NASCAR One & Done Picks for Darlington


NASCAR will return to racing this week at the Track Too Tough to Tame. The drivers are going to be asked to show up and head into turn one at 180 MPH without any practice or qualifying. Some drivers will handle this task better than others. Using a driver with a lot of confidence at Darlington is a good strategy for your One & Done game this week.  The Real Heroes 400 can be seen Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Last Race: I used my start with Kevin Harvick and I really thought it was a great chance for the No. 4 car to get to Victory Lane. He led 67 laps, scored 1st and 2nd in the Stages and 2nd in the race. It was not a bad race but I was really hoping to get a win from him. After our bad luck in the previous races, I guess I cannot complain.


Here are my picks for Darlington…

My One & Done Pick for Darlington: Brad Keselowski

Brad Keselowski drew the pole position for the race Sunday and he is one of the safest picks in the field. Keselowski has run well this year in the 550 HP aero-package (The No. 2 car finished 5th at Auto Club and 7th at Las Vegas). Keselowski has also tamed Darlington. He won this race in 2018 and finished 5th last year. Keselowski has led laps in every race at Darlington since 2014, so you know he will spend a lot of time up front. I will play it safe and use Keselowski as my One & Done pick for NASCAR’s return to racing.


Good luck this week!
