Front Half Picks
Kevin Harvick is once again going to be popular and why shouldn’t he be? He’s on the pole and has been the best driver all year. He has massive laps led potential and is always a threat to have a bunch of fastest laps as well. When we look at his history on this track, we see him placing in the Top-3 in 5-of-10 races since 2015. In 2018, we saw him start in the 1st position, finish in 1st, and rack up 101.25 DraftKings points.
Ryan Blaney continues to drive like an absolute maniac and showed off incredible talent last week after he led for 150 laps and scored a whopping 112.50 DraftKings points. While I think we basically just saw the ceiling of Blaney, there is still a lot to like out of a driver with that potential. Dating back to 2015, he’s finished inside the Top-10 at Kansas Speedway in 5-of-9 races.
One of my favorite drivers for this 1.5 Mile track will be discussed at length in Discord. I don’t want to write it in here. Massive upside!
Back Half Picks
Ryan Preece stands out due to his 35th starting position and scoring floor that is built in due to his price tag and position. He has plenty of upside and could finish 10-12 spots higher than where he starts, giving you a solid 10-12 points floor with Preece on DraftKings. Side note, he has raced here twice in 2019 and finished 12th and 25th in those two races. Hard not to like him this week.
Clint Bowyer seems like an absolute steal though at $7,500 when you take his position and track history into account. In the last five races here at Kansas Speedway, Bowyer has finished 8th, 5th, 13th, 15th, and 19th. He basically is all upside unless he wrecks.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has decent history here and is a cheaper option with upside. Anytime he’s in the mid-20’s or higher he’s a nice GPP option for DFS due to his massive range of outcomes that inherently always suppresses his ownership.
Cole Custer, Tyler Reddick, and Christopher Bell are all young drivers with plenty of upside. I am absolutely loving the entire 19-25 positioned drivers this week and will certainly be showing my RONIN Tier members how to target them in my Tiered MME Rankings as well as my Single Entry Tiered Rankings.
