This weekâsÂ NASCAR fantasy picksÂ for the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway.
Last Weekâs NASCAR Fantasy Picks: Recap from the Bank of America Roval 400 in Charlotte.
And now, here are this weekâs Brilliant, Bold, and Bonkers NASCAR Fantasy picks for the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway
Truex is the King of the intermediate tracks. This post-season chase has been fantastic for the No. 19, and itâs only going to get better from here. He won it here in the spring, so donât be surprised to see Truex take his third trip in four weeks to victory lane when all is said and done.
Yeah, I know he won last week. But that makes it even more probable that heâll take it home this week. Thereâs no arguing with the hot streak, especially when combined with a great track record. Dover is pretty much Elliotâs best track, and he finished 5th here in the first time around. Look for the No. 9 to have a stellar finish this week.
This guy. Still searching for an elusive win in the 2019 season. He won the All-Star race, sure, but you know heâs dying to get one that really counts. A win today will put Larson in a great position for the next round of the playoffs. If he can stay cool and stay out of trouble, the 42 has a shot at the title.
You cannot keep this guy down. Every week heâs there in the top ten, if not the top five. With the exception of Bristol six weeks ago, Harvick has been solid for the last 10 races. He finished fourth here in May, and I have good reason to think that heâll beat that number by three on Sunday.
He may be out of the playoffs, but Jones still has a lot to prove. Heâs been good here for his last two races, and it might take him a lot to get where he needs to be, but itâs not impossible. I think the 20 might have a few tricks up his sleeve now that the pressure is off.
How do you leave Jimmie Johnson off the fantasy list at Dover? The answer is simple: You donât. Heâs made great strides since the playoffs began, which gives me a feeling that heâs going to have a good race on Sunday. Itâs a bold prediction that heâll win it all, but these are odds Iâm willing to take.
As far as tracks go, this isnât Almirolaâs worst. However, his average finish here is still 16th, so Iâm not counting on anything spectacular to occur on Sunday. The 10 has been on a cool streak since Daytona in July, and I just donât see that heating up at Dover.
Bowyer finished 9th here in May, but thatâs likely to be as good as it gets for the 14. Itâs possible that he could sneak his way into the top 10, but it would take a lot of maneuvering to beat the guys who are already solid at the top of this list.
Itâs been a long time since those three wins at Dover for Ryan Newman. 15 years, in fact. The last few races here have been tough for the No. 6, and I donât see it getting any easier this time around.
