The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete this week at Talladega Superspeedway. This is the second race of the Round of 12. It is also one of the most difficult races in the playoffs. Drivers do not control their own fate in this race. It is all about being in the right place at the right time.
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. You must select the drivers who start in the back this week. Position differential points add up quickly at Talladega and you must have them in order to score well. My highest scores of the season came in the three plate tracks. I plan to score over 300 points again Sunday.
Here are my picks for the Talladega….
Driver 1: Kevin Harvick $11,600 (Starts 22nd)
Driver 2: Martin Truex Jr. $10,900 (Starts 21st)
Driver 3: Matt Kenseth $10,200 (Starts 19th)
Driver 4: Ryan Newman $9,800 (Starts 27th)
Driver 5: David Ragan $5,800 (Starts 33rd)
Good luck this week!
