Recap of Jobber For Six August 2nd: Last week we picked Christopher Bell to fly high in the #95 car at New Hampshire. The end result? Bell would end up finishing 28th after a stretch of bad luck toward the end of the race would cause him to fall drastically in position. That’s ok. That’s the game we play. This week we will be looking in a different direction. In fact, if yesterday taught us anything it would be that Kevin Harvick is still the man at Michigan and anybody else could potentially be considered a dark horse. However, we will be digging a little further into the dark horse pool this week and pick out a name that we like that should crack the top ten and perhaps if things go right he could very well be the winner by the end of the day. The dark horse winner for the Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan?
That’s right, the 2nd thing we learned yesterday its that Austin Dillon is primed for another win(his 2nd of the season). That’s right, we were high on Dillon yesterday and even saw our chances at the money go down with him as he crashed toward the end of the race. Today? You can expect Austin Dillon to fly from the 31st position into the top ten and perhaps even walk away with the victory. The fact is, Michigan has been kind to Austin. He has four top tens at Michigan in his career and he clearly was one of top ten racers yesterday as he spent the majority of his time in the top ten before the crash. If your looking for a Jobber who could very well go for Six…Austin Dillon is your guy.
Others who could go the distance? Keep an eye on…Cole Custer and Kurt Busch. Though we don’t truly look at Kurt Busch as a true dark horse, the odds makers would show otherwise as he is listed at +2500.
