Martinsville 2 Post Practice Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

Playing Spoiler This week’s race at Martinsville kicks off the Eliminator Round of the Chase. If a driver still in championship contention wins here on Sunday, they will automatically advance and be eligible for the title at Homestead. Four Chasers have won here before–Jeff Gordon (8), Denny Hamlin (4), Ryan Newman (1), and Kevin Harvick […]

Charlotte 2 Post Practice Fantasy NASCAR Predictions – Bank of America 500

Plenty of Drama Already We’re at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend, and there are a few teams that absolutely need a good run on Saturday night–namely Brad Keselowski, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and Jimmie Johnson. I’m already loving this new Chase format. Kyle Busch continued his hot streak on Thursday and won the pole for this […]

Kansas 2 Post Practice Fantasy NASCAR Predictions – Hollywood Casino 400

It’s Time to Live up to the Nickname Kansas Speedway was repaved in the middle of the 2012 season. We’ve now had four Sprint Cup races on the “new” surface, so that gives us plenty of data to work this weekend. Also, we raced here back in May. Kevin Harvick had the dominating car that […]

Chicago Post Practice Fantasy NASCAR Predictions – MyAFibStory.com 400

No Worries With Penske Despite Weekend Struggles The Sprint Cup teams have been dealing with weather more than usual at Chicagoland Speedway this weekend. They got Practice #1 in on Friday but qualifying was rained out so the starting lineup was set by the practice speeds. Kyle Busch will lead the field to the green […]

For us fantasy people, that might shake things […]

Bristol 2 Early Week Pre-Practice Top 20 Fantasy Projections – IRWIN Tools Night Race

There’s nothing quite like some Saturday night short track racing at Bristol Motor Speedway. We raced here back in March, but the finishing order wasn’t very indicative of who had the best car because of some drivers being on different strategies. I don’t think we’ll see that again this time around. Track position is very important at Bristol […]

Michigan 2 Post Practice Fantasy NASCAR Predictions – Pure Michigan 400

Johnson Struggling, Gordon Still Fast Michigan International Speedway was repaved before the 2012 season and is now the fastest track on the circuit. So, when we’re looking at who to pick in fantasy, those with the strongest engines definitely have an advantage. However, races here often come down to fuel mileage events as well, so […]

Michigan 2 Early Week Pre-Practice Top 20 Fantasy Projections – Pure Michigan 400

Can Six Time Turn Things Around? Michigan International Speedway was repaved before the 2012 season, so we now have a solid 5 races to look at when making our picks this weekend. We were here back June and that’s the race I’ll be focusing on the most. Horsepower is important here because Michigan is such a […]

Watkins Glen Early Week Pre-Practice Top 20 Fantasy Projections – Cheez-It 355

Three Times The Strategy For the third race weekend in a row–and probably more prominently than the last two–pit strategy is going to come into play on Sunday; that’s just how these road course races always work out. Watkins Glen is faster than Sonoma, thus being able to conserve your brakes will be an advantage in the Cheez-It […]
