Fantasy NASCAR Picks for Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series took a week off after a wild race at Martinsville Speedway. This week, the series moves to Texas Motor Speedway for the Samsung Mobile 500.

Texas Motor Speedway is one of the fastest racetracks on the NASCAR circuit. It was tough for NASCAR fans to have a weekend without racing, but a fast Saturday night special in the Lone Star State should more than make up for it.

It was another great week for my team at Martinsville. I started Jeff Gordon, Ryan Newman, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Brian Vickers in the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game.

The lineup was good enough for 337 points (1,750 total points for the season) and moved me back up to the top 99 percent of Yahoo Fantasy Auto Racing players (Ranked No. 776 overall out of 202,000).

For the Fantasy Live game, I started Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Brian Vickers and Aric Almirola.

My strategy of selecting drivers who would lead many laps in the 500-lap race paid off. My team scored 445 points. Most of my score came from Gordon’s 231 points. My team has 1,517 points for the season, which places me No. 702 overall in the Fantasy Live game.
