NASCAR Pick’em Contest for Texas

Facebooktwitter

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.

This is getting ugly. The Drivers I have left include: Kevin Harvick, Cole Whitt, Reed Sorenson, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Gray Gaulding, Derrike Cope and B.J. McLeod. That does not leave me a lot to work with. Since there are only 25 good drivers in the MENCS, I am sure most people are in the same situation. I am saving Harvick for Phoenix so I will do the best I can with the scrubs at Texas.

Cole Whitt is my pick this week. I am not going to try and convince you he is a good pick. He is just the best choice I have available. If there is a big wreck at the end of the race he could sneak into the top 25.

Joey Logano will be my pick in the games you can select a driver twice. The No. 22 has been performing much better in recent races and his stats at Texas are in the top 10. Hopefully Logano can run up front this week.

Good luck this week! We need it at this time of year!
