The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to the Heartland this week for the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway.
This will be the second week in a row that the series will race on a 1.5-mile racetrack. Drivers who had success at Las Vegas and Texas will be the drivers to select for your fantasy team this week. Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards and Martin Truex Jr. all finished in the top 10 in both races.
Now that Kansas Speedway has been repaved and progressive banking added, the racetrack will produce better racing. The new Gen-6 car should provide the fastest speeds ever seen at Kansas Speedway. Last week Kyle Busch set a new track record at Texas. Do not be surprised if a new record is set this week at Kansas Speedway.
The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select a combination of drivers who will start in the back of the field that will have a good opportunity to move to the front and drivers who start up front who could lead many laps. Your team will score bonus points for passing cars, finishing differential, laps led and fastest laps.
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…
