20. Paul Menard
Paul Menard - Menard has finished inside the top-17 in three of his last six trips to Charlotte.
19. Aric Almirola
Aric Almirola – Double-A has shockingly had eight straight top-22 finishes.
18. Jamie McMurray
Jamie McMurray – McMurray has now cracked the top-20 in 13 of his last 14 races this season.
17. Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski – Keselowski has only had one top-10 finish in his last eight races. He finished 36th at Charlotte earlier in the year, and the fact that he will start this weekend back in 23rd isn’t very promising for the defending champ.
16. Ryan Newman
Ryan Newman – Since winning the Brickyard, Newman has finished inside the top-10 six times.
15. Juan Pablo Montoya
Juan Pablo Montoya – JPM has six consecutive top-20 finishes at Charlotte and will be a great sleeper for this weekend’s long race.
14. Joey Logano
Joey Logano – J-Lo was very disappointed in his 12th place start after qualifying and he may not have brought the best car with him to Charlotte. He should still crack the top-15, but a top-10 finish may be a bit of a reach for the #22 car.
13. Kurt Busch
Kurt Busch – Busch has been a road warrior in recent months, as he has cracked the top-nine in 10 of his last 15 races.
12. Martin Truex Jr.
Martin Truex Jr. – MTJ has finished inside the top-12 in three straight trips to Charlotte.
11. Clint Bowyer
Clint Bowyer – Bowyer won the last race at Charlotte and has now cracked the top-17 in six of his last seven races.
10. Denny Hamlin
Denny Hamlin – Hamlin has finished inside the top-10 at Charlotte in his last six trips.
9. Carl Edwards
Carl Edwards – Edwards has finished inside the top-five in five times of the last nine trips in Charlotte.
8. Greg Biffle
Greg Biffle – The Biff has finished inside the top-16 in his last 10 races this season, and considering he will start this week in third, he should have no problem extending that streak to 11 on Sunday night.
7. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. – Earnhardt Jr. will start this Sunday’s race in sixth place and he has been on quite a hot-streak as he has cracked the top-eight in three straight races.
6. Kasey Kahne
Kasey Kahne – Kahne finished second at Charlotte earlier in the year after leading 161 laps. He will start in fifth after a strong qualifying and will be pushing the top guys all day.
5. Matt Kenseth
Matt Kenseth – Kenseth has cracked the top-15 in nine consecutive appearances at Charlotte.
4. Kyle Busch
Kyle Busch – Busch had three straight top-five finishes at Charlotte before his 38th finish there earlier this year. He will start this Sunday in ninth and will be one of the safer fantasy options at CMS.
3. Kevin Harvick
Kevin Harvick – Harvick won the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte earlier in the year, despite only leading three total laps. He just missed out on the pole, but he will still get to start in second this Sunday.
2. Jeff Gordon
Jeff Gordon – Gordon has been driving like a man possessed recently, as he has cracked the top-16 in six straight races and has led a total of 127 laps. He will start on the pole this Sunday and fantasy fans should expect another strong showing from the Rainbow Warrior.
1. Jimmie Johnson
Jimmie Johnson – Johnson has six career wins in Charlotte. He will start this year in fourth and will be near the front of the pack all night long.
