NASCAR Pick’em Contest for Dover


One of the more popular ways that some people play fantasy racing is by entering a NASCAR Pick’ems Contest. Players select one driver for each race, but you can only select a driver one or two times during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. I will be providing my picks each week to help out members who play these types of games.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ? Dover Matt Kenseth


I decided to use Martin Truex Jr. in both the 1 and Done and Pick a Driver Twice contests. Charlotte has historically been Truex best track. It looked like he was going to run away with the race but fuel millage came into play. I am still happy with a third-place finish from the no. 78 car.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is very good on high-banked concrete tracks. He finished ninth at Bristol and should run just as well this week. I thought about Daniel Suarez, but I do not trust him at a track that is so hard to drive.

Matt Kenseth is always good at Dover. I like to save a t start with him for New Hampshire so I have no problem using the No. 20 car in games that allow more than one allocation per driver. Joe Gibbs Racing looks fast at the Monster Mile.


Good luck this week!
