Bubba Wallace has an average finish of 16.75 and average start of 20.50 through Week 4 of the 2020 schedule, giving him a place-differential of +3.75.
Wallace’s +3.75 ranks seventh-best among 38 drivers so far this season. He has finished worse than he started in two of the four races this year, but his gains outweigh his losses. Wallace’s average is positively impacted by a +21 at Vegas when he finished sixth with a good strategy call. He also finished eight positions better than his qualification effort at Phoenix; he was 19th after starting 27th.

Ryan Blaney has a Driver Rating of 91.8 through Week 4 of the 2020 season, according to NASCAR Statistical Services.
Blaney’s rating of 91.8 ranks eighth among 38 drivers. His ranking should be higher. Through the first three weeks of the season, he landed inside the top 10 each time with a worst of seventh at Daytona. His next two DRs were third-best at Vegas and second-best at Auto Club, but his early damage at Phoenix insured he would finish badly in every statistical category in the FanShield 500k.
