent front runner. When the checkered flag waved he finished 5th, earned the 5th best driver rating and had a 7th place average running position. In 2015 at Dover he ran well and showed potential in both races but finished poorly twice. Last fall it looked like he had top 3 potential but he had some sort of issue with his left front that made him uncompetitive and caused him to make extra pit stops. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 17th, had a 7th place average running position and earned the 7th best driver rating. In Spring 2015 his race wasn’t incident free and he walked away with a misleading 31st place finish. The reason for his poor result can be traced to his involvement in a late wreck with Denny Hamlin. At the time of the incident he was running in the top ten. (Yahoo A Driver)
