If Ambrose can win the event, it will help secure him and Almirola into the championship run at the end of the season.

Kurt Busch | 41
(July 28, 2014 10:26 AM EDT)
Kurt Busch finished 28th in the Brickyard 400. It was his worst finish since scoring a 40th at Charlotte in May.
In the past eight races Busch has scored an average finish of 13.3 with nearly all of his results in the teens. He has been a provisionally good value for fantasy owners when he has managed to avoid trouble.

Aric Almirola | 43
(July 28, 2014 10:23 AM EDT)
Since winning the Coke Zero 400 and making claim to one of the Chase slots, Aric Almirola has finished in the 20s in his last two races. He finished 21st in the Brickyard 400.
After hitting the wall in qualification and starting at the back of the pack, it seemed unlikely that he would crack the top 25. He beat that projection by four spots, so his effort could be described as a minor success.
