Fantasy Picks 2019 ~ Michigan 2
Let’s Go Bowling at the Glen
Show of hands... After the last few abysmal weeks for Chase Elliott, who really thought he could actually make it back to back wins at the Glen? One can raise his hand, as Vicq Ruiz picked this week’s race winner and picked up a nice 40-point payday for his Dawsonville’s favorite son pick. (It started as 49 points due to some fat fingers input...)
Kelly Meiste and Frank Buhrman finished right on his rear bumper and the 35 points earned helped Kelly narrow the gap behind points leader PattyKay Lilley.
We had no changes in the points standings only gaps closing between our competitors. We’ll see what Michigan brings this week.
For the full summary of race results and points standings check out the following:
Consumers Energy 400
The northern swing continues as the Traveling Road show returns to the Irish Hills of Michigan for 400 miles around the two-mile high banks.
Joey Logano (3 wins) had the low horsepower/high aero setup figured out when they came here just a few weeks ago. That win was about the last time he looked like he could find Victory Lane. Could this be a breakout week for him and put him on track to defend his Cup Championship? Kyle Larson also has three wins here as well.
Kevin Harvick (2) is the defending champ at this race, while Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Ryan Newman also have two wins each. Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch have also found success at MIS.
Chase Elliott had a heck of a streak going, having never finished outside the top 10... until the spring race here. Can he use the momentum from last week’s win to find Victory Lane? Martin Truex Jr. also runs strong here and his second place at the Glen may just what the Coach ordered.
So, who’s it going to be? Let’s see what our Fantasy Racers think about this week at Michigan.
So, good folks, we're back at Michigan... always one of my favorite tracks... possibly because in 1998 I played Fantasy for real dollars and won $2500 of them on this very race. (Never played for money again, so I'm WAY ahead of that game.) This week I'm dancing with the guy that brought me to the dance. I'll be riding with #4, Kevin Harvick and celebrating with Keelan in Victory Lane!
Think I've ridden the Truex horse long enough for this run, so let's go with Kyle Busch, who's due to have something go right after getting yelled at and wrecked so much at the Glen that he could have been a bowling pin. I say smoother sailing for #18 this week and gutter balls for the competition.
I think I will go with Joey Logano to win this Sunday at Michigan as he has won before and seems to do good there.
Michigan again this week, and a new first-time winner for the year! #20 Erik Jones has been running in the top 5 for some weeks now, so I think he due for a win this week!
much fun, but it's
Comfy in the bandwagon!
The #18 wagon.......
I'm pulling for Kevin Harvick to get some clean air this week and stay out front for a change. So, put me down for the #4 to top the charts in Michigan.
This horse named Kyle is going lame. Going to jump to Joey in the #22 this week.
Kyle has won 3 times at Michigan. Time for him to make it 4. I'll ride with him this weekend. #42 Kyle Larson

No one enjoys winning at Michigan as much as Brad Keselowski. No one is as tough to beat at Michigan as Brad Keselowski. He'll win up there again this weekend.
I’ll try the #19 this week.
