Kasey Kahne -Kasey Kahne should be on your fantasy NASCAR radar at Homestead. I’ve really liked the way he’s performed at 1.5 mile tracks in the Chase. In the playoffs he’s one of just three drivers who have finished in the top ten every race. The other two drivers are Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth. His average finish over these four events is 7.0. At Homestead Kahne has been a solid performer. In 4 of the last 6 races he’s finished in the top 13. Additionally over those races he has a 13.0 average finish, 14.3 average running positoin and the 12th best driver rating. Last year he didn’t have the greatest performance but it should be noted his afternoon wasn’t incident free. On lap 40 while he was running in the mid-teens he had a flat tire and got into the wall. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 19th and had a 26th place average running position. In 2014 Kahne had a solid showing. He finished 12th, had an 11th place average running position and earned the 11th best driver rating. In 2013 Kahne had an OK performance and finished right where he should’ve. In the race he started 13th, finished 13th, earned the 12th best driver rating and had a 16th place average running position. His average running position is slightly skewed because with about 100 laps to go he made an unscheduled pit stop that dropped him down a lap. Before he made his unexpected pit stop he was running right around 14th. In 2012 he finished 21st but that poor result can be attributed to pit strategy. In that race he had a 10th place average running position. In the two Homestead races prior to that he had results of 6th and 7th. (Yahoo B Driver)

Alex Bowman – Alex Bowman should have a strong showing at Homestead. This year at high-speed intermediate tracks he’s consistently been a top ten threat, even when he doesn’t finish well. In his incident free races at 1.5 mile tracks in the Chase he’s come home with results of 7th (Kansas), 10th (Chicagoland) and 13th (Texas). At Homestead I think he’s capable of having a successful afternoon and once again challenge for a top ten. (Yahoo C Driver)

Austin Dillon – Austin Dillon should have a strong showing at Homestead. This year 1.5 mile tracks have been his “bread and butter.” Performance wise at these venues he’s typically been high-single digits to low-double digits good. Texas is similar to Homestead and at that venue he ran very well. He started on the pole and challenged for a top five late before being wrecked. What also makes that race important is that the same tire will be used. Last fall he was a solid mid-teens performer. In the race he finished 14th, earned the 14th best driver rating and had a 15th place average running position. In 2014 when he made his Homestead debut he didn’t have a strong showing. He finished 25th, had a 19th place average running position and earned the 21st best driver rating. (Yahoo B Driver)
