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.
I am not sure way Fox Sports is still in the NASCAR business. First they eliminated their Fantasy NASCAR games and now they stop televising the Friday practices. It was not like that when I worked at Fox Sports. So today there was no TV. I was watch the live stream on nascar.com and did talk to some people at the track. Hopefully this information is enough to win us the bonus points for the pole this week.
Here is my pick for the Pole at Las Vegas: Ryan Blaney
The cars are back to 750 horsepower this week (same as last year). Most teams made qualifying runs in practice. The car that posted the fastest speed was the No. 12 car of Ryan Blaney. Team Penske has been on a hot streak and it should be a battle between Blaney, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch for the pole. I will go with Blaney. His car was 1 MPH faster than anyone else. He won the pole for this race in 2017 and qualified 2nd in the other race that year. So Blaney knows how to qualify at this track.
Good Luck this week!!
