Will NASCAR ever get this Food City 500 at Bristol race started? I sure hope so. I hate Monday races but that is the direction it looks like it is going right now. The last forecast I saw said 100% chance of rain today at the track. That sucks!
After thinking about my Yahoo Fantasy Auto Racing picks overnight, I decided to make a change. Erik Jones has a very fast car and he has the skills to finish in the top five at Bristol but I have a feeling this race is going to get crazy. Since I only have 6 allocations with Jones I am going to put him on the bench for the Food City 500.
I will use Ty Dillon as my Group C driver. I watched Dillon in the Xfinity Race Saturday and he ran the top of the track very well. The only driver who was able to pass him at the top was Kyle Larson. This is a long race and Dillon should be able to pass some cars that are unable to run at the top.
It is very risky to sit Erik Jones this week but it is also risky to use him in a race where he could easily be taken out by another driver’s mistake. I will keep Jones for more predictable tracks.
Good luck this week and let’s hope they go racing soon!!!
