The New Hampshire Motor Speedway is the definition of a finesse race track. Some drivers tend to take to the flat, 1.058 mile track, and they have had great success there. Who are the five drivers who dominate at New Hampshire?

5. Joey Logano

By the Numbers: 2 Wins; 8 Top-5s; 13 Top-10s; 130 Laps Led; 14.6 Avg. Finish; 24 Races

Breakdown: The place Joey Logano got his first win has been kind to him ever since. He won another race there in 2014, and he had a string of six top-5s out of 11 races at the track between 2014 and 2021. While he did not finish well last year, he led 25 laps, and he is set to be a big factor this weekend.

4. Kyle Busch

By the Numbers: 3 Wins; 11 Top-5s; 16 Top-10s; 1,134 Laps Led; 14.2 Avg. Finish; 31 Races

Breakdown: Kyle Busch has a handle on seemingly almost every track on the NASCAR Cup Series calendar, and New Hampshire is one of them. He has the most laps led at the track amongst active drivers, and he had led 100+ laps at the track on four separate occasions. His most dominant performance came in 2017 where he led 187 laps en route to a win.

3. Kevin Harvick

By the Numbers: 4 Wins; 14 Top-5s; 23 Top-10s; 831 Laps Led; 12.2 Avg. Finish; 39 Races

Breakdown: The elder statesman of the Cup Series has the most wins at the track amongst active drivers, and, he is always in contention at the track. Harvick has three wins, nine Top-5s, and 10 Top-10s in the last 12 races at the track. His most dominant performance came in 2006 where he won from the pole leading 196 laps.

2. Brad Keselowski

By the Numbers: 2 Wins; 9 Top-5s; 15 Top-10s; 598 Laps Led; 10.0 Avg. Finish; 22 Races

Breakdown: The driver with the second best average finish at the track rarely finds himself in trouble at New Hampshire, and he normally finds himself up front. He had one of his best races last season at New Hampshire with a seventh place finish. His most dominant effort came in 2020 where he led 184 laps en route to his second career victory at the track.

1. Denny Hamlin

By the Numbers: 3 Wins; 11 Top-5s; 18 Top-10s; 755 Laps Led; 9.5 Avg. Finish; 29 Races

Breakdown: Denny Hamlin had the best average finish of any active driver at the track, and he has had some tremendous races at New Hampshire. His best season at the track came in 2012 where he won the fall race and led 343 of the 601 laps run at the track that season. He finished sixth at the track last year when teammate Christopher Bell won.

There have been plenty of drivers who have found success at New Hampshire Motor Speedway over the years, and these are some of the best. Which of these drivers will dominate this weekend?
