Jamie McMurray Fantasy Racing

Jamie McMurray – Jamie McMurray has been a strong performer at 1.5 mile tracks this season. On Sunday I would look for him to be a low double digits driver who’ll compete for a top ten. This year at 1.5 mile tracks minus Kansas #2 McMurray has an 8.4 average finish, a 10.5 average running position and has finished in the top 12 every race. At Kansas, the one race where he had problems he was easily top ten good until he was caught up in a late wreck. With his strong body of work at 1.5 mile tracks this year it’s hard to see him being a fantasy let down. This spring at Texas, McMurray ran well. He finished 7th, had a 10th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating. (Yahoo B Driver)

Daniel Suarez – Don’t overlook Daniel Daniel at Texas. I expect him to run extremely well and compete for a top ten. His team is running extremely well at the moment and in the Playoffs at these tracks he’s been competitive. Kansas is the last 1.5 mile track visited and he was a legitimate top five contender until he was caught up in a late wreck. At the two 1.5 mile tracks visited prior to that he had results of 6th and 12th. This spring at Texas there was nothing special about his performance. He finished 19th, had a 21st place average running position and earned the 22nd best driver rating. Don’t let that scare you away. He’s a much better driver now, and his team is performing at a much higher level at this point in the season. (Yahoo C Driver)

Joey Logano – If you feel like rolling the dice consider Joey Logano. This spring he had a very strong showing. He finished 3rd, earned the 7th best driver rating and had an 8th place average running position. I will note he did use some pit strategy late so his average running position is pretty reflective of his performance. My concerns about Logano revolve around his last two races at 1.5 mile tracks. He finished 21st at Kansas, and 26th at Charlotte. At Texas I think there’s better options than Logano that are safer. On Sunday I would play it safe and think of him as a mid-teens driver, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he finishes in the top ten. (Yahoo A Driver)
