The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series comes home this Memorial Day weekend for the Coca-Cola 600. This is the longest race of the year and usually the teams who are performing well through the first 11 races perform well in this marathon.
Fantasy NASCAR players will be able to use the information from last week’s Sprint All-Star race to determine which drivers they should select for the Coca-Cola 600. The winner of the Sprint Cup All-Star race has gone on to win the Coca-Cola 600 seven times. Jimmie Johnson has a good chance of making it eight.
In addition to the Sprint All-Star Race, NASCAR teams will have 3.5 hours of practice time to prepare for the Coca-Cola 600. Do not get too caught up in the practice times this week because all of the practices occur during the day and the race is at night. The track conditions will be totally different.
The strategy for the Fantasy Live game should be to select as many drivers from Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing as possible. The two organizations have dominated the 2013 season and I see no reason why it will change this week. The list of drivers include: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch
Fantasy NASCAR teams playing the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game must know that their team must be selected by early Thursday morning this week. Qualifying takes place Thursday night, so Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing locks the rosters early this week.
Here are my picks for the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game…
