Hamlin fast yet againPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 73 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News According to Jayski.com, Denny Hamlin ranked third on the speed charts during Happy Hour practice at Michigan. Our View Hamlin has never won at MIS, but he finished third and 10th at the track last season. He also won last weekend's race at Pocono and leads the series with four victories in 2010. The No. 11 appears fast again, and fantasy owners should consider Hamlin among the favorites.

Harvick starting in a familiar spotPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 74 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Kevin Harvick qualified 30th or worse for the sixth time in 2010 after a 31st-place effort in qualifying at Michigan, according to NASCAR.com. Our View Harvick has finished 11th or better in his five previous starts from 30th or worse, and with 10 top 10s in 14 starts in 2010, fantasy owners shouldn't be scared off by a bad performance in qualifying. Ironically, Harvick's worst finish of the season came when he started on the pole at Martinsville.
Roush has work to doPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 74 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Roush Fenway Racing teammates, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth all qualified outside the top 15 for Sunday's race at Michigan, according to NASCAR.com. Our View The new FR9 engine didn't appear to help the Ford's troubles, at least not in qualifying anyway. All three drivers have exceptional records at MIS, but the Fords simply aren't as fast as the other manufacturers right now. Don't rule out top-10 performances from the "Roushcateers," but those fantasy owners expecting a win out of the organization are setting themselves up for disappointment.

Kahne's frustrations could continue at MISPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 75 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News According to MRN.com, Kasey Kahne has finished 21st or worse in four of his last six starts at Michigan International Raceway. Our View Kahne had four top-five finishes, including a win, in his first six starts at the track, but his last six starts have brought a reversal of fortunes. Mired 23rd in points and feuding with his teammate AJ Allmendinger after a wreck at Pocono, it is hard to imagine Kahne turning things around this season. His Chase hopes are in serious jeopardy.
Johnson's struggles quantifiedPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 76 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News According to NASCAR.com, Jimmie Johnson rnks 24th in points scored during the past six Cup races. Our View He has just won top five and two top-10 finishes during that stretch, along with a pair of DNFs. Johnson won three of the first five races of 2010 and still ranks sxith overall, but there is no doubt that he has been in a slump recently. To put it in better perspective, consider that Paul Menard and David Ragan are among the many drivers that have outperformed him during the last six races.
Top three in points on a tearPosted in Fantasy NASCAR by RickyBobby 76 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News According to NASCAR.com, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin are the only three drivers to accumulate more than 900 points during the past six races. Our View Helped by a series-best 35 bonues points, Busch leads the way with 1,024 points during that stretch. Harvick's 956 points are good enough for second best with Hamlin ranking third with 954 points in the past six events. Busch and Hamlin also lead the series with two wins and four top-five finishes in their last six starts. It is no surprise that these same three drivers have worked their way into the top three in the standings.

The News Jack Roush blames NASCAR's ban on testing for the struggles of his organization the past two years, according to NASCAR.com. Our View "We've got third-party vendors, not Ford and not Roush Fenway, that were engaged in our data analysis and in our simulations, and quite frankly we haven't got the results this year that we had expected," Jack Roush said.
