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:
Drivers with a great differential potential and could lead laps:
Drivers with great differential points, and possible top finishes:
Most likely to be chalk plays:
Drivers who are good at adjusting to changing track conditions and maintaining track position will be the top dogs this week.

Each driver has 10 allocations, a garage slot you can swap with mid-race, and now the ability to choose drivers in head-to-head matchups for bonus points. Play at nascar.com.
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:
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.
