Fantasy Nascar DFS top plays for the Echopark Automotive Grand Prix
The first road course race of the season is here. In this article we’ll go over the Fantasy Nascar DFS top plays for the Echopark Automotive Grand Prix.
Circuit of the Americas, a 3.41-mile road course in Austin, Texas, will host this week’s NASCAR Cup Series race, the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix. This track is one of the most challenging and technical courses in the country. It features 20 turns modeled after some of the most famous corners from tracks around the globe. With significant elevation changes and a mixture of slow and fast corners, drivers will be put to the test as they navigate through this circuit.
The track is wide enough to allow drivers to try passes almost anywhere, which should make for some exciting racing. Pit strategy and track position will be crucial to success, and mistakes can be costly due to the long pit road and a loss of track position. This race will be the first road course visit of the season and the first of six road course visits this year, making it an important opportunity for drivers to gain momentum and rack up valuable points in the championship standings.
