  • Top 5 And 5 To Watch: Indianapolis

    07/23/2009
    By Bill MarxSporting News NASCAR Wire Service Here’s a look at the top five in points and five drivers to watch in Sunday’s Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. All statistical references are for Sprint Cup races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway unless otherwise indicated. Driver rating is based on the past four races at the track. 1. Tony Stewart, 111.2 driver rating. The past four Brickyards have been won by Stewart and Jimmie Johnson in alternating years. Stewart had his worst finish last year, 23rd, but it is meaningless because of the tire debacle. Expect Stewart to be strong again. Besides his two wins, he has four other top 10s.  2. Jeff Gordon, 97.5. Gordon holds the record with four wins, his last in 2005. He has 12 top 10s in 15 races. The top 10 he needs Sunday is a win—and the 10 bonus points that go with it for the Chase. Gordon has one win this year. 3. Jimmie Johnson, 99.1. Johnson has a wacky record at the Brickyard. In his past five races, he has two wins and three DNFs. His average finish at Indy is 20.3, his worst among active tracks (his career low among Cup tracks is 23.2 in five races at Rockingham). 4. Kurt Busch, 70.1. Busch hasn’t had a top 10 at the Brickyard since 2004, which capped three top 10s in is first four starts. Busch leads 13th-place Greg Biffle by 241 points, so another middling finish won’t hurt Busch in the standings. 5. Denny Hamlin, 101.2. Hamlin’s driver rating is second to Stewart’s, even though he has only three starts. Hamlin finished third last year; he finished 10th and 22nd in his other starts. Hamlin led 26 laps last year, second to Johnson’s 71. 5 to watch 9. Juan Pablo Montoya, 87.2. Montoya started second and finished second as a rookie in 2007. He crashed last year and finished 39th. He is on a roll this year, and tires permitting, he should be able to post a strong finish and solidify his standing in the top 12. He leads Biffle by 36 points. 10. Kyle Busch, 98.9. Busch has the goods to win Sunday. He also has the “bads” to post another poor finish and fall out of the top 12—he has one top 10 in the past two months. His 15th-place finish last year was his first outside the top 10 in four races. He leads Biffle by 13 points. 11. Mark Martin, 98.8. Martin has the best average finish the past four years at 7.3. He hasn’t led a lap, but only Stewart has turned more laps in the top 15. A win would be sweet but not at the expense of a top-10 finish—in other words, no gambling. Martin has been all over the map when it comes to finishes this year. Here is how he followed his first three wins of the season: 43rd, 17th, 35th. He is coming off his fourth win, two weeks ago at Chicagoland. 12. Matt Kenseth, 96.8. Before his 38th-place finish last year, Kenseth’s worst finish over a six-race stretch was 16th in 2004. His other finishes were four top fives and a 10th. Kenseth leads teammate Biffle by one point and is a point behind Martin. If Kenseth returns to form, he’ll do just fine. 17. Jeff Burton, 100.6. Burton has the third-best driver rating, and only Stewart and Johnson have led more laps than Burton in the past four Brickyards. Burton has finished in the top 10 the past two years and desperately needs another. He is struggling and has one top 10 since early May. He is 182 points behind Kenseth and is a long shot at best to make his fourth straight Chase. A bad finish Sunday likely will dash his postseason hopes.
