NASCAR Fantasy Picks: Best Richmond Raceway Drivers for DFS

It's time for the last Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race before their spring break. The Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway will air Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX. The package at this short track will be the same they ran at Bristol Motor Speedway last week (no aero ducts and higher horsepower).

Richmond Raceway will shine under the lights this weekend in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ first Saturday night race of 2019. Their second Virginia race in four weeks will kick off Saturday, April 13 with the Toyota Owners 400. It’s the ninth of 36 races this season, held on a .75-mile oval that runs like a short track but often races like an intermediate.

Thunder Valley is ready to rumble for the second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series short track race of 2019. Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee will host the eighth of 36 races this season, the Food City 500 on Sunday, April 7. The .533-mile oval is the quickest short track on the circuit; drivers typically run a lap here in less than 15 seconds.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races on to Texas Motor Speedway Sunday, March 31 at 3 p.m. ET. In the 2019 O'Reilly Auto Parts 500, race cars will use the same low-horsepower package as Las Vegas and Fontana. Drafting will come into play due to the lower speeds and the aero ducts. Texas also added a traction compound in the corners of the racetrack to create another racing lane.

March Madness, typically reserved for the NCAA Tournament, was supposed to trickle down to NASCAR last weekend. Martinsville Speedway’s short track is typically an automatic for the most exciting action you'll see all year; just last fall, Joey Logano pulled the bump-and-run on Martin Truex Jr. in a championship-defining moment.

NASCAR's 2019 game of strategy under its new handling package hit a whole other level Friday at Auto Club Speedway. The sport’s final round of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying ended in embarrassment... and, should we say, a lesson in punctuality. When the clock expired, not one of the 12 drivers eligible for the pole crossed the finish line in time to make a lap.

It seems appropriate NASCAR's new 2019 handling package debuts in full at Las Vegas, the gambling capital of America in Sunday’s (March 3) Pennzoil 400. There’s symbolism in using Sin City to roll the dice, a place where casinos are a dime a dozen. The financial future of the sport, its popularity and competitive parity are at stake and no one knows how it’s going to turn out.

 

That’s one heck of a bet to put on the craps table, right?

NASCAR Fantasy Picks: Best Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 Drivers for DFS

The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season is off and running as we try and prepare ourselves for the unknown of the sport's new rules package. The racing will be closer and more exhilarating, but with that comes unpredictability, more so now than ever. Daily fantasy NASCAR will be a totally different animal beginning with Sunday's (Feb. 24) Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Typically, NASCAR’s Daytona 500 is the most unpredictable race of the season. Restrictor plate racing provides parity, giving hope any of the field’s 40 cars has a chance to win. The second race of the season, Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuickTrip 500, in Atlanta is supposed to be a return to normalcy. Only a handful of favorites are supposed to forge to the front as the sport’s 2019 championship picture takes shape.

 

Not this year.

Rule changes. Manufacturer switches. A new CEO. Some might say NASCAR is throwing everything but the kitchen sink at their product, hoping some of those changes will stick.

 

Welcome to the sport in 2019.
