Fantrax Salary Cap Challenge Picks for Indianapolis


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will travel to Indianapolis Motor Speedway this week for the Brickyard 400. All on track activity was canceled Saturday and the field will be set by owner’s points. The race will either be at 1 pm ET Sunday or Monday after the Xfinity Series race.

I evaluated all of the stats and moved the drivers in and out of my lineup. Here is the lineup that should give us the best chance to score well Sunday afternoon.
