Danica Patrick – Danica Patrick hasn’t been that bad of a performer at New Hampshire. Over the last five races minus fall 2015 when she was caught up in an accident she has an 18.8 average finish and a 21.3 average running position. Last year Patrick had a solid season by her standards having finished in the teen’s twice. Last fall the number you need to know about her is 18. She finished 18th, had an 18th place average running position and earned the 18th best driver rating. Last summer she was a driver who dodged the carnage at the end and escaped with a very respectable 14th place finish. That said don’t overlook her 24th place average running position and 24th best driver rating. In fall 2015 she ran well but finished a misleading 40th. Performance wise I thought she clearly had teens potential. Unfortunately her race wasn’t incident free. On lap 204 while she was running in 12th she had contact with Newman which sent her into the wall hard. In July 2015 she didn’t run well and when the race reached its conclusion she finished 24th.

Michael McDowell – Michael McDowell has an absurdly bad New Hampshire track record. Over 13 races his average finish is 37.3. I wouldn’t read into that much because for many of those he was in start and park equipment. In 9 of his first 10 races his race was cut short by either an engine failure, vibration, rear gear or brake problems. In 8 of those races he never competed 100 laps so that should tell you something. Last fall at New Hampshire Michael McDowell had his best New Hampshire race and finished 26th. Performance wise he was slightly better than his result because with 35 laps to go while he was running in low-twenties he spun. In summer 2016 he had electrical problems early so you can void that result. This year at similar tracks McDowell has results of 24th (Phoenix) and 29th (Richmond). Performance wise look for him to finish in the mid-twenties as his base line fantasy value. (Yahoo C Driver)

David Ragan – Nothing good will come from picking David Ragan. It’s a bad track for him and probably a high-twenties finish is what should be expected if you pick him. His overall average finish is 26.8 and since 2012 he’s only had three results of 25th or better. Last year at “The Magic Mile” he had results of 32nd and 30th for the season. In both races he wasn’t remotely competitive. (Yahoo C Driver)

Landon Cassill – Nothing good with come from picking Landon Cassill at New Hampshire. His average finish is 31.3 and his all-time best result in 13 races is 25th. In the last four New Hampshire races he’s finished 29th or worse. This weekend at New Hampshire I would set his base line fantasy value as being mid-twenties good and when you look at his track record you’ll see that I’m probably being generous. Last year at “The Magic Mile” he finished 28th and 29th. (Yahoo C Driver)
