There are just two weeks left until NASCAR’s playoffs begin and there are still plenty of automatic forecasts left for your taking. Denny Hamlin must be thrilled that the tour is headed back to Darlington Raceway.
The defending champion of this Bojangles Southern 500, Hamlin is second among active drivers with two wins in the 1.366-mile monitor and he has seven top 5s and 10 top 10s to go with it in 12 career races at the track. He has finished in the top 3 of the last six races at Darlington and 4 at five of the last six on that track.
The 38-year-old needs to be thrilled to make his way to South Carolina this week because he looks for his first victory of the year as well as an automatic berth to the playoffs. However, with just three finishes within the top 10 in his last six races, he isn’t performing at his absolute best.
The Big 3 of Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. are doing just that. All three’ve wins on the track in their careers and have combined for 11 top 5s and 24 top 10s at Darlington Raceway. Busch is second among active drivers at motorist rating at the South Carolina track (105.1) and he’s our choice to win the Bojangles Southern 500.
