Kevin Harvick – Kevin Harvick has been a super elite performer at New Hampshire. He’s the most recent winner and in 4 of the last 5 races he’s finished in the top 4. Over that five race stretch he has the best driver rating, best average running position (4.6), led the most laps (387) and has a misleading 6.4 average finish. Last fall at New Hampshire Harvick had a fast car and raced his way to victory lane following a late restart. Additionally from the race it should be noted he earned the 4th best driver rating and had a 6th place average running position. In summer 2016 he had a great car that ranked as one of the best but his pit crew held him back consistently throughout the event always costing him a handful of positions. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 4th and earned the 4th best driver rating. In fall 2015 Kevin Harvick had the best car but finished 21st after running out of gas while leading with 3 laps to go. From that race it should be noted he led 216 laps, earned the best driver rating and had a 2nd place average running position. In the two New Hampshire races prior to that he had back to back 3rd place finishes. (Yahoo A Driver)

Kyle Busch – Kyle Busch will be one of the favorites to win at New Hampshire. Since 2013 he’s only once finished outside of the top 8 and that was a misleading result. Last year at New Hampshire he was one of the best drivers between the combined events. In fall 2016 Busch had a strong showing. When the checkered flag waved he finished 3rd, earned the 3rd best driver rating and had a 5th place average running position. Last July Kyle Busch had a great car. In the race he earned the best driver rating, had a 2nd place average running position, led the most laps (133) and finished 8th. I will note that’s a misleading result. Strength wise he was top 3 good but he got shuffled back late. In fall 2015 Kyle Busch had a good car and was easily top ten strong but a flat tire on lap 160 while running in 9th sent him to the garage and led to his misleading 37th place result. In 4 of the 5 New Hampshire races prior to that he finished in the top two. In July 2015 Kyle Busch was top five good but caught a lucky break with a timely caution and then raced his way to victory lane. Additionally in that race he earned the best driver rating and had a 3rd place average running position. (Yahoo A Driver)

Martin Truex Jr. – Martin Truex Jr. will be a strong performer at New Hampshire. Last year at “The Magic Mile” nobody was better than him despite what his results show. Between the combined races he earned the 3rd best driver rating, had a 3rd place average running position, led the most laps and had a misleading 11.5 average finish. Last fall Truex Jr. had a great car but some poor restarts near the end hurt him. When the checkered flag waved he finished 7th, earned the best driver rating, had a 2nd place average running position and led a race high 141 laps. Last July Truex Jr. finished a very misleading 16th. Performance wise I would argue he likely had the best car but a broken shifter ruined his afternoon. Prior to his shifter breaking he was the race leader. In total he paced the field for 123 laps. In the five New Hampshire races prior to that he finished between 8th and 12th. His average result over that stretch was 10.8. (Yahoo A Driver)
