The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete this week at Darlington Raceway. This is one of the toughest tracks for crew chiefs to setup the car for and 500 miles is tough on the drivers as well.
There will be plenty of time for drivers to make their way to the front from the back of the pack. Since the scoring format for Fox Fantasy Auto Racing rewards drivers who improve their position in the race a lot more than the drivers who lead the most laps, I am selecting the strong cars that start in the back and hope they can keep the car off the wall for 367 laps.
Here are my picks for the Darlington….
Driver 1: Denny Hamlin $11,200 (Starts 9th)
Driver 2: Matt Kenseth $10,700 (Starts 11th)
Driver 3: Chase Elliott $10,100 (Starts 20th)
Driver 4: Jimmie Johnson $9,400 (Starts 18th)
Driver 5: Kasey Kahne $7,600 (Starts 23rd)
Good luck this week!
