Clint Bowyer – Clint Bowyer is a solid performer at Pocono. Prior to his days of being in inferior equipment he was typically around an 8th to 15th place performer. Between 2012 and 2015 he finished between 4th and 15th in 7 of the 8 races. On Sunday at Pocono I would look for Bowyer to likely be around 10th place good. Performance wise that’s how he’s typically stacked up against the competition this year. Last year at Pocono I wouldn’t read into his stats any and just note he finished 18th and 26th for the season. In August 2015 in his last race in competitive equipment he showed potential and was likely low-teens good but benefited from how the end of the race played when fuel entered the equation. In that race he finished 8th and had a 15th place average running position. (Yahoo B Driver)

Ryan Blaney – Ryan Blaney should be strong at Pocono. His team is performing well week in and week out and I don’t see Pocono being an exception. Last year during his rookie season he ran well in both Pocono races. Last summer Blaney finished 11th, had a 14th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating. Last spring when he made his Pocono debut he ran well. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 10th, earned the 11th best driver rating, had a 15th place average running position and ran 70.6% percent of the laps inside the top fifteen. In the Truck Series at Pocono Blaney raced his way to victory lane in 2013. (Yahoo B Driver)

Dale Earnhardt Jr. – Pocono is a great track for Dale Earnhardt Jr. He’s had lots of on track performance struggles this season but at Pocono he should be viewed as a solid sleeper option. At the “Tricky Triangle” Earnhardt Jr. has performed at an elite level. Since 2013 he’s only once finished outside of the top 5. Last spring in his most recent race he finished runner-up. Additionally in the race he earned the 4th best driver rating and had a 7th place average running position. In August 2015 he didn’t run well but escaped with a 4th place finish largely because of pit strategy. In that race it should be noted he got a speeding penalty and spun. In June 2015 he had a great car but walked away with a misleading 11th place finish. The source of his asterisk mark finish can be traced to when he had contact during a restart with 35 laps to go. Before he had his issue he was running in the top five but his problem dropped him back into the 20’s. In 2014 at Pocono he pulled out the broom and won both races. In 2013 he swept the top five with results of 3rd and 5th. (Yahoo A Driver)
