Carl Edwards- Edwards has been average to his standards this year and last, but he has been magnificent at MIS. He has scored the most points at MIS the last 3-10 races there. Out of 11 races he has ten top-10s, seven top-5s, and two wins. His average finish is 6.1. He has completed every lap possible since he has started racing there. He also has lead in eight of the eleven races that he has been in there. Should be interesting to see how well he does with the new Ford engine.
Jimmie Johnson- JJ is due at this track for a win. He dominated both races there last year as he led at least 65% of each race there, but he had some bad luck at the end with fuel mileage being a factor at the end of each race.
Take a look at: Martin (5 wins), Gordon (most points last two races), and Biffle (Roush car, two wins)
Matt Kenseth- The Roush cars always show up at MIS. Kenseth has 13 top-10s, nine top-5s, and two wins in 21 races.
Kevin Harvick- Harvick has made big strides this year at tracks he doesn't normally run well at. He finished 2nd at MISs sister track California.
Clint Bowyer- Like Harvick, Bowyer has been running very well at tracks he normally doesn't run well at. Bowyer had two top-10s last year at MIS.
Joey Logano- Logano finished 7th the last race at MIS and finished 5th at California. I believe he will definitely be even more motivated to run well from what happened last week at Pocono.
Take a look at: Earnhardt, Jr. (finished 12th or better in six out of last eight races there including a win)
Sam Hornish- Last race at MIS he finished 5th. Led some laps and had a nice run last week at Pocono. If not for the Harvick/Logano incident he would have finished 4th.
Casey Mears- Finished 6th at last race at MIS. He has three top-10s in fourteen races there. He is also driving the car that won last year there.
Take a look at: Paul Menard
