Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Preview
Two races down, 34 to go! Stop #3 on the NASCAR tour is the 1.5-mile track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We'll see some carry-over from Auto Club Speedway, as well as some new data we'll look at. A lot of the names you heard about last week will be in play, but some are better here than last week's event. A 35-minute practice session has been added to the schedule this weekend, with no A or B grouping, so look for who is making improvements in that session. Qualifying will be after.
Driver Group Game rosters lock before practice and qualifying but don't be afraid to use drivers that like logging practice time.
|Ryan Blaney is a driver you won't hear much about, but he's sporting an average start of 14.7 and with a 5.7 average finish, so he knows how to get to the front with passing points.|
|Denny Hamlin has the best results over the past three events here, with a win, and an average finish of 2.7 over those three races Special bonus 305 laps lead, with Kyle Larson being a distant second behind him. Looking to bounce back, this could be the weekend it all comes together for him.|
|Race Winner||Denny Hamlin|
|Best Bets||Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Kyle Larson, Ryan Blaney|
|Dark Horse Picks||Kurt Busch, Tyler Reddick, Erik Jones, Austin Cinric|
|Drivers I'm Fading||Alex Bowman, Kevin Harvick|
Driver Group Game:
Since practice will happen before rosters partially lock, and some leagues offer qualifying bonus points, you have to have your line-ups set before Saturday 3/6 at 8 am EST. Here's who I have for the week:
