Drivers to Watch

Michael Waltrip Improved two positions to sixth in the points race thanks to a seventh-place finish in the Auto Club 500; it was his first top 10 after four races of 17th or worse; winner of the Daytona 500 in February; bad news at Richmond is that he has not been able to record a top-10 finish in 34 career starts at the short track; hopes to snap that streak which also includes just one result better than 20th, a 19th in May 2000 in his last 12 starts; was 24th in the Pontiac Excitement 400 last season and 36th in the Chevrolet Monte Carlo 400 in September.
