The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete this week at Martinsville Speedway. This is the first race of the Round of 8. The drivers who are still racing for the championship should be the drivers who run up front Sunday. Try to get these drivers in your lineup if possible (Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney.)
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. Track position will be at a premium this week so do not go crazy and start drivers who qualified too deep in the field. Cars tend to go a lap down fairly early in this race.
Here are my picks for the Martinsville….
Driver 1: Kyle Busch $11,400 (Starts 14th)
Driver 2: Brad Keselowski $10,200 (Starts 7th)
Driver 3: Kyle Larson $10,500 (Starts 9th)
Driver 4: Matt Kenseth $10,600 (Starts 17th)
Driver 5: AJ Allmendinger $6,600 (Starts 27th)
Good luck this week!
