This weekend is the last stop on the #NASCARGoesWest tour. With Las Vegas, Phoenix in the record books, the haulers will be unloading Thursday at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontan,CA. The weather forecast for the three days that the teams will be on the race track is cool temps, overcast skies, and there is a possibility of some rain showers in the area!
Our Auto Club Speedway Picks
This week, after assessing the choices, we have a wide selection of drivers amongst The Rednecks in the fantasy league.
Garnering the largest support, four players, this week is “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski. Even though “Bad Brad” is winless in the first four races, that has not put a dent in the enthusiasm of Don The Engine Builder, A&M Aggie Sue, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, as well as Dan The Numbers Cruncher.
This week it is quite interesting in that that we have six (6) drivers with a rooting section of two players each! Listing the drivers alphabetically seems to be the way to go in this post!
Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Ol Skid-Marc fervently are backing “The Shrub”, “Rowdy”, aka Kyle Busch. Auto Club Speedway is the site of KyBu’s very first victory when he was driving the Hendrick Motorsports No. 5 Chevy. So the question begs to be asked; Can KyBu re-visit Victory Lane at Fontana?
The brother-sister duo of Jerry The Buschwacker and Zee, aka Sissy, are teaming up together in hopes that “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin, can, on short order, deliver a victory to them at Fontana.
El Cajon, CA native, Mr. Seven-Time, Jimmie Johnson, has support from Lonna The Quilt Angel and our leader, Kilimanjaro Bobby. Both are hoping that Mr. Seven-Time can drive his HMS Lowes Chevy into Victory Lane, hoist the hardware, and punch his ticket through to The Playoffs early in the season.
Still another CA homeboy, “Young Money”, Kyle Larson, has the support of Jim, aka Chiefy and Doug The Gandy Candy Man. Both men are hoping that “Young Money” can replay his performance from 2017!
Meanwhile, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff have put all their marbles into the marble sack of “Sliced Bread”, Joey Logano. Could this be the race that ol “Sliced Bread” slaps a little butter on both slices?
Lastly, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle and Carlton The Doorman are pulling for the 2017 Cup Champ, Martin Truex, Jr. Truex needs to let the big dog out of the bag soon if he is to mimic his 2017 performance!
Good luck to all!
Referencing the above-mentioned weather forecast for Fontana this weekend, I will leave you with the words of John and Michelle Phillips from 1965:
And the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk
On a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
On such a winter’s day
