2020 New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Foxwoods Resort Casino 301

The series gets to take a small break as they don’t have to run again until the first weekend in August. This is a welcome weekend off so the teams can all go home and visit their families before getting back to work next week and getting ready for the next race.

FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO 301

The series will head to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the running of the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. This is a slightly longer than one-mile track with minimal banking in the corners. A far cry from the mile and a half tracks the series has been running on for the past couple of races. The 301 refers to the number of laps and not mileage in this race. The mileage is close to 318.5 miles.

Kevin Harvick: I’m sticking with Kevin to win once again this week. He just seems to be a little more consistent than the rest of the drivers in the field right now. He won the last two races run here and three of the last five. If you look at the stats from those five races he didn’t lead a lot of laps, but he lead the most important one.

Martin Truex Jr.: Although still looking for his first win at this track, Martin has been better than even Harvick over the past six races even though he hasn’t come away with a victory. In those six races he has five top seven finishes and has lead over one-hundred laps in four of those races and around six-hundred laps altogether. He’s going to be competition for Kevin once again this week.

Denny Hamlin: Denny won the July race here in 2017 and finished second in this race last season. He is another driver who seems to be on the top of his game this year with five wins in the books and he usually runs well on the flatter tracks like New Hampshire. I think it is going to be a three way battle for the win this week.

Kyle Busch: Kyle has lead laps in each of his last six starts at this track and has a first, second, and third place finish in that stretch. They haven’t had quite what they need to win one of these races yet, but with the couple of extra days they might be able to figure out what little bit more they need. They can breakout at anytime.

Matt Kenseth: Matt had a great run at Indy early this season and he runs very well at New Hampshire, another flatter track. In face, in his last six starts at this track, Matt has won twice, and finished in the top four five times. He is my dark horse once again this week and might pull off a small upset.

Ryan Newman: Ryan has good credentials at this track too. He has three wins, and twenty top ten finishes in his thirty-four career starts here. That includes a seventh place finish last season in his first year with Roush/Fenway Racing. I think he can run well again this week and might be someone to put on your roster if you are looking to save some starts for some of the other drivers.

Ryan Blaney: Ryan has only run seven races here in his young career and finished in the top twenty in the last six and in the top ten in the last three races. He had a little blip last week at Kansas slowing down his momentum a little bit, but he could get that all back once again this coming weekend. I’m not quite sure what to do with him this week, but will probably save him for later in the season.

Brad Keselowski: Brad has one win at this track. He doesn’t seem to get a lot of great finishes here, but he doesn’t have terrible finishes either. In fact, he has one of the best average finishes at this track of all the active drivers. He might be another driver to use instead of my top three and hope something happens to take them out of contention while Brad comes away with another top five finish.

The C group is a tough call on the short flatter tracks. I think Bell might be the best of the bunch at New Hampshire.

I am in a few pools so the groups are different because of Kenseth. Would you take Kenseth in group C over Bell if you could?

What do you think of Bubba, McDowell, and Ty Dillon as C drivers tomorrow? Debating between which one to start. Thanks!

Bubba’s been running pretty well lately. If he can stay out of wrecks he is your best bet.
