Ryan Blaney – Happy with his car. Said it’s pretty good and had good speed off of the truck. His practice average speed ranked as the best. Many people in the garage thought he had the best car this session. Ty Dillon – During his opening run he said, “Entry feels secure but my middle […]

Base Line Finish Ranges should give you a rough idea how drivers should perform heading into the weekend. Below are Base Line Finish Ranges for Kentucky.
Jimmie Johnson – Last year at Kentucky, Jimmie Johnson had top ten potential but finished an asterisk mark 40th. During the Stage #2 restart he had contact with Keselowski and wrecked. At the end of Stage #1 he finished 9th. At the time of the restart he was running just outside the top ten. Brad […]
Our long running PROS Rankings show you what driver subjectively had the best car in a particular event. In our Kentucky Extended Edition PROS Rankings we show you what ten drivers subjectively had the best car in individual races dating back to 2016. Kentucky races prior to 2016 lack relevance since the track was repaved/reconfigured.
PROS is an acronym for Projected Ranking Of Strength. What’s projected in this post is how good drivers were the last time they raced at Kentucky (2017). It shows you what ten drivers were subjectively the strongest last race. In fantasy NASCAR you can’t just look at a drivers finish position and believe that’s how […]
Below are DraftKings NASCAR driver points rankings for Kentucky during the DraftKings era on the current Kentucky surface which dates back to 2016. For more information on what happened to a driver in a particular race click the highlighted “Race Title” at the top of the column.
Ty Dillon – I’m not expecting much out of Ty Dillon at Kentucky. “Performance Wise” I would look for him to be a low to mid-twenties driver. At Kentucky, Dillon has two starts under his belt and they both are quite bad. Last year he had major brake problems early which doomed him to a […]
Matt Kenseth – Matt Kenseth will have limited fantasy value at Kentucky in the #6. I think he’ll likely be a high-teens driver, and if he has a really good race he might be mid-teens good. Anything better than that would be surprising. Charlotte is the lone 1.5 mile track he’s raced at this year […]
Aric Almirola – Aric Almirola should be on your fantasy NASCAR radar at Kentucky. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s proven to be a very solid performer. At these venues minus Texas (crashed) and Chicagoland (engine) he has an 11.3 average finish, an 11.0 average running position and has finished between 9th to 13th […]
We stop at Kentucky Speedway this weekend for our annual race in the Bluegrass State with the Quakter State 400 on Saturday night. Kentucky is 1.5-mile tri-oval track that was recently repaved, although the track decided to leave turn 3 alone. So essentially we have a “new Kentucky” in turns 1 and 2 and an […]
Kyle Busch – Kyle Busch will be poised as a favorite to win on Saturday night. Kentucky has been a great track for him and this year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s been one of the premiere performers. This year over the six combined races at tracks of this length he has 3 wins, 4 […]
