Fantasy NASCAR

2015 NASCAR Preview

Here we go.

The 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup series is almost here. Saturday we start out the year with the Sprint Unlimited. I think this race is for those who can’t wait until some real important racing gets underway. That for me will be this coming Thursday when the Budweiser Duels are run. This is when I get really interested in the season. I know that there is qualifying on Sunday for the Daytona 500, but that only sets the top two positions and we all know that it doesn’t really matter where you start at Daytona, it’s whether or not you can avoid the big wreck and put yourself in position to win the Great American Race.


Once again I am running a Yahoo Fantasy Racing League. The league is almost full so if you want in get signed up as soon as you can. The Group ID is 4143 and the password is harvick.

Last year was the first year of the new championship format and it was more exciting than I thought it was going to be. I just wish they wouldn’t have one race decide the eventual champion. I do believe that Kevin Harvick deserved to win the championship and he was the best driver on the track week in and week out last year. I just think that a blown tire, accident, or blown engine will knock out a deserving driver in the not so distant future with this system and it is hard to fathom a driver running so well all year and not winning a championship because of one race in 36.


Come back next Friday night to see my picks for the Daytona 500 and let’s get this season started!

Good luck to all of you fantasy race team owners and remember, I am here to give you the best advice I can. It might not be right all of the time, but I do base my opinions on more than just intuition. I do the research and will not just give you an answer to your question, but I will also give you my reasoning behind my answer. So, don’t be afraid to ask questions. I try to answer every question within 24 hours of it being asked.
