Fantasy Picks 2019 ~ Dover 2
Bank of America ROVAL 400
The 29th Race of the season saw the Traveling Circus road racing on the Charlotte ROVAL. Road races are often crap shoots as the right turns and tight quarters can often create a wide variety of results. Adding to it that the race had been moved up in the schedule a week to make it an elimination race added to the pressure.
After all the pushing and shoving and spinning and water bottle throwing was over it was Chase Elliott in Victory Lane, much to joy of Kelly Meiste, Vicq Ruiz and Frank Buhrman who had him picked this week. Kelly’s forty points allowed him to open the gap up slightly back to second place PattyKay Lilley. Vicq used his forty points to move alongside PattyKay into a tie for second. Behind them we find another tie between Berra Nordin and Hal Ashburn. 8 long months of racing and we have two sets of two running side by side. Now that’s pretty cool!
The remainder of the points standings remain the same. For the full summary of race results and points standings check out the following:
It’s on to the Monster Mile for another 400-miler at Dover for the thirtieth race of the season. This is also the first race in the second round of Eliminations. Aric Almirola, Eric Jones, Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman failed to make the cut so we’ll see if any our Fantasy Racers will pick them up going forward.
The field will be using the 750HP/No Ducts package. It’s the same one Chase Elliott won in last week. Speaking of Chase he is the defending champ of this race. Other winners include Martin Truex Jr. (3), Kevin Harvick (2), Kyle Busch (2), Brad Keselowski (1). Non-Chasers who have won here include Jimmie Johnson (9) and Kurt Busch (1). Kyle Larson and Joey Logano have had good finishes but have yet to get to meet Miles in Victory Lane.
Dover is a tough and demanding track and like Rowdy Burns said last week, “You can’t win the Championship here, but you sure can lose it here.” It was true at the ROVAL last week and still true at Dover this week.
It should be an interesting
Let’s see how our Fantasy Racers think things will shake out on Sunday. Take it away PattyKay!
Dover is a tough, ugly track to race on... one of the few I was happy to see shortened. I think the guy I already have is as good there as anyone on the "Monster Mile" so I'll ride another week in the #19 with Martin Truex Jr.
My pony ran pretty well last week, so he can join Truex in the two-in-a-row club. Ya think "Million Dollar Bill's Boy" would be a cool name for a thoroughbred? Let's see if Chase Elliott can make me look good twice.
With driver's going all out to win not only the stages, but the overall victory seems to have them more exuberant than usual this time of year. Very hard to pick a winner because of that and because of all the rule changes. However, I think I will go Happy Harvick in that #4 to take the black and white checkered flag first at Dover!
Back to the Monster mile we go!! Last time we went here we saw MTJ win and my pick Kevin Harvick finish p4! So my plan this time is to Go with him again and hope some of you take MTJ or Chase E or one of the Penske boys!! So I'm sorry #4 Kevin Harvick but I'm going to pick you again with the hope that it won't jinx you!!
it ride, dealer
Keep my chips on the 9 spot
The odds are with Chase
I'm putting my money on Truex for another win this week.
Put me down for Denny Hamlin, #11.
Staying with the 42.
J. L. Steele
It's time for him to make his move. Brad Keselowski
Let’s shake this up with Joey Logano for the win.
