Austin Dillon has 5-race plate streak 10-20-2016
Austin Dillon
Austin Dillon enters the Hellmann's 500 with five consecutive top-15s, of which three are top-10s. Dillon's best result in that span came at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May; he finished third after starting on the outside pole. Last July he also qualified second at Daytona, so there is the potential that he could earn a qualification bonus in games that offer them.
Crash damage marks Biffle's plate record 10-20-2016
Greg Biffle
Greg Biffle has suffered crash damage in five of his last six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Notably, the one race in which he did not sustain damage ended in a 20th. This July, he overcame dented sheet metal to run in the top 10 with an eighth in the Coke Zero 400. Biffle will probably finish worse than he starts, however, because eight of his last nine races have resulted in negative place-differential points.
Denny Hamlin's recent plate races mixed 10-20-2016
Denny Hamlin
Since last year's edition of the Alabama 500, Denny Hamlin's restrictor-plate, superspeedway results have been a mixed bag of results ranging from first to 37th. Hamlin won the Daytona 500 and then went to Talladega SuperSpeedway to finish 31st. Last fall, he was 37th in the 500, and his Coke Zero 400 effort this July was 17th-smack dab in the middle. Prior to last fall's 'Dega race, he had six top-10s on plate tracks in seven starts.
3 accidents in last 3 on type for Buescher 10-20-2016
Chris Buescher
Chris Buescher has failed to finish with crash damage in his last three restrictor-plate, superspeedway races. In the one race Buescher completed, he finished on the lead lap in 24th. That came in last Mays's Talladega SuperSpeedway event before he was fulltime on the circuit. Buescher will be a greater value elsewhere so long as he is able to use the Roush-Fenway Racing resources.
Brad Keselowski has back-to-back plate wins 10-20-2016
Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski has won the last two plate races at Talladega SuperSpeedway in May and Daytona International Speedway in July. Those were Keselowski's 19th and 20th career wins. He started up front in both of those events, and while plate races are topsy-turvy affairs that see drivers in the front and back at various stages of competition, this suggests he had a strong motor. Winning three in a row on a plate track is difficult, but not impossible.
