Fantasy Insider: Making Michigan Work For You

Fantasy Insider: Making Michigan Work For You

To be perfectly honest this week, who to pick or not pick on my NASCAR fantasy team hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind. In fact, it’s been pretty far back there, following the aftermath of the accident between Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward, Jr. Saturday.

Who’s Hot & Who’s Not In NASCAR: Watkins Glen – Michigan Edition

A win from an underdog is the worst possible outcome for the slew of drivers floating around the playoff wildcard bubble, and that’s exactly what happened at Watkins Glen International Raceway.

Thinkin’ Out Loud: Watkins Glen A Mix Of Tony’s Tragedy, AJ’s Triumph

Key Moment – On lap 78, Josh Wise stopped in the grass on the inside of the exit of the Bus Stop. Rather than throw a local caution to give Wise an opportunity to refire the car and continue on, NASCAR threw a full-course caution. As a result, AJ Allmendinger and Marcos Ambrose drew immensely closer to being able to stretch their fuel to the finish. The resulting chaos on the restart brought another caution flag and the two leaders were assured ... Read More »

Tracking The Trucks: Dillon Takes Pocono Mountains 150

In a Nutshell: Austin Dillon took control at Pocono when Kyle Larson’s engine went south, then survived a flurry of late restart battles with Clint Bowyer to win his first Truck Series race since Eldora last July. Dillon, who hadn’t won in any of NASCAR’s top three series since then, prevailed in an event that mostly showcased the sport’s two main Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year candidates instead of Truck Series regulars. Johnny Sauter, pushing Dillon to the front ... Read More »
