Fantasy NASCAR Picks for NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway
Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will be under the lights Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway for the NRA 500.

Texas is one of the fastest racetracks on the circuit and produces some of the best racing. Although it is considered a “cookie cutter” racetrack, it is much different than the other 1.5-mile racetracks. The speeds through turn one make turn two one of the hardest in the series. Teams must set their cars up to navigate the tricky turn.

This week the handling of the car will be as important as horsepower. The teams who are able to show up at the racetrack with a good setup in the car will dominate the race. Drivers who have had a history of success at Texas Motor Speedway will be the drivers to select for your team.

The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select at least two drivers who will start in the back half of the field and have a good chance to work their way to the front. This will give your team the opportunity to score points for quality passes and finishing differential. Also, try to pick two drivers who will start up front and have a chance to lead many laps in the race.

Since the race is on Saturday night, fantasy NASCAR players will have an opportunity to see two practice sessions on Thursday before their Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing lineup must be selected on Friday morning. Make sure you check out the practice speeds on before selecting your final lineup.


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