Dominant run turns bad for Truex 09-25-2016
Martin Truex
Martin Truex Jr. had a dominant car for most of the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but he was shuffled out of the lead just before the checkers and ultimately finished seventh. Truex led the most laps at 141 and netted NASCAR's top Driver Rating. He remained one of the top scorers in most fantasy games and outperformed a substantial salary cap. Dover International Speedway is another solid track for him, so he should maintain his position in keeper leagues.
Carl Edwards overcomes NJ mistake for 6th 09-25-2016
Carl Edwards
Carl Edwards received a penalty for a commitment line infraction late in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire with about 35 laps remaining. He overcame the penalty to finish sixth. Edwards restarted 20th on lap 268 of 300. He got the benefit of two more cautions in the final 15 laps that allowed him to close up on the leaders. He ended the day 10th in the standings with a 16-point cushion over the bubble. Several drivers are within a few points of one another in the range and that is going to make for some interesting scenarios in Dover.
Kurt Busch gets 1st top-5 in 10 weeks 09-25-2016
Kurt Busch
Kurt Busch finished fifth in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which was his first top-five finish in the past 10 races. In the nine races between his fourth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway and this fifth-place effort, Busch scored only two top-10s and had an average result of 18th. Busch's solid run elevated him to 11th in the standings with a 15-point cushion over Jamie McMurray and Austin Dillon who are tied for 13th. A top-15 at Dover International Speedway will allow Busch to advance, so long as one of the drivers outside the top 12 does not win.
4th-place Brad Keselowski safe in Dover 09-25-2016
Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski posted a fourth-place finish in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to give him a 35-point cushion over the bubble. All he needs at Dover International Speedway is to stay out of trouble and he will advance to round two of the Chase. This is Keselowski's sixth top-five in the past eight races. He also has a ninth in that span of events and the only time he failed to finish in the top-10 was at Bristol Motor Speedway when he suffered crash damage. Keselowski will stay out of trouble at Dover and will be one of the top fantasy values.
Kyle Busch finishes 3rd at New Hampshire 09-25-2016
Kyle Busch
Kyle Busch finished third in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after starting 12th. His solid run has him seeded fourth in the standings entering next week's round one finale at Dover International Speedway. Busch was not flashy during the afternoon, but this is the type of performance that got him to the finale two years ago. He led only three laps at New Hampshire, but posted 39 fast trips around the track to earn major points for fantasy owners.
Kenseth loses 1 spot to 2nd on late restart 09-25-2016
Matt Kenseth
Matt Kenseth led 105 of 300 laps in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but got passed by Kevin Harvick with eight laps remaining. He finished second after starting eighth. This has been a good track for Kenseth in recent years and so has Dover International Speedway. The No. 20 driver has now finished first or second in his last three New Hampshire races and with two more short, flat track races in the Chase, he has a good opportunity to advance to the finale.

Kevin Harvick

This was Harvick's 11th victory in his 100th start with Stewart-Haas Racing and it gives the team an automatic advance to the second round of the Chase. This is also his eighth Chase victory, tying him for second with Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. Harvick spent most of the day in the top 10, but only led the eight laps at the end.
