This week NASCAR makes its second trip to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the first time since the racetrack was built. I just checked the forecasted weather for this weekend at Vegas, it will be right at the 100-degree mark! Conditioning and hydration will be a key factor Sunday, in addition to having a fast hot rod!
Our Vegas Picks
It seems like the majority of The Redneck Fantasy League is thinking that maybe it is time for Kyle Busch to win a race in his hometown, Las Vegas. Almost one-third of this fantasy league is betting the farm that KyBu can lead the field to the checkered flag. The six players who are “rolling the dice” for KyBu this weekend are Carlton The Doorman, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Jim, aka Chiefy, Carole, aka Rudy, Linda B. The Cookie Mom, as well as Jeremy The Coach.
There are three drivers that have a cheering section of three players each this week. Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Bobby Blue Crush, as well as A&M Aggie Sue, are “rolling the bones” in support of Busch the Elder, Kurt.
Likewise, Linda R. The Lemonade Lefty, Amber The Extremely Lucky Cheddar Head, and Ol Skid-Marc are fully supporting “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick at Vegas.
Kathy The Church Forecloser, Jerry The Buschwacker, and Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff are hoping that “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski is on a hot streak and can go 3-for-3 and take home the hardware from Vegas.
Lastly, David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey and Dan The Numbers Cruncher are putting all their marbles into the marble sack of “Young Money”, Kyle Larson.
This week we have five players who are independent thinkers, or as I like to put it, five players who are in bidnez for themselves!
Good luck to all.
Looks like there will be a lot of “tumbling dice” this week! As they say, “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
