Driver Group Game Picks for Texas


The Cup Series will travel to the Lone Star State this weekend to compete at Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the first race in the round of 12. All races are important, but the last thing the playoff teams will want is to try and dig out of a hole at Talladega and the Charlotte Roval. It should be fun to see how it all plays out. The Auto trader EchoPark Automotive 400 can be seen Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on USA Network.

The Cup Series teams had 20-minutes to shake down their cars for Sunday’s race at Texas. We can learn a bit by looking at the single-lap speeds, but I will be focusing on the 10-lap average speed for the picks for Sunday’s race.

Here is my starting lineup for the Auto trader EchoPark Automotive 400


* The race Sunday looks like a battle between KYLE LARSON and DENNY HAMLIN. Either one would be a great choice. If you are running low with your allocations with one of these drivers, use the other one Sunday.


* ERIK JONES looks really fast again this week. If you put him in your lineup, it may not be a bad idea to take a chance with the No. 43 car Sunday.


* AJ ALLMENDINGER looks really fast this weekend. I would take a chance with the No. 16 car if you have Allmendinger in your lineup.



Good Luck Sunday!
