Fantasy Live allows each team to try and predict the driver who will win the pole each week. You do not have to make a pick, but if you do and you are correct; your fantasy team will earn 5 bonus points. These points can add up and be the difference in a few positions in your league standings so we need to get them right this year.
Here is my pick for the Pole at Atlanta: Kevin Harvick
Kevin Harvick only ran 2 laps in practice. The team wanted to save their tires for the practice sessions Saturday. After Harvick made his laps he said, “The car feels good. Balance is good. About like what we had here before.” His teammates (Clint Bowyer and Aric Almirola) were the only two drivers who ran in a pack in practice. They posted the fastest speeds. The No. 4 car is going to rely on the data from the 14 and 10 for their qualifying lap. Rodney Childers has a plan and I trust him. I am not worried about Harvick’s practice speed.
Good Luck this week!!
