Drivers I have a TON of interest in this week:


Ryan Blaney- Blaney is likely going to be the highest owned driver in the field. He offers a lot of PD or ‘Place Differential’ upside and should score very well if he finishes the race, but he will be the chalkiest driver this week.

Kyle Busch– Busch is another driver that is going to carry higher ownership. Some of these chalk plays will work. “Stacking From the Back” is the main focus and these types of plays should score well this week on this massive track. As long as the drivers are able to avoid the Big One wreck.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr- Another chalk play that is going to see ownership. Like we saw in the truck race these “good” plays in the back carry ownership. Some of them likely work, some of them likely wreck out. A lot of upside

Austin Dillon- 

Riley Herbst

Josh Berry

David Ragan

Drivers I have Mild interest in this week:

Kyle Larson- 

Brad Keselowski

Drivers I have NO interest in this week:
