After two exciting races at Las Vegas and Phoenix, NASCAR culminates its Western Swing with a weekend race in Fontana, CA, the Auto Club 400. It is also an opportunity for the West Coast drivers to connect with some of their family and friends early in the season. More importantly some of the race teams may be soaking up a little sun and beach action on their down time prior to the race weekend.
Our Auto Club Speedway Picks
Nearly one third of the fantasy league is behind one of the Team Penske drivers, Joey “Slice Bread” Logano, this week. This week Bobby Blue Crush, Jim, aka Chiefy, A&M Aggie Sue, Linda The Cookie Mom, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, and yours truly, Leon The Most Humble Sheriff are all rallying behind the 2016 Daytona 500 winner this week. The Fords have been very strong both in qualifying and during the race so far this season. Can Logano seal the deal this week in SoCal?
There is another Ford driver that has a large contingency of rooters this week. Four players, Snoopy Dawn, Carole, aka Rudy, Doug The Gandy Candy Man, as well as Jeremy The Coach, are grouping together to support “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski in hopes that he can log his second victory of the season.
There are two drivers that have a rooting section of two players each.
Lonna The Quilt Angel and Skid-Marc are hoping that Martin Truex, Jr’s can put his Toyota Camry back into the winner’s circle for the second time in the last three weeks.
Lastly, both Zee, aka Sissy and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey think that Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, will drive his Hendrick Motorsports Chevy into victory Lane and hoist up the hardware!
For those counting, those players mentioned above total fourteen (14) players. That means that there are seven (7) players who are in bidnez for themselves this week!
Good luck to al this week!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’ GO RACIN’!
