Jamie McMurray – Jamie McMurray is a very solid fantasy NASCAR option at Chicagoland. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s been a very proficient performer. Over the six combined races at tracks of this length he has an 8.7 average result, has scored the 4th most points and has finished in the top 12 every race. Over the last three combined races at Chicagoland, McMurray has a 12.0 average finish, an 11.0 average running position and the 13th best driver rating. Last year at Chicagoland the number you need to know about him is 11. He finished 11th, had an 11th place average running position and earned the 11th best driver rating. In 2015 he was essentially a mid-teens driver. When the checkered flag waved he finished 16th and had a 16th place average running position. In 2014 McMurray had a great car that I would argue was one of the best. He ran the high-line and got tremendous runs down the straightaway. In the race it should be noted he finished 9th, had a 6th place average running position, earned the 4th best driver rating and led 32 laps. (Yahoo B Driver)

Joey Logano – Joey Logano should have a respectable showing at Chicagoland. I would look for him to be a low double digits driver who’ll compete for a top ten. Kentucky is the last 1.5 track visited and he finished 8th there. At Chicagoland Joey Logano has been a strong competitor. In 4 of the last 5 races he’s finished in the top ten, in the one race he didn’t he had engine problems. Over the last three combined races among drivers who competed in every event he has the best average finish (4.0) and the 4th best average running position (7.7). Last year Logano had a great car and finished runner-up. Additionally in the race he earned the 5th best driver rating and had a 6th place average running position. I will note if there wasn’t a late caution which helped him he probably would’ve finished 5th. In 2015 he ran well throughout the event. In the race he earned the 5th best driver rating, had a 5th place average running position and finished 6th. In 2014 he started deep in the field but rallied to finish 4th. (Yahoo A Driver)

Clint Bowyer – Clint Bowyer should run well at Chicagoland. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s run well. Over the six combined races at tracks of this length he’s scored the 10th most points, has an 11.3 average finish and has had a result in the top 14 every race. On Sunday I would look for him to be a low double digits driver who’ll challenge for a top ten. At Chicagoland he hasn’t had recent success having three straight results of 19th or worse. Historically he’s been pretty good here and he’s proven he has the talent to come home with a good finish. In 7 of his first 8 Chicagoland races he finished in the top ten. (Yahoo B Driver)
