2020 INDIANAPOLIS MOTOR SPEEDWAY, INDIANAPOLIS – BIG MACHINE HAND SANITIZER 400

They made it through the whole Pocono weekend with only some delays while one series got pushed out a day. I still don’t think this is the best idea in the world and haven’t had any comments contrary to my feelings on this.

INDIANAPOLIS – BIG MACHINE HAND SANITIZER 400

This week the series heads to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the running of the Indianapolis – Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400. This is a long flat track which will play a little bit like Pocono did other than the fact that the corners will all be the same. A little bit easier for the teams to get the cars handling well. I think the issue is going to be the temperatures and how that will affect the grip on the track surface.

Kevin Harvick: I’m picking Kevin to pick up his third career win at Indy this weekend. He was good in both races at Pocono, so this team should have a good start on getting their cars handling where they want it this weekend too. He has the two wins and has finished in the top ten in thirteen of his nineteen starts here.

Denny Hamlin: Denny, once again, should be Kevin’s fiercest competition this week. Although never having one here yet, Denny has eight top ten finishes in his fourteen career starts. After winning on Sunday at Pocono this team will be very hungry trying to win two in a row and for the first time at Indianapolis.

Kyle Busch: Kyle has two wins at this track and had lead more laps here than any other active driver. However, this team hasn’t been able to put a full race together as often as they would like and after the horrible finish they had on Sunday they will be chomping at the bit to get back on track and show that they can put that whole race together.

Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie leads all active drivers with four wins at The Brickyard. The problem is he is either very good or he really struggles from the get go. In his eighteen starts he has the four wins but has only finished in the top ten three other times. Which type of car will they take of the truck this weekend?

Matt Kenseth: Matt is my dark horse this week. In his five years with Joe Gibbs Racing, Matt came away with four top five finishes. Last year when filling a spot for Roush/Fenway Racing he came away with a twelfth place finish. He ran well at Pocono last weekend and if things fall right for this team they could find themselves in victory lane.

Joey Logano: Joey is another driver looking for his first win at Indy, but he has run very well here coming away with a runner-up finish in last year’s race. In fact, over the past seven races Joey has finished runner-up twice, has four top five and six top ten finishes. Those are pretty good stats for this track.

Brad Keselowski: Brad won this race two years ago and finished runner-up the year prior to that. Now that he is running well with a new crew chief he could win here again. They didn’t run as well as they would have liked at Pocono last week, but this track will be very similar on both ends, so the crew chiefs should be able to get the cars handling much better this weekend.

Clint Bowyer: Though not great at this track, Clint has been pretty consistent. His best finish was a fourth place and he did finish fifth here in his last two starts, so this team is on the right track to improving each year. He could be a surprise this weekend as we know the Stewart-Haas teams have shown the speed to win this year.

Kurt Busch: Kurt is another driver still looking for his first win at this track and who hasn’t been real stellar here throughout his career. However, he did run pretty well at Pocono last weekend and this team has looked better this year than they did last year. I think Kurt could come away with at least a top ten finish this weekend.

Ryan Blaney: Ryan has only run five races at this track and has lead laps in the last three. He ran well at Pocono last weekend and this team seems to be getting better every week. With teammates, Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski, he should be able to get a lot of good advice on running on this track and that could be the difference between winning and losing this week.

None of them impressed me much at Pocono last week. I think Newman should be okay and Jones could run really well in a Gibbs car. As for Byron, I’m not sure how he will run without any practice time and only 2 previous races here.

First time subscriber. I like what’s going on here but taking some time adjusting to the navigation on the site. You guys should combine forces with the “monster” fantasy sites! I was up big on NBA before COVID.

Good day all!
Jeff between Kyle and Kurt, who would be the best for points?
Fantasy Live. Thank you. Happy 4th July
