2017 Federated Auto Parts 400 Sleeper Picks
Keselowski is in need of a morale-boosting result ahead of the playoffs. The No. 2 driver has had a torrid time of late, having finished no better than 15th in his last four races in a row. A trip to Richmond could be just the cure for his recent slump.
Keselowski’s last visit at the track earlier this season saw him finish second. That’s his fifth top-10 finish in his last seven starts at Richmond.
Larson has had a checkered track record at Richmond. He’s finished inside the top 10 just once in seven career starts at the track. But he’s been really solid for the most part this season, as evidenced by his third-place ranking in the standings.
Larson could use a nice confidence-boosting race ahead of the playoffs, and don’t rule out his ability to produce that performance this weekend.
Logano is still on the playoff bubble after NASCAR decided his win at Richmond in April wouldn’t count toward his playoff qualification due to a rear suspension violation. Logano has been pretty disappointing ever since that incident, as evidenced by his two top-5 finishes in his last 16 starts.
Still, Logano has a proven history at Richmond even before this year. He’s won one other time at the track and has an impressive streak of finishing in the top ten in each of his last seven starts.
