Fantasy NASCAR Picks for Food City 500 at Bristol

This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500.

Thunder Valley is one of the best places for NASCAR fans to watch a race. The racetrack is a half-mile, high-banked oval. Drivers must be willing to push other drivers out of the way to make it to the front.

Track position will be important this week, because passing is difficult at Bristol.

Bristol Motor Speedway has pit stalls on both the front and backstretch. Try to select drivers who pit on the front, because they will have an advantage over those pitting on the backstretch.

The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select drivers who will start up front in the race. Since there are 500 laps in the race and each team receives one point for every two laps led, a driver who leads many laps would score a lot of points for your team.

Last week, Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing players were able to see stats from two testing sessions at Las Vegas before their teams had to be selected. That will not be the case this week.

Teams must select their Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing teams early on Friday morning. The first practice and qualifying will begin after your team has been selected.

There are many drivers who dominate the short track at Bristol. It will be important to get these drivers on your team this week.

Here are my picks for the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game.
