Fantasy Insider: Sift Through The Big One To Find Some Daytona Sleepers

Welcome back, everyone, to Frontstretch.com’s Fantasy Insider. This weekend, NASCAR runs Saturday night at the historic Daytona International Speedway for the Coke Zero 400.

This weekend's event is much hotter, slicker, held at night, and 100 miles shorter. Many drivers have significantly different success levels in both events. So to see who you want to run with and which former multiple championship driver you need to avoid, read on in this week's edition of Fantasy Insider. Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Can Truex Get Revenge … And Save A Team At New Hampshire?

After a weekend filled with bumper cars and plenty of feuding, the next stop on the Sprint Cup schedule couldn’t be better. Several drivers are looking to extract some revenge after Infineon, and the one-mile, short track feel of the New Hampshire oval makes for the perfect payback venue.

This Sunday, NASCAR heads West, where the road course of Infineon will once again separate those who can really drive a race car from those who struggle when you throw a right-hand turn at them.

So read on to see which hidden gems are waiting out there and which popular underachiever you don’t want hanging around this Sunday. Read More »

While you take a minute to let that sink in, it's time to put that bad race behind us and move on to the next one, where I hope y’all do a little better at the big, fast 1.5-mile oval down in Texas. The fourth event on an intermediate in 2010 (albeit the first with the new spoiler) should give fantasy owners a bit of an edge; at this point, we've got a pattern forming over who’s got a handle for the cookie-cutter tracks.
