Championship Week Fantasy NASCAR Schedule

Facebooktwitter

It is time to crown some champions in NASCAR’s top-three series. The schedule for the races at Phoenix will not be like most of the schedule we have seen this year. The Truck, Xfinity and Cup Series will all have practice sessions and the field will be set through qualifying (The way it should be). The unique schedule also means I need to adjust the schedule for my picks. Here is the schedule for the Championship Week at Phoenix…

 

Cup Series Schedule

Friday, November 5th Cup Series 1st Practice (2 p.m. ET)

Friday, November 5th Cup Series Final Practice (5 p.m. ET)

Saturday, November 6th Cup Series Qualifying (3:30 p.m. ET)

Sunday, November 7th Cup Series Race (3 p.m. ET on NBC)

 

Xfinity Series Schedule

Friday, November 5th Xfinity Series 1st Practice (1 p.m. ET)

Friday, November 5th Xfinity Series Final Practice (4 p.m. ET)

Saturday, November 6th Xfinity Series Qualifying (2 p.m. ET)

Saturday, November 6th Xfinity Series Race (5 p.m. ET on NBCSN)

 

Truck Series Schedule

Friday, November 5th Truck Series Final Practice (10 a.m. ET)

Friday, November 5th Truck Series Qualifying (4:30 p.m. ET)

Friday, November 5th Truck Series Race (8 p.m. ET on FS1)

 

 

Driver Group Game picks need to be submitted by Saturday, November 6th at 8 a.m. ET.  We will once again be selecting eight drivers (2 from Group A, 4 drivers from Group B and 2 drivers from Group C). All drivers will score points for qualifying, but only the four drivers (1 from Group A, 2 from Group B and 1 from Group C) will score points from the race. We get to see two practices Friday so I will post my picks Friday evening.

 

The Fantasy Live and One & Done Game picks will be posted after qualifying Sunday morning. (I may post the One & Done picks early since the choices are limited for this race)

 

The DraftKings and FanDuel picks for the Cup Series will be posted Sunday morning. These will be simple articles with just picks. I will be posting my Core Drivers, Cash Contest picks and Tournament Contest picks for the race.

The initial Driver Rankings for the Cup Series race will be posted Tuesday, November 2nd after the initial entry list is posted. These rankings will likely change after practice and qualifying.

The Best Bets for Championship Weekend will be posted Wednesday. I want to get some bets in early before the cars turn any laps on the track. We should get good odds on some sleeper picks if we wager on them before they post fast laps in practice.

 

I need to wait until after qualifying before I can post the DraftKings picks for the Xfinity Series. The site awards place differential points and I cannot determine which drivers to use in the lineups until I know where they start in the race. Like the Cup Series, there will be no model this week. The article will include my Cash Contest picks and Tournament Contest picks for the race. The DFS Xfinity Series article will be posted after qualifying on Saturday.

It is going to be a slow week and a crazy weekend. I will do my best to get the picks posted ASAP.

 

Have a great week!
