Expert DFS Premium and Sleeper Picks


2017 Coca Cola 600

Charlotte Motor Speedway

May 28, 2017

Our Fantasy NASCAR picks are heading East this week – to the Tar Heel  State for the Coca Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, another 1.5 mile track, in Concord, NC.  Martin Truex has been riding high at the Coca Cola 600 for the past two years leading 523 out of 800 laps.  Last year he took the checkered and led for all but 8 of the 400 laps –  a record at the Coca Cola 600.  He also recorded the fastest-ran Coca Cola 600 in history at an average speed of 160.655.  While Furniture Row Racing had their first Coca Cola 600 victory last year, Hendricks Motorsports enjoys the most team success with 11 wins.  Chevrolet takes top spot for manufacturer with 23 wins at the Coca Cola 600.

We’re tentatively going with Martin Truex this week for the top DFS NASCAR Premium Pick but we’ll have to wait until Thursday evening to see what the practice speeds are in qualifying (click here).  Remember, the Drivers with the higher practice speeds will be the ones more likely to score you some Fantasy NASCAR points for fastest laps:)
