Like in Group A, fantasy NASCAR teams will not want to save starts in Group B this week. The top drivers in the group are the drivers who dominate at Dover.
If you want a sleeper this week, Marcos Ambrose is your driver. Ambrose has finished three of the last four races at Dover in the top 10. He only has one top-10 finish this season, but another is a possibility on Sunday.
Here are the four drivers I selected for Group B and stats from the NASCAR Media Center based upon their career statistics at Dover….
I know it seems as though I select Kyle Busch every week, but he is the best driver in Group B. Even if you do not start him on your team, he has a great chance to score your team qualifying points.
Busch has two wins, seven top-five finishes and 10 top-10 finishes in his 16 career races at Dover. In the last four races at Dover Busch has the third-best driver rating of 107.7, he has the second-most laps led with 303 and the third-best average starting position of No. 6.
Kyle Busch will challenge Jimmie Johnson for the win on Sunday.
Carl Edwards is another driver who has been used many times this year in fantasy NASCAR, but he must be on your team this week.
Edwards has one win, eight top-five finishes and 12 top-10 finishes in his 17 career races at Dover. In the last four races at Dover, Edwards has the second-best driver rating of 108.7, he has the third-most laps led with 233 and the seventh-best average finishing position of No. 10.
Edwards will be the top Ford in the field this week at Dover.
Kurt Busch is my selection based upon the speed his team brings to the racetrack each week. The No. 78 Furniture Row Racing team seems to have their groove. Busch has not only been qualifying well, he has been able to keep his car up front. His pit crew worries me, but he is hot right now so get what you can out of the No. 78 team.
Martin Truex Jr.
My last selection for Group B came down to a decision between two Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas. Mark Martin has excellent career statistics at Dover, but he has a streak of three races finishing outside of the top 25. I decided to go with the safer pick, Martin Truex Jr.
Truex has one win, one top-five finish, six top-10 finishes and two poles in his 14 career races at Dover. In the last four races at Dover Truex has the fourth-best average starting position of No. 7 and he has a average finishing position of No. 12. Truex would be a good backup plan this week in Group B.
Other good choices: Martin Truex Jr., Mark Martin, Ryan Newman and Marcos Ambrose
