Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway

Good morning, race fans!  It's time for the Ally 400 at the Nashville Superspeedway! This 1.33 Mile oval features a banked concrete surface like Dover.  Rain interrupted qualifying which made for some interesting lineups for the 33-car field. The long practice session helps veteran drivers level the playing field over rookies. There are also several drivers I don't think will finish anywhere near their starting position today.  At the time of this article's publishing, no drivers will be moved to the rear for the start of the race. Follow @DirtyAirFC on Twitter for any starting lineup changes!

The weather looks good for this afternoon when the green flag drops at 5:00 pm EST. Start your engines!


I'll be playing in Draft Kings this week. If you're new to the NASCAR DFS world, here's a quick summary of how scoring is done:

Look for a mix of drivers that fit the following:

Start upfront and can potentially lead a lot of laps.

Good drivers starting farther back who can pass a lot of cars and finish with a strong differential.

Drivers starting up front I like: 
Kyle Larson, Ross Chastain

Drivers with a great differential potential and could lead laps:
Martin Truex, Christopher Bell

Drivers with great differential points, and possible top finishes:
Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch

Most likely to be chalk plays:
Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch


Drivers who are good at adjusting to changing track conditions and maintaining track position will be the top dogs this week.  

Ally 400 Winner  Kyle Larson
Best Bet for a solid finish  Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin
Dark Horse Differentiators Ricky Stenhouse, Jr, Tyler Reddick
Chalk Plays Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch

This week, I'm rolling out the veterans. Ryan Blaney would also make a great play this week for a differentiator. Here's who I have in my NASCAR Fantasy Live Pool:

Driver Group Game:

This week in the diver group game, I'm looking at a mix of drivers I think can differentiate a bit on the B list. Here's who I have for the week:

One-and-Done Games:

If you are in any one-and-done pools, I'm going with Todd Gilliland. Tyler Reddick is also a solid play. Kyle Larson is a good bet if you're way behind.
