Your daily fantasy NASCAR FanDuel roster should be a little easier to fill out this week than most. Even though NASCAR is one of the most unpredictable sports, Kansas Speedway is one of its most predictable tracks.
The first nine races of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season saw Chevrolet get shut out of Victory Lane. And make no mistake: it was the equivalent of a 9-0 shutout in Major League Baseball. Heading into Sunday's Gander RV 400, the Camaros may bring momentum but they're still recovering from getting their butts whipped everywhere outside the giant superspeedways.
Talladega Superspeedway is ready to rumble for a stock car milestone we haven’t seen in over 30 years: a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race without restrictor plates. The 2019 GEICO 500 will mark the 10th race on the schedule and the first since 1987 at the track without those four-hole plates designed to reduce horsepower inside the engine.
The 2019 Toyota Owners 400 is the third Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series short track race on a track a mile or less in the first nine events. It’s typically a prime stretch for a driver who doesn’t have the speed at intermediates, the bread and butter of NASCAR’s schedule, to steal a win. But as we head into the first Saturday night race of the season we’re still looking for that surprise driver to make an appearance.
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).
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.
Sunday's starting lineup for the 2019 O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway is set. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is down in the Lone Star State for the seventh race of their season, held at the 1.5-mile tri-oval down in Fort Worth. The new intermediate, low-horsepower handling package took center stage once again along with adjusted qualifying rules.
Joey Logano returns to the track that changed the course of his career Sunday for the 2019 STP 500. Martinsville Speedway provided the mayhem that would propel him to win a series championship.
No one was thinking Logano back then as the laps wound down here during the race last fall. NASCAR’s Big Three of Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick had dominated the season to that point. The trio were widely expected to make NASCAR’s championship finale a private battle among themselves.
It’s time for one of the most popular (and my favorite) Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racetrack of the year: the predictably unpredictable paperclip that is Martinsville Speedway. The 2019 STP 500 is the latest FanDuel daily fantasy NASCAR opportunity headed your way.
NASCAR’s short track season is underway with the starting lineup set for Sunday’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway. It's the sixth Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of 2019 and the first at a track less than a mile in length.
