C.J. Radune is going with clutch Chase winner Kevin Harvick as his top choice in this week’s lower-risk lineup for Talladega. Harvick hasn’t finished lower than 15th in any of the last six Talladega races.
C.J. Radune’s higher-risk lineup for Charlotte’s night race puts more emphasis on drivers who haven’t been to Victory Lane in a while but show signs of scoring breakthroughs, with Kyle Busch at the top of this list.
Simon Pagenaud is unsurprisingly at the top of C.J. Radune’s lower-risk lineup, as, with a 43-point lead over second place Will Power, Pagenaud is the favorite to win the championship and Sunday’s race at Sonoma Raceway.
C.J. Radune’s higher-risk lineup for Richmond is lead by Denny Hamlin and offers more balance between high- and low-priced drivers, but also takes some risks on folks who haven’t had the greatest luck recently.
C.J. Radune’s higher-risk lineup includes some drivers who have struggled in 2016, but have historically been successful at Darlington, including Kevin Harvick, who has three top-fives from the last three races at Darlington.
