David Ragan – In 3 of the last 4 Martinsville races David Ragan has finished between 21st and 25th. On Sunday if you pick him I would look for him to likely be a low to mid-twenties driver. This spring Ragan finished 24th and had a 28th place average running position. Last fall Ragan finished a misleading 37th after he had problems under his hood around lap 60 while running in 26th that caused him to go to the garage area. In the two Martinsville races prior to that he finished in the twenties with results of 21st and 25th. (Yahoo C Driver)

Michael McDowell – Over the last three Martinsville races Michael McDowell has a 22.7 average finish and a 24.7 average running position. If you pick him you should likely expect a low to mid-twenties performance. This spring he didn’t run well. He finished 26th and had a 28th place average running position. Last year he had a better season and had results of 18th and 24th. (Yahoo C Driver)

Cole Whitt – Among low tier options, Cole Whitt isn’t that bad of an option. In 4 of his last 5 starts he’s finished between 18th and 22nd. I bet you would be happy with that level of production from a driver of his tier. This spring he finished 21st. (Yahoo C Driver)

Landon Cassill – At Martinsville in the last three races Cassill’s finished between 27th and 29th. In the three previous to that he finished between 19th and 21st. To set his baseline fantasy value I say think of him as a mid-twenties driver and then hope for lots of attrition. This spring Cassill finished 27th. Last year he had results of 28th and 29th.

Matt DiBenedetto – Matt DiBenedetto has five starts under his belt at Martinsville and this spring he wrecked. In his four races prior to that he finished 5 or more laps down every race and had a result between 29th and 32nd. If he has an incident free race I would look for him to finish somewhere around that range. (Yahoo C Driver)[/restrict]
