We’re at New Hampshire Motor Speedway–otherwise known as Loudon–this weekend for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. Yes, this race is only 301 miles in length, as Loudon is a flat, one-mile track where we often see many comers and goers. That makes predicting the finish order of this race even more difficult than usual, but there are always some faces that constantly make their way to the front at this race track.

There are quite a few statistics that go into the Power Index formula, including recent performance both overall and at New Hampshire specifically, similar track performance, projected strength of the car, practice speeds, starting position, and a few other variables.

Here’s a quick overview of the Power Index number: essentially, zero (0) is considered average; the more negative a number is in the Power Index, the stronger that driver is considered in the Fantasy NASCAR world. The opposite holds true as well: the more above zero a driver is, the worse he is considered for Fantasy NASCAR that week.
