The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete this week at Pocono Raceway. This is the MENCS second trip to the Tricky Triangle in the last two months.
Track position is important this week because clean air is king at Pocono. 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. It will be hard to pass this week so I am not going too deep into the field for my picks. Selecting drivers who start between 5th and 25th is the best strategy for Sunday.
NASCAR is using a condensed schedule this week so I have a short time to post my picks. I will not have time to break down why I selected the drivers I did. Next week the series is using the same schedule so I will have a short amount of time to make picks for Watkins Glen. The series will be back to a normal schedule the following week at Michigan. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Here are my picks for the Overton’s 400….
Driver 1: Kyle Larson $13,400 (Starts 16th)
Driver 2: Kyle Busch $10,500 (Starts Pole)
Driver 3: Matt Kenseth $10,100 (Starts 15th)
Driver 4: Brad Keselowski $10,100 (Starts 11th)
Driver 5: Aric Almirola $5,900 (Starts 25th)
Good luck this week!
