Truck Series Fantasy Picks for Charlotte

Facebooktwitter

The Truck Series will join the Cup Series and the Xfinity Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend. It seems like it is “Heim Time” every time the green flag has been waived in the recent Truck Series races. Corey Heim has won three of the last six races. Will he win again at Charlotte? The North Carolina Lottery 200 has mostly Truck Series regulars, since some of the Cup Series drivers are racing in the Xfinity Series Saturday. It will be tough to beat Mr. Heim tonight, but anything can happen in these wild races.

 

PRACTICE / QUALIFYING

The Truckers were allowed 20-minutes of track time to shake down their trucks for Friday’s race. The Truck Series races tend to end up as demolition derby races, but the racing on the 1.5-mile tracks has been pretty clean this year. They have only averaged five cautions per race and the average green flag run is 72 laps. We will need the truckers who were fast on the long-runs in our lineups tonight.

 

DFS STRATEGY FOR CHARLOTTE

There are 134 laps in the race at Charlotte (201 miles). That means there are 33.5 points available for leading laps and 60.3 points available for fastest laps (93.8 dominator points). The trend in the last three races at Charlotte is for one driver to lead 50 laps and score 38 fastest laps (29.6 dominator points). Another driver leads 42 laps and scores 18 fastest laps (18.6 dominator points). A third driver leads 40 laps and scores 12 fastest laps (15.4 dominator points). I am going to pay up for the drivers I think can lead the most laps tonight. Corey Heim will likely lead most of the laps, so I will play some one-dominator lineups tonight.

The drivers with the best chance to score dominator points today includes Corey Heim, Ty Majeski, Rajah Caruth and Tanner Gray

The drivers with the best chance to score place differential points include Nick Sanchez, Ben Rhodes, Brett Moffitt, Ty Dillon, Matt Crafton, Tyler Ankrum and Daniel Dye

* I expect Corey Heim to lead most of the laps, so I will be pairing him with five drivers who can score a lot of place differential points in my Cash Contest lineups.
