Xfinity Series Fantasy Picks for Road America

Facebooktwitter

The Xfinity Series will go road course racing again this week at Road America. It is a shame that NASCAR took this track off the Cup Series schedule, but it is cool the Xfinity Series will return to the track for the “AJ Allmendinger Invitational.” It should be fun to see if any of the Xfinity Series regulars can take down Allmendinger on a road course. The Henry 180 can be seen Saturday at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.

 

XFINITY SERIES PRACTICE / QUALIFYING

The Xfinity Series had a 50-minute practice session to dial in their cars for the race Saturday. Most of the teams had plenty of time to make some runs and then come in to work on their cars. Traffic can skew the practice speeds, so I would not use the speed chart to make all of your DFS lineups, but it doesn’t hurt to look at the practice speeds.

Here are the lap times from the practice Friday at Road America…

 

 

STRATEGY FOR ROAD AMERICA

I never put my all of my eggs in one basket and play a driver in 100% of my lineups, but this week I am going to do it. AJ Allmendinger has finished first or second in 14 of his last 15 road course races. He often leads the most laps too. His floor is second and his ceiling is first. I will pay up for Allmendinger and try to find five drivers who can finish in the top-12 to pair with him.

The drivers with the best chance to be the top dominators include AJ Allmendinger, Justin Allgaier and Cole Custer

The drivers who start in the back with the best chance to score place differential points includes Daniel Hemric, Parker Kligerman, Austin Hill, Brandon Jones, Ryan Sieg, Jeremy Clements, Alex Labbe, Kyle Weatherman, Joe Graf Jr. and Blaine Perkins

DRIVER GROUP GAME PICKS

Here are the drivers I will use for Henry 180 at Road America…

* The rosters did not lock until after practice, so I switched Sheldon Creed (he crashed in practice) to Cole Custer. Justin Allgaier will also be a great pick.

 

Good Luck Saturday!
