PROS is an acronym for Projected Ranking Of Strength. What’s projected in this post is how good drivers were the last time they raced at Michigan (June 2018). It shows you what ten drivers were subjectively the strongest last race. In fantasy NASCAR you can’t just look at a drivers finish position and believe that’s […]
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to the Irish Hills of Michigan this weekend for the second stop at Michigan International Speedway. The first race here this season saw the Stewart-Haas teammates of Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch lead for most of the way before Clint Bowyer, another SHR guy, came in and got […]
David Ragan – Michigan hasn’t been a friendly track to David Ragan. Over the last four races at this 2.0 mile oval he’s finished 29th or worse. Earlier this year he had a tough race and finished 38th after crashing on lap 35 while he was battling for 26th. In the race he started 27th […]
Ryan Newman – At Michigan I don’t have very high expectations for Ryan Newman. Realistically I think a high-teens to low-twenties finish should be expected. This year at high-speed intermediate tracks he hasn’t performed well and at the two 2.0 mile ovals visited he’s finished 21st (Auto Club) and 22nd (Michigan). At Michigan in many […]
Aric Almirola – Aric Almirola will be a driver to watch at Michigan. He’s consistently performed well at intermediate tracks in 2018 and at this point in the season I think his team is really starting to click. This year at high-speed intermediate tracks minus Texas (crashed) he has a 12.6 average finish and an […]
Kevin Harvick – Kevin Harvick is a super-elite performer at high-speed intermediate tracks who’ll be tough to beat at Michigan. In 2018 on this track type minus Auto Club and Charlotte, he has 3 wins, a 2.1 average finish, a 3.6 average running position and has had a result in the top 5 every race. […]
