This week, the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Phoenix for the LA Tractor 200. I’ll be providing you with my top drivers for Saturday’s race. With some NASCAR Cup Series drivers in this race, it should make a great race. We get to see the up and coming young guns face off against some of Cup’s best and most experienced drivers. Without further ado here are my top drivers for the LA Tractor 200.
Brad Keselowski (12,600 DK)
Keselowski is a former Xfinity Series champion. This is his first Xfinity Series race of the year and I fully expect him to have a strong showing. In his most recent Xfinity Series race at Phoenix, he started second finished first and led 66 laps. He had a fast car in both practices and will be tough to beat. Look for him to do something similar to last year and dominate this race.
Daniel Hemric (8,900 DK)
Hemric ran very well last week in California. He ended up finishing fourth and got 38.5 fantasy points. He runs great at Phoenix as well as having finished in the top 10 in all four of his career Xfinity starts. Look for him to run up in the top 10 again and even have a shot at winning the race.
Austin Cindric (10,300 DK)
Cindric has been strong this year. He is coming off a third and a second-place finish the last two weeks. He has run great at Phoenix in the past with three top tens in four races. The Penske teammates are going to be tough to beat this weekend. Both Keselowski and Cindric were top four in speeds for the first practice. They were both top seven in second practice with Cindric being third. They will both look to transfer that speed over to the race.
Myatt Snider (6,700 DK)
Snider was a great value driver last week. He finished 11th and ended up with 41 fantasy points. Depending on his starting position this week he should have another good week. If he starts anywhere further than 20th he is an excellent play. However, if he starts somewhere near the top ten I would avoid him.
Michael Annett (8,500 DK)
Annett will most likely not be a contender for the win. However, he does have some solid finishes at Phoenix. Most recently being his eighth and ninth-place finishes in 2019. I expect him to run well enough to score some solid fantasy points. Although depending on his starting position that will decide if he’s worth playing this week. Similar to Snider I like him if he starts anywhere around 15th. Anything above seventh I would avoid him.
Good luck with your lineups and make sure to pay attention to qualifying. Go win some money!
