The first half of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season–yes, we’re already at that point!–concludes this weekend with the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday night. This will be our third restrictor plate race of the year, and we’ve already seen Austin Dillon and Joey Logano get victories on them this season. This race is also probably the last chance for some drivers to punch a ticket to the Playoffs, as it’s possible for any car to go to victory lane at Daytona and Talladega. From a Fantasy NASCAR perspective, I look at this race every year the same way when making my picks: half momentum and half how the cars have ran on restrictor plate races this year.
