Fantasy NASCAR Driver Stats

Facebooktwitter

Fantasy NASCAR is a game of momentum. While it is important to look at which drivers run well at each track, it is also important to look at which drivers have been running up front in the last four races.

The statistic that does not lie is average running position. Some drivers gamble in the pits (like Ty Dillon last week). Other drivers run up front but have problems in the closing laps (like Matt Kenseth last week) and finish outside the top 10. The average running position looks at each lap and shows where each driver was positioned for most of the race.

Here is the driver’s average running position of the last four races…
