Matt DiBenedetto – Don’t overlook DiBenedetto at Atlanta. He doesn’t have a single good result here on his resume, but in his new ride that doesn’t matter. In the #21 he’s been clicking off good results and you have to like how well he’s performed at intermediate tracks visited. In 2020 on this track type, his 11.8 average finish is tied for the 2nd best. In his previous rides at Atlanta, DiBenedetto has four starts under his belt and all of his results are between 26th to 31st. Don’t let those finishes scare you away. On Sunday, look for DiBenedetto to be a low double-digit to mid-teens performer.

Tyler Reddick – Tyler Reddick should be high on your radar at Atlanta. This year at intermediate tracks he’s only finished outside the top 15 once and that was a misleading result. Over the combined events his 12th place average finish ranks as the 9th best. Over the last five intermediate track races he’s finished between 7th to 14th. Between Auto Club and Darlington, the two high tire-wear venues visited his average finish is 10.3. Last year in the lower series at Atlanta he finished 5th. On Sunday, I’m going to project Reddick as a mid to high-teens driver who has upside.
Cole Custer – Cole Custer has been pretty disappointing this season in the #41. I expected a lot more of out of him and he’s done pretty much so nothing. At intermediate track visited this year the core of his results are around the high-teens. In 2020 over the combined events on this track type minus Darlington #2 where he had trouble is 17.8. Last year in the lower series at Atlanta, Custer ran well and finished 2nd. On Sunday, I’m going to view Custer as a high-teens driver.
