Atlanta Motor Speedway is not the same track that it once was. It is now a mini-superspeedway if you will, and the necessary tools to win at this track have changed significantly. Who are the drivers who tend to dominate at these types of race tracks between Daytona, Talladega, and Atlanta?

5. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

By the Numbers: 3 Wins; 9 Top-5s; 13 Top-10s; 282 Laps Led; 45 Races

Breakdown: The Daytona 500 Champion is always a threat when it comes to superspeedway racing. Every one of his Cup Series victories have come on these types of tracks, and he has led laps in every one of the Atlanta races under this current configuration.

4. Ryan Blaney

By the Numbers: 3 Wins; 10 Top-5s; 16 Top-10s; 489 Laps Led; 37 Races

Breakdown: Much like Stenhouse, Ryan Blaney has led laps in every race at Atlanta under the current configuration. Add to that Blaney has six top-2 finishes at these types of race tracks since his first superspeedway win at Talladega in October of 2019. Penske power on a superspeedway track usually produces results.

3. Joey Logano

By the Numbers: 5 Wins; 17 Top-5s; 23 Top-10s; 818 Laps Led; 61 Races

Breakdown: A style of racing that is normally known for it’s massive amount of lead changes, Joey Logano dominated at Atlanta in the spring leading 140 laps. He was clearly the top-car of the day, and he has always been one of the top racers on these types of tracks. He will be hard to beat this weekend.

2. Brad Keselowski

By the Numbers: 7 Wins; 14 Top-5s; 21 Top-10s; 701 Laps Led; 60 Races

Breakdown: Brad Keselowski finished a solid second in the spring race at Atlanta, while leading 47 laps. He nearly found a way to score his first career win as an owner-driver, and this weekend could be one of if not the best weekend for that to happen. Even while riding for RFK, he is a driver to watch on a track like Atlanta this weekend.

1. Denny Hamlin

By the Numbers: 5 Wins; 21 Top-5s; 28 Top-10s; 1,102 Laps Led; 73 Races

Breakdown: A three-time Daytona 500 winner gets automatic entry to the top-spot on this list. Not only is Hamlin great at racing on these types of tracks, but he gets things done in the biggest stages on these types of tracks. Atlanta is a place that Hamlin should look to as a big opportunity to win.
