The 2018 MENCS will compete at Texas Motor Speedway this week. The track was repaved before the races last year so we will see some blazing fast speeds this week. The race can be seen Sunday at 2pm ET on Fox Sports 1.
Once again NASCAR had practice in qualifying. There was lightning in the area so the last two rounds of qualifying was canceled. Usually some teams hold back in the first round to save their tires for rounds 2 and 3. I think this happened Friday and some of the drivers starting in the back have fast cars.
Slingshot Fantasy Auto Contest awards 2 points per gained in the race. My strategy this week is to take the good cars that start in the back who have a great chance to move up in the race. I will also select one driver who starts in the top 10 with a good chance to win the race and score the 20 bonus points for the win. That driver this week will be Kyle Busch.
Here are the rest of my picks for the Texas….
Driver 1: Kyle Busch $12,500 (Starts 8th)
Driver 2: Chase Elliott $11,600 (Starts 20th)
Driver 3: Erik Jones $10,000 (Starts 21st)
Driver 4: Austin Dillon $7,900 (Starts 17th)
Driver 5: William Byron $8,000 (Starts 33rd)
Good luck this week!
