After Kyle Busch took home the victory in theÂ âTicketGuardian 500Â last week, NASCAR fans and fantasy players alike are looking ahead to the Auto Club 400. Let’s discuss a few guys to consider for your fantasy lineup this week.Â
Keselowski has only finished outside the top-10 three times this season, one of them being last week in Phoenix. The good news is that in the two prior times he finished outside the top 10, heÂ won and finished second in the following race.Â Keselowski also won this race back in 2015.Â In his last four appearances at this track, he has notched anÂ average of aÂ fourth-place finish.
Busch is coming off a big,Â yet predicted win,Â in last week’s race in Phoenix. He has been dominant in 2019 thus far, securing an average finish of third place. Busch has won this event twice before, and since 2015 he has won back-to-back races three separate times.Â So anÂ Auto Club 400Â win wouldn’t beÂ new territory for him.Â
This is a bit of a long-shot pick here, but it’s hard to discount a legend like Johnson, even if he hasn’tÂ won since 2017. He has finished in the top 10 in 50 percent of his races in 2019 andÂ has won this race four times in his career, the last one coming in 2016. He also has six wins overall at this track and a top-10 finish in 13 of his last 16 appearances here.Â
