The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday. I had a nice bounce back last week with 420 points at New Hampshire. My picks are currently ranked in the 99.4 percentile. Hopefully a good run Sunday will put my picks closer to the top of the Fantasy Live overall standings.
There are only 160 laps in the race Sunday. That means there are only 160 bonus points available for leading laps and fastest laps this week. Kyle Busch led 149 of the 170 laps last year and it could happen again.
The best lineup last week was with Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch as dominators and Kyle Larson, Danica Patrick and David Ragan for position differential points. I see no reason why this race should be any different. Truex and Busch have consistently led laps and Larson has passed more cars the last two races then some drivers do in a season. Danica did not disappoint last week and I realize I am playing with fire by taking the No. 10 car, but this is one of Danica’s better tracks. Ragan tested at Indianapolis in April and he is good on flat tracks. I have had good luck with the No. 38 car.
Here are my picks for the Brickyard 400…
Martin Truex Jr. $28.25 (Starts 6th)
Kyle Larson $28.00 (Starts 25th)
Kyle Busch $27.00 (Starts Pole)
Danica Patrick $9.25 (Starts 23rd)
David Ragan $7.50 (Starts 30th)
PICK TO WIN: Kyle Busch
Good luck this week!
