Fantasy NASCAR Picks for Auto Club 400 at Fontana

This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Fontana, Calif., for the Auto Club 400.

The race Sunday will give NASCAR teams the chance to compete on the fifth different style of racetrack this season. So far the teams have competed on a Superspeedway (Daytona), a one-mile flat racetrack (Phoenix), a mile-and-a-half racetrack (Las Vegas) and the high-banked half-mile racetrack (Bristol). Auto Club Speedway is a two-mile racetrack.

The racing at Auto Club Speedway is usually boring. The cars get so spread out that it becomes hard to pass. The teams with the best engines will dominate on Sunday. Teams from Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing and Roush Fenway Racing will be the teams to beat.

The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select drivers who will start in the back of the field and have a good opportunity to move to the front. Your team will score bonus points for passing cars and finishing differential. If a driver for Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing or Roush Fenway Racing qualifies poorly, select the driver for your team.

Unlike the Fantasy Live game, where fantasy players have until the drop of the green flag to select their team, people playing the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game must have their lineups selected early on Friday morning. The first practice and qualifying will begin after your team has been selected, so players will not have any data to use when selecting their team. Have no fear, I can help.

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