For the first time in history, we will have the NASCAR All-Star race in Fort Worth, Texas, and the Texas Motor Speedway. Until now, the all-star race had only left Charlotte twice in its history. The 100-lap main event has been split into six phases with the lineup for each stage being determined by separate methods.
Fourth times the charm for Kyle Larson: after going through three straight weeks of finishing runner-up, he finally cracked it at Charlotte. Beginning the race on pole, Larson showed to be the class of the field from the outset, leading the first 86 laps.
In what was a miserable Sunday afternoon last week at the Circuit of the Americas as Chase Elliott again found himself on top at a road course. While he didn’t have the fastest car all day, Elliott was able to hover among the top-four drivers capitalizing on his opportunities.
This week, the Money Train delves into the DFS options for Sunday’s Cup Series event in Austin, TX. I’ve broken down the selections between high salary, mid-range, and value play. Best of luck to everyone with their lineups this weekend.
For the majority of last Sunday’s event at Darlington, Martin Truex Jr. was in the zone. Truex Jr. would stay strong once he was able to gain that very early foothold (leading a whopping 248 of 293 laps). However, it would not be a smooth finish, considering Kyle Larson’s hard charge in the waning laps.
You need to go back to the October Race last year, in which Kyle Busch last won a race. However, he couldn’t have picked a better time to break the record for most years with at least one win (doing it on his 36th birthday). Now with 58 Cup wins, Busch sits tied for ninth with current driver Kevin Harvick.
This week, the Money Train delves into the DFS options for Sunday’s Cup Series event in Kansas. I’ve broken down the selections between high salary, mid-range, and value play. Included are player salaries from both FanDuel and DraftKings. Best of luck to everyone with their lineups this weekend.
Heading into that last restart at Richmond, it looked to be a two-way battle between Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano. However, a surprise driver in Alex Bowman would step up in a big way. Bowman would need just two laps after that final green flag in which to advance past both drivers.
For the second time this season, Gibbs driver Martin Truex Jr worked himself into victory lane. The winning pass would come on lap 485 when he overtook teammate Denny Hamlin. Hamlin himself would run one of the better races at Martinsville to his credit, leading 276 of 500 laps.
