NASCAR One & Done Picks for Richmond


The 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be competing at Richmond Raceway this week in the Toyota Owners 400. My One & Done picks have been pretty good this season. I am ranked 3rd out of 50 in my league. I hope you are finding success with the picks as well. My strategy of saving the top drivers for later in the season will pay off this summer.

Here are my picks for Richmond…

Danica Patrick 35th Daytona Michael McDowell 9th

Daniel Hemric ? Richmond Kurt Busch


Deniel Hemric will be my pick for both the One & Done game. Hemric will be driving the No. 8 car for Richard Childress Racing. This is his best track in the Xfinity Series so he should be pretty good Saturday night. There are 36 races on the NASCAR schedule but there are not 36 good drivers in the MENCS, so we must take advantage of the ringers whenever they are entered in the race.

Kurt Busch will be my pick in the games where you can use a driver more than once. I used Busch at Atlanta because that is his best track. Richmond ranks as his 2nd-best track. Busch had the 2nd-fastest speed on the 20 lap speed chart and that is important at Richmond. I will roll the dice with the No. 41 car Saturday night.

Good luck this week!
