It finally came up trumps for Hendricks driver Chase Elliott on Thursday night. After his hopes of victory were quickly dashed in the previous Cup Series race. Elliot was able to close the deal, only a week later. Again rain would not cooperate, pushing the race back another day. Joey Logano would lead the first portion of the event, capturing the first stage and 33 of the laps. Alex Bowman took the stage two win but would finish in 31st place. Continue reading →
The NASCAR Cup Series schedule is starting to pick up. This will be the fourth Cup Race since returning on May 17th. They will once again be at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wednesday nights race will be only 500 km and just like last Wednesday, there will be no qualifying or practice. They will invert the field just like last week as well so, 1-20 will be flipped and 21-40 will start were they finished Sunday. Continue reading →
For an Xfinity race that was set to commence on Tuesday night, it would take two more days due to the heavy rainfalls at Darlington Raceway. Thursday would also suffer a four-hour rain delay, but would eventually get rolling.
After the Xfinity race was postponed the day before due to a torrential down pour, rain would indeed prove to be the decider in Wednesday’s Cup Series event. Until the last thirty or so laps, it did look as though the weather would indeed holdup.
Don’t worry, we didn’t have to wait too long for some more NASCAR DFS. NASCAR’s new schedule due to COVID-19 has allowed them to experiment with some mid-week races. The cars and drivers are right back to Darlington for the second cup race in four days. Sunday’s race was great and we saw Kevin Harvick ultimately end up winning the race. Just like Sunday’s race, there will be no practice or qualifying. Instead, the lineup will be set by having drivers who finished 1-20 in Sunday’s race inverted. Followed by drivers 21-40 who will start where they finished Sunday. Let’s dive right into my top drivers for Wednesday night’s race.
The NASCAR Cup series made its return on Sunday and now its time for the Xfinity series to come back. The Xfinity drivers head to Darlington for some Tuesday Night racing. The starting lineup was set by a random draw so there will be no qualifying or practice. This race will be a bit of a wild card with most of the drivers not participating in any NASCAR events in the last couple of months. Now let’s jump into our top drivers for Tuesday Nights race as we provided you with some of our top high and mid salary drivers.
Another week, another Pro Invitational win for William Byron. This win at Dover is Byron’s third in the past four weeks, throwing out the sixth-place finish at virtual Talladega. A pass on the inside with eight laps to go gave Byron the lead. Christopher Bell would manage to move himself up to the second position, and with just one lap left to go Bell was pressing hard. He was able to get to within a quarter of a second on Byron, before the No. 24 car captured another hard fought eNASCAR victory.
William Byron made it back to back wins last Sunday at Richmond. After Ryan Preece led the first 59 laps, Byron would eventually forge ahead of the No. 37 car and lead the rest of the way. He would, however, need to beat off one late challenge from Timmy Hill, before coming home with the victory. Byron would have a huge points performance, having led by far the most laps with 94.
The Iracing Pro Invitational returns this week after the weekend off for Easter. Last race was the inaugural DraftKings contest for Nascar Iracing and our driver picks crushed it. Especially considering the crazy wreck fest that it ended up being. Dale picked William Byron, who won the race and was by far the highest-scoring driver on DraftKings at 83.5 points. We also had Timmy Hill, Garrett Smithley, Ryan Preece, Bobby Labonte, and Matt Dibenedetto. They all finished higher than 13th while scoring no less than 36 fantasy points. We will look to keep the good picks coming this week.
DraftKings came through in the clutch and finally added paid iRacing contests. It was a little less than a month ago that we were getting into the swing of things for NASCAR DFS. Then COVID-19 stepped in and forced the season to be put on hold, yet here we are already into the third week of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series.
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. Continue reading →
Week three of the NASCAR Cup Series is upon us. The drivers stay out west this weekend and head out to Fontana, California. The track is Auto Club Speedway and the race will be 200 laps. The track is wide enough to go five wide, and I expect it to be a hectic race. Below I will be providing my dominator, some contenders, and some underdog drivers.
They would only manage to finish 50 of the 200 laps, last Saturday at the Las Vegas race. Before a heavy rain delay would push the event back to Sunday, and they would resume it an hour after the finish of the Cup race. Stewart Haas driver, Chase Briscoe would put on a great effort at the bull ring. Not only would he beat out Austin Cindric for the victory by three seconds, but Briscoe would also dominate in laps led with 89. Which was 25 more than the next closest driver.
First off, I would like to wish Ryan Newman a speedy recovery and I hope to see him at the track as soon as possible. This week the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Las Vegas for the Boyd Gaming 300. Just like the Daytona 500, the Boyd Gaming 300 does not look good weather-wise. Most likely qualifying will get rained out so the field will be set by points. I’ll be giving you the driver I think will dominate the race, a couple of contenders, and an underdog that will surprise people with a strong run.
After a wreck-filled Busch Clash last weekend, in which Erik Jones would manage to push his torn up Camry to victory thanks to an assist from teammate Denny Hamlin. It is now time to kick off a brand spanking new season with the Super Bowl of Nascar events the Daytona 500. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will start on pole, opposite Alex Bowman, as they were the two lone drivers to have qualified early.
So without further ado, let’s delve into the driver options for this upcoming Daytona. I’ve broken down, the selections between high salary drivers and value plays. Continue reading →
