Patrick may have shocked the world by qualifying to start in fourth, but she won’t be in the front of the pack for long. Consider Patrick a long shot to even crack the top-20 this weekend.

Ambrose has quietly racked up six top-20 finishes in the last seven races. The veteran will start in ninth this weekend and should have another underrated fantasy performance this Sunday.

After a strong start, Stewart has cooled off again. The 2011 Champion has failed to cracked the top-19 in the last three races and he is starting to blend in with the rest of the pack.

Junior has only two top-10 appearances at Charlotte in his last 10 races. He may be having a resurgent season, but he will be a risky pick this week with his lack of success on this track.

12. Jeff Gordon

Gordon is coming off a win at Kansas City, which was his fourth top-seven appearance in the last five races. Gordon will have a tough time making up ground this Sunday, though, seeing as he is starting back in 27th.

Biffle struggled here last year, as he didn’t finish inside the top-15 in both races in Charlotte. Before last year, though, Biff has five straight top-15 finishes at CMS.

Edwards has five straight top-11 finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He also has an average finish of 11.03 here and the veteran will be a pretty safe bet this Sunday.

In the last seven races alone, Logano has two victories and two fourth-place finishes. J-Lo will be worth reaching for this week considering his current hot-streak.

Keselowski won the fall race in Charlotte, and while he hasn’t won yet this season, he is due to grab a checkered flag. Keselowski will be a nice consolation prize after the first couple drivers come off the board.

3. Kasey Kahne

Johnson won this race three times in a row between 2003-05, but he hasn’t visited the winner’s circle in the eight races since then. Luckily, he will get to start this year on the pole and he doesn’t relinquish the lead too often.
