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.
Most of the teams focused on their qualifying setups in the first practice Friday since there are two practices Saturday for the teams to dial in their race setups. The track will be warmer and it will likely have some rubber from the other series on it during qualifying but using the fastest cars from practice for your pole pick is not a bad idea.
Here is my pick for the Pole at New Hampshire: Chase Elliott
Chase Elliott posted the fastest lap in the first practice. His 137.086 MPH speed was nearly 0.300 fastest that second-place driver Kyle Busch. The No. 18 car has a history of qualifying up front at the Magic Mile but Busch has not won a pole this season. Elliott has two pole wins and they were both on short tracks (Bristol and Dover). I am not going to try and out think myself this week. I will just select the fastest car from qualifying practice and hope it cashes in.
Good Luck this week!!
