Fantasy Live Picks for Sonoma


The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Sonoma Raceway this week. This is the first trip to a road course for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

There are only 110 laps in the race and 55 points available for leading laps. Usually selecting drivers who can score position differential points is the way to go at Sonoma. I would not recommend going overboard with drivers starting in the back since Fantasy Live added Stage points to their scoring system.

Fantasy teams need to try and select drivers who can finish both Stages in the top 10 and the race in the top 10, regardless of their starting positions. Stages points and finishing points are the key to scoring well this week.


Here are my picks for the Toyota / Save Mart 350…

Kyle Busch $27.25 (Starts 4th)

Clint Bowyer $22.50 (Starts 13th)

Kurt Busch $20.50 (Starts 17th)

AJ Allmendinger $15.00 (Starts 5th)

Michael McDowell $10.25 (Starts 16th)

PICK TO WIN: Kyle Busch


*I am hedging my bet with the manufacturer this week. I will take Kyle Busch for the win, but if he is not in Victory Lane it should be a Chevy driver drinking the wine Sunday.


Good luck this week!
