PROS is an acronym for Projected Ranking Of Strength. What’s projected in this post is how good the driver was the last time they raced at Chicagoland. In fantasy racing you can’t just look at their finish position and believe that’s how well they ran. Things happen in races and the PROS Rankings take unfortunate circumstances into account.

A good way to think about this post is that it represents who was the best the last time they raced here using the “eye test”.

These rankings are not the projected rankings for the Chicagoland Geico 400
