Favorite Drivers for 2022 NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400
Martin Truex Jr.
Truex Jr. is a 31-time winner in the NASCAR Cup Series and is currently under contract with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) Toyota. He joined JGR in 2019 and won his first race with the team the following year at Richmond Raceway.
For the past three years with JGR, Truex has always finished in the top 5 in his six Richmond races. Moreover, Richmond is also known as JGR’s best track. With that being said, Truex's decision to join the upcoming race at Richmond with JGR is seen as one of the most awaited races.
Truex had previously driven for Furniture Row Racing (FRR). Throughout his five-year career with FRR, Truex Jr. contributed 17 victories, including the Coca-Cola 600 and Southern 500.
Also joining fellow JGR racers is Denny Hamlin. Hamlin’s most recent wins came from the 2022 Coca-Cola 600, 2021 Southern 500, and 2020 Daytona 500. Throughout his career, he recorded 48 wins in 17 full seasons.
In addition, Hamlin also recorded 17 wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and two wins in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. In 2021, Hamlin also showed a consistent performance all season long where he only got out of the top 15 four times in his 36-race season.
Hamlin's most recent and quite surprising race was the 2022 NASCAR Pocono Raceway. On the day of the race, he was declared the winner, but it didn’t last long as NASCAR stripped off his winning title upon the finding of illegal material hidden within the nose of his car. Despite the disqualification, Hamlin is still worth noting as one of the favorite drivers to look for with such impressive race records.
Kyle Busch is driving the No. 18 Toyota Camry for JGR and has finished in the top 10 in 26 of his 33 Richmond starts. He also has the record of finishing the race in the top five more than 50 percent of the time. Busch is currently in eighth place in this season’s standings with 634 points and one win.
In May 2022, Busch showed his consistent performance during Coca-Cola 600. He has recorded four top-10s and three top-three finishes in his last five starts. Moreover, Busch also has the series-best average finish of 11.2.
