This week the haulers only have a short jaunt of about 300 miles southeast from “Sin City”, Las Vegas, to “The Valley of The Sun”, Phoenix, for this race this week. ISM Raceway is actually about 20 miles west of the downtown district of Phoenix in the city of Avondale, AZ.
OUR PHOENIX PICKS
It appears that a number of our brothers and sisters in the fantasy league did a little homework over the off season. With nearly one third of the fantasy league jumping on the “Freaky Fast” Kevin Harvick bandwagon, that tells me that many have realized that Harvick knows the fast way around this lightning fast one mile facility! Well, for sure Jim, aka Chiefy, Edie The Las Vegas Super Star, Carlton The Doorman, Kathy The Church Forecloser, and of course, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff figured out that when Harvick unloads at Phoenix he is the man you must beat!
There are three drivers that have a pair of rooters in their corner at this newly reconfigured facility.
Carole, aka Rudy and Wild Bill The Pretzel Man would love to see “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski drive his Team Penske Mustang back into Victory lane this week.
Meanwhile, Snoopy Dawn and David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey are fully supporting Kyle Busch this week.
Rounding out our selections, we see that Linda B. The Cookie Mom has partnered up with our resident accountant, Dan The Numbers Cruncher. Both players are giving “Young Money”, Kyle Larson, some love at Phoenix.
It maybe that the seven players not mentioned above, and have held out for their individual favorite driver at Phoenix, are thinking that they will bound mightily ahead of the rest of the group by being in bidnez for themselves this week!
We shall see how that logic prevails when the Sun sets at ISM Raceway.
FYI: For the second week in a row Your Most Humble Sheriff will be heading to Avondale to cover the NASCAR race, and photograph it for my websites!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR BELTS TIGHT, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
