First off, I'm happy to back. Had to take a few weeks off because I simply have not had enough time to properly prepare for the last couple of races. I'm ready to get back at it and bring home a solid finish this season. So let's get to it.
I'm expecting a pretty wild Xfinity race on Saturday. As we saw in all practices on Friday, there's not a lot of runoff room around the track so any off track adventures usually lead to heavy damage and could be race ending. We've got 67 laps scheduled, so a pretty limited amount of laps led and fastest laps points are at stake. We'd love to have someone score a few of those, but our main focus really has to be on raw finishing position and getting guys who will move up from their starting spot and not go backwards.
Based on recent road course performance and practice times from Friday, here is who I am most interested in heading into qualifying and the race on Saturday:
