Group B will be hard to choose from this week. Many of the good drivers in Group B only have average results at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Greg Biffle, Ryan Newman and Martin Truex Jr. have been three of the best drivers in Group B this year. I am saving my allocations for them and decided to use drivers whom I have not used as much this season.
Here are my selections for Yahoo! Group B:
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s winless streak should have ended at 105 races with a win in last year's Coca-Cola 600. Earnhardt was leading the race, but ran out of fuel a half-mile from the checkered flag.
I do not see that happening again this Sunday.
Earnhardt has either been very good nor very bad at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In his 25 career starts at the racetrack, Earnhardt has 10 top-10 finishes, but he also has 10 finishes of No. 20 or worse.
Earnhardt is having the best season of his career in 2012. He won the Sprint Cup Showdown race and the fourth segment of the All-Star race last Saturday night. I would not be surprised to see Earnhardt's winless streak end on Sunday.
Kasey Kahne is starting to turn his season around.
Kahne has a streak of five straight top-10 finishes. This is one of his best racetracks, too; in his 16 career starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kahne has three wins, six top-five finishes, eight top-10 finishes and led 711 laps.
Kahne also has a series-high 1,141 green flag passes, the fourth-best average running position of 13.4, and his 364 fastest laps run are the third-most.
He will easily finish in the top 10 in the race on Sunday.
A.J. Allmendinger is another driver who had a great night in the Sprint Cup All-Star race.
Allmendinger won the pole for the Showdown race, and then got a flat tire on the pace lap to begin the race. He had to come into the pits and get tires as the race began. Most fans thought Allmendinger was out of the race, but he managed to stay on the lead lap and finish in the second transfer spot.
Allmendinger had a fast car last Saturday night, and I think he will again on Sunday. I would not be surprised to see him win the pole for the Coca-Cola 600.
Charlotte Motor Speedway is one of Joey Logano's best racetracks. In his six career starts, Logano has two top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes. His worst finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway is No. 13.
Logano has the eighth-fastest green flag speed of 175.503, the third–best average running position of 13.0 and his average finishing position is 8.2
The Coca-Cola 600 has a habit of producing unexpected race winners. In 2007, Casey Mears won his first race, and in 2009, David Reutimann won the race. Logano might not be the favorite to win the race, but I would not be surprised to see the No. 20 car in victory lane on Sunday.
Other Good Picks: Biffle, Newman, Marcos Ambrose, Truex Jr. and Jeff Burton
