Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Fantasy Preview

Good morning, race fans!  It's time for the Coca-Cola 600 at Dover Motor Speedway! This raceway is the home track for many teams, a 1.5-mile oval. It is a slick, bumpy track, and it goes through several changes as the night wears on. It's a track where certain veterans shine and I'll be rolling them out without reservation. 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 penalties are assessed 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 6:00 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: 
Denny Hamlin, Chase Elliott

Drivers with a great differential potential and could lead laps:
Martin Truex, Ross Chastain

Drivers with great differential points, and possible top finishes:
Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski

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.  

Coca-Cola 600 Winner  Martin Truex, Jr.
Best Bet for a solid finish  Kevin Harvick, Ross Chastain, Denny Hamlin
Dark Horse Differentiators Brad Kesolowski, Chris Buescher
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 Kaz Grala.  Chris Buescher is also a solid play. Kyle Busch is a good bet if you're way behind.
