This week, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads back to Phoenix International Raceway for the AdvoCare 500.
Phoenix has been a tricky race track since it was repaved in 2011. The dogleg on the backstretch leading into Turn 3 is where most of the wrecks occur. Teams who can set their cars up to navigate Turn 3 will have an advantage in the race.
The last race at Phoenix was dominated by Carl Edwards. He started the race 15th and led 122 of the 316 laps on his way to Victory Lane. A lot has happened since the second race of the season, so do not select your drivers this week based upon the last race here.
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 Phoenix.
