This week, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads back to Texas Motor Speedway for the AAA Texas 500.
Texas is one of the fastest race tracks on the schedule. Last April, Kyle Busch broke the track record with a qualifying speed of 196.299 mph. The tight corners at the race track put a premium on handling. Usually, this means the crew chiefs are just as important as the drivers at Texas. Chad Knaus and the No. 48 team may be the team to beat this week.
The last race at Texas was dominated by Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. The two drivers combined to lead 313 of the 343 laps in the race. Busch started on the pole and won the race, while Truex started fifth and finished second. Both drivers would make excellent choices for your fantasy team this week.
Since the NASCAR Sprint Cup season is coming to an end, it is becoming more difficult to find drivers for your fantasy NASCAR team. For those who play the Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing game, selecting your teams is more about allocations than it is about who will win the race.
Since most fantasy NASCAR teams are running low on the number of starts on the good drivers, I am ranking the drivers in Group A, Group B and Group C in Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing to help you determine who would be the best driver for your team.
Here are my selections for the race Sunday at Texas….
