And now, here are this week’s Brilliant, Bold, and Bonkers NASCAR Fantasy picks for the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway

Brilliant NASCAR fantasy picks

Martin Truex Jr.

  • Wins: 3
  • Top 5 finishes: 6
  • Top 10 finishes: 15

Truex is the King of the intermediate tracks. This post-season chase has been fantastic for the No. 19, and it’s only going to get better from here. He won it here in the spring, so don’t be surprised to see Truex take his third trip in four weeks to victory lane when all is said and done.

Chase Elliott

  • Wins: 1
  • Top 5 finishes: 6
  • Top 10 finishes: 6

Yeah, I know he won last week. But that makes it even more probable that he’ll take it home this week. There’s no arguing with the hot streak, especially when combined with a great track record. Dover is pretty much Elliot’s best track, and he finished 5th here in the first time around. Look for the No. 9 to have a stellar finish this week.

Kyle Larson

  • Wins: 0
  • Top 5 finishes: 5
  • Top 10 finishes: 8

This guy. Still searching for an elusive win in the 2019 season. He won the All-Star race, sure, but you know he’s 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.

Bold NASCAR fantasy picks

Kevin Harvick

  • Wins: 2
  • Top 5 finishes: 7
  • Top 10 finishes: 18

You cannot keep this guy down. Every week he’s 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 he’ll beat that number by three on Sunday.

Erik Jones

  • Wins: 0
  • Top 5 finishes: 1
  • Top 10 finishes: 2

He may be out of the playoffs, but Jones still has a lot to prove. He’s been good here for his last two races, and it might take him a lot to get where he needs to be, but it’s not impossible. I think the 20 might have a few tricks up his sleeve now that the pressure is off.

Jimmie Johnson

  • Wins: 11
  • Top 5 finishes: 17
  • Top 10 finishes: 24

How do you leave Jimmie Johnson off the fantasy list at Dover? The answer is simple: You don’t. He’s made great strides since the playoffs began, which gives me a feeling that he’s going to have a good race on Sunday. It’s a bold prediction that he’ll win it all, but these are odds I’m willing to take.

Bonkers NASCAR fantasy picks

Aric Almirola

  • Wins: 0
  • Top 5 finishes: 2
  • Top 10 finishes: 3

As far as tracks go, this isn’t Almirola’s worst. However, his average finish here is still 16th, so I’m not counting on anything spectacular to occur on Sunday. The 10 has been on a cool streak since Daytona in July, and I just don’t see that heating up at Dover.

Clint Bowyer

  • Wins: 0
  • Top 5 finishes: 3
  • Top 10 finishes: 15

Bowyer finished 9th here in May, but that’s likely to be as good as it gets for the 14. It’s 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.

Ryan Newman

  • Wins: 3
  • Top 5 finishes: 7
  • Top 10 finishes: 14

It’s 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 don’t see it getting any easier this time around.
