Jamie McMurray – Jamie McMurray should be counted on for a strong finish at Michigan. He has three straight top tens and since 2014 he has a 10.1 average finish, and the 12th best driver rating. Over his current three race top ten streak his average finish is 7.3. This spring he had a good race. He finished 5th, earned the 8th best driver rating and had a 13th place average running position. In 2016 he was one of six drivers who swept the top ten. Last August McMurray had a solid showing. He finished 8th, earned the 11th best driver rating and had a 13th place average running position. In spring 2016 he finished well in the first race with the “Lowest Down Force Package” and came home with a 9th place result. This year at high-speed intermediate tracks McMurray has quietly ranked as one of the best. Over the last five races on this sub-track type he has a 7.8 average finish and a 10.8 average running position. (Yahoo B Driver)

Clint Bowyer – Clint Bowyer should have a strong showing at Michigan and have some out of sync potential. His last three results of 23rd or worse should help keep him below the radar and cause others to avoid him. Historically MIS has been one of his best tracks. This spring Bowyer ran well but finished a misleading 26th. Performance wise he was top ten good but with 14 laps to go while he was running in 7th he got into the wall hard. Additionally from the race it should be noted he started 3rd, had an 8th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating. In the three races prior to that I wouldn’t even bother to study what happened because he wasn’t in a competitive situation. In the 9 races prior to his cold streak he had 9 straight top tens.

Joey Logano – Michigan has been a place of great success for Logano, but his current slump makes it hard to pick him with confidence. At Michigan since 2013 he’s finished in the top ten every race. Over the three combined Michigan races in the “Lowest Down Force” era Logano has led the most laps (162), has a 4.7 average finish, a 6.7 average running position and the 3rd best driver rating. This spring Logano finished 3rd, earned the 7th best driver rating and had a 10th place average running position. At the end of the race he was on fresh tires so he was able to rally. Performance wise I thought he was really low double digits good . Last August he started on the pole but was never really a factor. When the checkered flag waved he finished 10th, had an 8th place average running position and earned the 7th best driver rating. In spring 2016 he put on a display of domination. In that event he started on the pole, earned a near perfect driver rating, finished first and led 138 laps. Nobody had anything for him in the race. In the six Michigan races prior to that he finished in the top 9. (Yahoo A Driver)
