Brickyard 400 Driver Handicaps

Sterling Marlin

Marlin hadn’t finished particularly well at the Brickyard (one career top 10) until last year. In that race he led the most laps and finished a strong second to Jeff Gordon.

Mark Martin

Martin was the Brickyard 400 runner-up in 1998 and has five top 6 finishes in the eight Brickyards run to date.

Jimmie Johnson

This weekend marks the first time Jimmie Johnson will compete at the Brickyard. Normally you wouldn’t expect much of a rookie here, but Johnson has been defying expectations all year.

Jeff Gordon

Gordon is an odds on favorite at Indianapolis, in his adopted home-state of Indiana. His win here last year was one of three Indy victories, including the inaugural 1994 running of the event. Top six finishes in six of eight Brickyard 400s.

Kurt Busch

In his first race at the Brickyard Busch finished a very respectable fifth.

Ricky Rudd

Rudd’s 1997 Brickyard 400 victory is arguably the biggest of his career. Certainly it was as far as a paycheck. Three top 10 finishes in eight Brickyard starts but 39th here last year.


Tony Stewart

Stewart is an Indiana native and dearly covets at win at this track, whether it be in an open wheel car or a stock car. Top 10 finishes in two of three Brickyards he’s run.

Rusty Wallace

Wallace has finished in the top 10 in seven of eight Brickyards, and while he hasn’t won the race Rusty has finished second twice.

Bill Elliott

Elliott has been in contention to win the Brickyard numerous times, most notably in 1995, but hasn’t managed the feat yet. Top 12 finishes in all but one race here. A good dark horse pick.

Matt Kenseth

Kenseth just hasn’t figured this place out yet. 26th and 42nd in two Indy starts to date.

Dale Jarrett

Jarrett has a pair of Brickyard 400 wins and a two third place finishes to boot. 12th here last year.

Ryan Newman

Yet another Hoosier coming home to race at the Brickyard. This will be Newman’s first stab at the track.

Jeff Burton

Burton has two top 10 finishes in eight Brickyard starts. 16th here last year.

Ricky Craven

Craven finished a respectable ninth here last year, but has finished outside the top 30 four times at Indy.

Michael Waltrip

Waltrip’s best finish at Indy is eighth in the inaugural event his only top 10 in eight Brickyard starts.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Two starts at Indy with a 13th and tenth place results.

Terry Labonte

Labonte finished third here in 1996 but that’s his only top 10 in eight Brickyard starts.

Elliott Sadler

Best finish of 23rd in three Brickyard starts.

Bobby Labonte

Prior to finishing 15th here last year, Labonte won the 2000 Brickyard 400, finished second in 1997 and 1999 and third in 1998. A very good dark horse pick.

Jeff Green

This will be Green’s first Brickyard start. He didn’t look two good at Pocono, a similar track, in two races this year.
