NASCAR Fantasy Picks For Pocono

Toby ChristieSenior Analyst IJune 4, 2008

Are you competing in a fantasy NASCAR league? If so this is the article you may want to check out each week.  Every week I will make a race winner pick, drivers that will finish 2nd through 5th, then a 6th driver who will run well while saving your team money if you are in a money restricted fantasy league.

Toby's Fantasy Nascar Picks for Pocono:

Race Winner: Dale Earnhardt Jr. (has finished 2nd twice in career at Pocono including last August, and is looking to rebound from last weeks 35th place frustration).

2nd place: Carl Edwards (will just miss out on a back flip after Dale Jr. and Busch have a breath taking finish which puts 2nd place in his lap).

3rd place: Kyle Busch (He will battle for the lead at the white flag will either come back third or on the wrecker, the way his luck is going I'd go with the 3rd, heck he might even win again).

4th place: Denny Hamlin (He Loves Pocono this is a no brainer).

5th place: Matt Kenseth (creeping back into points picture and will continue to Sunday).

Money Saver: Casey Mears (in two Pocono races last year he had one top-5 and finished top-10 in both races at the triangle last year).
