7. Martin Truex Jr. 15-1 1st 3rd 11th 13th

No wins in 20 starts, but awesome JGR equipment in 2016 makes him automatic contender

8. Kurt Busch 20-1 4th 4th 9th 15th

Three-time winner, none since 2008; last top-five was in 2010; top-10s at Phoenix, Richmond

Three-time winner, last in 2010; winless in 13 races since victory at Fontana in Week 5

10. Joey Logano 8-1 16th 6th 12th 18th

Site of first career win in 2009; also won in 2014 and then was fourth and third last year.

Note: Best handicapping strategy to begin with is review results from earlier races run at Phoenix and Richmond because both require similar setups to New Hampshire’s flat one-mile layout. Drivers good at one usually are as good on the other.
