This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Darlington for the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
Darlington is often referred to as; “The lady in black.” Drivers who lose their focus will end up in the wall. Whatever you call Darlington the one thing everyone agrees upon is that experience matters at Darlington.
This week fantasy NASCAR players will want to use past experience at Darlington as the determining factor for selecting their drivers. Teams are either very good at Darlington, or they will end up with crashed racecars. You do not want the drivers that bounce off the wall during the race.
The Southern 500 is a Saturday night special, so make sure your team is selected early this week.
The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select experienced drivers for your team. If a driver with a lot of success at Darlington qualifies near the back of the field, make sure you select that driver for your team. Most drivers can get around Darlington during qualifying, but when there are 43 others cars on the racetrack, it is totally different.
It is back to normal for Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing. Last week fantasy NASCAR teams were able to see two practices before their teams must be selected. That is not the case this week. Teams must be selected by early Friday morning. Fantasy NASCAR teams will not be able to see any practices before their teams are picked. Have no fear, I can help!
Here are my picks for the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game…
