Austin Dillon – Austin Dillon has been pretty solid at Chicagoland over his three starts. Last year he was a low double digits performer. In the race he finished 14th, had a 14th place average running position and earned the 13th best driver rating. In 2015 at the Windy City he finished dead last in 43rd. Performance wise it was clear he had top ten potential. On lap 130 shortly after a restart he had a flat tire and got into the wall hard. Prior to that he was running in 10th. In 2014 when he made his Chicagoland debut he was a mid-teens driver. In that race he started 15th, had a 15th place average running position, finished 16th and earned the 16th best driver rating. This year at 1.5 mile tracks outside of Charlotte where he won he hasn’t run well and his next best finish is 16th. On Sunday I would look for him to be a mid-teens driver who might be able to finish marginally better than that. (Yahoo B Driver)

Trevor Bayne – At Chicagoland I would likely look for Bayne to be a mid to high-teens driver. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s been a respectable performer. Outside of Kentucky where he wrecked all of his finishes are between 10th to 16th. Keep in mind though that I think his level of performance has dropped off some as the season has progressed and all of those 1.5 mile tracks visited except Kentucky were visited prior to June. At Chicagoland Bayne has a 23.5 average finish and has had a result in the twenties in all four of his events. Last year Bayne had a quiet race. He finished 23rd and had a 24th place average running position. In 2015 he didn’t run well at all. He finished 28th, earned the 28th best driver rating and had a 27th place average running position. In his other two Chicagoland starts which were in 2012 and 2011 he had results of 20th and 23rd. (Yahoo B Driver)

Ty Dillon – This year at high-speed intermediate tracks Ty Dillon has been a high-teens to low-twenties performer. On Sunday I would look for him to finish within that range. For the season at high-speed intermediate tracks minus Charlotte and Kentucky he has a 17.9 average finish. Last year at Chicagoland Ty Dillon drove the #7 and finished 27th. Since that wasn’t a competitive situation I wouldn’t read into that too much when evaluating his fantasy value. (Yahoo C Driver)
