Daniel Suarez – Daniel Suarez should be taken very seriously at New Hampshire. He’s proven himself to be a capable shorter flat track driver. On Sunday I would look for him to be a low double digits driver who has a great chance to finish in the top ten. This summer at New Hampshire, Suarez had a good race and closed out strong. When the checkered flag waved he finished 6th. Additionally in the race he earned the 12th best driver rating and had a 15th place average running position. Richmond is a similar shorter flat track and a few weeks ago at that venue Suarez finished 7th. (Yahoo C Driver)

Jamie McMurray – Jamie McMurray is a capable shorter flat track driver and on Sunday I would look for him to challenge for a top ten. This weekend I think he has some quality out of sync potential because he’s entering the weekend with back to back New Hampshire high-teen finishes. This summer at New Hampshire he started 4th, finished 17th, had a 12th place average running position and earned the 13th best driver rating. At the end of Stage #1 he finished 4th, and at the end of Stage #2 he finished just outside the top ten. Late in the race he just fell back following a late restart. With 20 laps to go he was in 12th. Last fall he didn’t have a bad race but finished 19th. In that race don’t overlook his 10th place average running position and 12th best driver rating. He was a top five contender but late in the race he had a massive free-fall in the running order. In July 2016 he ran well. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 6th, earned the 11th best driver rating and had a 12th place average running position. (Yahoo B Driver)

Ryan Blaney – Ryan Blaney shouldn’t be overlooked at New Hampshire. In all four of his starts he’s been respectable, “performance wise.” He didn’t finish well this summer but on Sunday I would look for him to challenge for a top ten. This summer he finished 19th but I’ll note he was better than his result. His average running position was 12th and he earned the 14th best driver rating. He didn’t close out the race strong and I think something happened to him during a late pit cycle because it dropped him in the running order. Last fall he was solid finishing 12th and having a 15th place average running position. In July 2016 when the race reached its conclusion he finished 11th and had a 13th place average running position. In a summer 2015 pre-rookie start he finished a misleading 23rd. In that race he showed top ten potential but he had to make an unexpected pit stop for a loose wheel and as he was leaving he got a speeding penalty. (Yahoo B Driver)
