We are crushing it! We are top 99.69% on Nascar.com. Let’s keep it going.

Jimmie Johnson is a must start here, one of his best tracks and he has the speed this weekend.

Kurt Busch and Martin Truex are not going anywhere on our rosters with a now combined $9 in the bank on them. Doesn’t hurt that they are flying once again.

Denny Hamlin is flying, a must start if you can fit him in. I sadly can not in my personal setup.

Carl Edwards is showing speed again after winning last week, seems like he might finally have his Toyota figured out.

Kyle Busch, still “cheap” coming back from injury, only Kurt Busch and Jimmie had faster 10 lap averages in 2nd practice*. Keep gaining money in the bank on him as well.

Caution: Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart are just not showing any speed. Beware the “value trap” here based on qualifying. I want Kyle Larson to be a pick but his practice speeds make his qualifying effort look unsustainable.

Speed on the cheap: Brian Scott qualified 27th, but was in the top 15 in 2nd practice*. He has also won a truck race here. A must start for only $7.75.

*No driver ran 10 consecutive laps in final practice, so the best data we can go off of is 2nd practice.

Ideal lineup:

Jimmie Johnson
Kurt Busch
Martin Truex
Brian Scott
Kyle Busch
