Important Notes: FS1 continued with its terrible coverage for Fantasy NASCAR players in this practice, as they continually mentioned the 15-, 20-, and 30-lap averages, but never showed the chart. Martin Truex, Jr. was at the top of all of those averages, but that’s all we knew at the end of the practice. Thankfully, though, Mike Joy went on Twitter and posted a picture of the 20- and 30-lap averages. Cody Ware got into the wall late in practice and will likely have to go to a backup car.

Top 20-Lap Averages during the session:

  1. Martin Truex, Jr. (19.917 seconds)
  2. Aric Almirola (19.943 seconds)
  3. Kyle Busch (19.953 seconds)

As someone who has always been obsessed with numbers, Fantasy NASCAR has been the perfect fit with me. I pride myself on the quality of my analysis for each race, and am glad that I have been able to help others along the way. I've been a serious Fantasy NASCAR player for over 10 years now, and I'm just getting started.
