Fantasy Racing: Charlotte

Bank of America 500
Lowe’s Motor Speedway
Saturday October 17th,7:30 PM ET, ABC
Race Facts: I wasn’t going to call this the NASCAR Banking 500 only from Bank of America because sorry, that’s just stupid. That’s almost as bad as the Goulds Pumps ITT Industries Salute to the Troops 250 Presented by Dodge… Mike Wallace and the Gunselman [...]

Fantasy Racing: Kansas

Price Chopper 400
Kansas Speedway
Sunday October 4, 2PM ET, ABC

Race Facts: Granted, Kansas Speedway has only hosted eight races, but Jeff Gordon is the only multiple winner. Given the fact that Jimmie Johnson has the highest driver rating at Kansas Speedway, a second Kansas win for Johnson would probably be an even money bet… Five of [...]

Fantasy Racing: Dover

AAA 400
Dover International Speedway
Sunday September 27, 2PM ET, ESPN
Race Facts: If Scott Wimmer wasn’t driving a Morgan-McClure entry this weekend, everyone who’s entered for the race would make the race… Jimmie Johnson chased down Tony Stewart over the last eight laps to win the spring race… 61 of the 79 Dover races have been won [...]

Fantasy Racing: Chase Edition

I have to give the “experts” some credit, as at least some people are venturing away from the trunk of the tree that they’re living in and picking someone other than Jimmie Johnson to win the Chase.
Of course, you can’t really blame people for picking Johnson, he HAS kinda won the last three Sprint Cup [...]

Fantasy Racing: Richmond

Chevy Rock N Roll 400
Richmond International Raceway
Saturday September 12, 7:30 PM ET, ABC
Race Facts: Seven times has a Richmond race had only two lead changes. Thankfully, the last time it happened was 1975. We shouldn’t have to worry about that Saturday night… Last year’s race saw every single car running at the finish. With the [...]

Fantasy Racing: Atlanta

Fantasy Racing: Atlanta

Pep Boys 500
Atlanta Motor Speedway
Sunday, September 6, 7:30 ET, ESPN
Race Facts: This is the first race at Atlanta under the lights, so the trends for the fall race probably aren’t all that applicable… However, track position is pretty important, as 79 of the 100 race winners at Atlanta have started in the top 10… Bobby [...]

Fantasy Racing: Bristol

Sharpie 500
Bristol Motor Speedway
Saturday August 22, 6:30 ET, ESPN
Race Facts: Judging from the Trucks race, the high line is going to be the preferred way around Bristol. Slower trucks on the high side caused fits for faster trucks on the low side… Qualifying is pretty important at Bristol as over 80% of winners have started [...]

Fantasy Racing: Michigan

Fantasy Racing: Michigan

Carfax 400
Michigan International Speedway
Sunday August 15, 2:00 PM ET, ESPN

Race Facts: Brian Vickers has won the last two pole positions at Michigan. I like his odds to make it three in a row…  Terry Labonte and the #08 team withdrew from the race this week, which is a little odd because Labonte would have been [...]

Fantasy Racing: Watkins Glen

Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips At The Glen
Watkins Glen International
Sunday, August 9, 2009, 1 PM ET, ESPN
Race Facts: This may be the stupidest sponsorship in NASCAR. It was bad enough when it was the Centurion Boats at the Glen, but now it’s the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen? I really hope that [...]

Fantasy Racing: Pocono

Fantasy Racing: Pocono

Pennsylvania 500
Pocono Raceway
Sunday August 2, 2PM ET, ESPN
Race Facts: Yeah, it’s not a race fact, but I can’t understand why NASCAR not only has two runnings of the “Take A Nap 500” every year, but has them so close together. Weren’t we just at Pocono?… There are only 43 drivers on the entry list for [...]
