Fantasy NASCAR: Duck Commander 500 at Texas Driver Picks

Kevin Harvick 9 Harvick is at his best on the intermediate tracks and the No. We can't do this without using server rendering due to cross-browser quirks. Maybe that weird numbers voodoo can translate into a solid pick-me-up for your team? He finished 13th at Fontana and seventh at Martinsville. With his history on this track, expect him to be among the leaders in the race. Post navigation

Target node has markup rendered by React, but there are unrelated nodes as well. This is most commonly caused by white-space inserted around server-rendered markup. Render methods should be a pure function of props and state; triggering nested component updates from render is not allowed. If necessary, trigger nested updates in componentDidUpdate. Target container is not a DOM element. The node you're attempting to unmount was rendered by another copy of React. The node you're attempting to unmount was rendered by React and is not a top-level container.

Texas is his fourth-best track Sonoma, Richmond and Homestead rank higher. McMurray has the fourth-best average finishing position and he has a streak of three consecutive top finishes at the track.

It would be great for fantasy teams to be able to use an allocation with McMurray Saturday night. Vickers will be filling in for Tony Stewart again this week. After a slow start to the season, Vickers is starting to perform well with the No. He has the sixth-best average finishing position at Texas, so I would expect another solid run from Vickers this week.

Elliott has never competed in a Sprint Cup Series race at Texas, but the lack of track time has not stopped him from performing well at the other tracks he has raced on this season. My strategy for Fantasy Live when the series travels to an intermediate track is to select a combination of drivers who start up front with a good chance at leading laps and drivers who start towards the back with a good chance to improve their position in the race.

That is not the case this week. Most races on the intermediate track are miles and have laps. This week the race is miles and laps. That means there are bonus points available in Fantasy Live for leading laps and fastest laps.

It will be important to score as many of these bonus points as possible Saturday night. Brad Keselowski led of the in the last race at Texas. He had the most dominate car I have ever seen that did not end up in Victory Lane.

I am sure the team will bring back the same setup to the track this week. Keselowski probably will not be a popular pick and allow fantasy teams to gain ground on their competition. They have been the best drivers on the intermediate tracks this season and each is very good at Texas. It would not be a bad idea to build your team around these three drivers. Patrick has been qualifying horrible this season, but running well in the races. She has improved her position in every race that Kasey Kahne did not run her into the wall.

Vickers is a top driver with a top price. He is just too affordable to leave off your team. Dibenedetto has been running well this season on the intermediate tracks.

He has the 29th-best running position and the 26th-best finishing position. Not bad for a cheap driver. Solid picks again this week Chad…. I find it hard to argue with your picks…. It was included in a stretch of four wins in five races from June 28 to July Brad Keselowski is coming off a good two-race stretch. He finished fifth at Martinsville and ninth at California. Keselowski has six top 10 finishes in his last seven races at Texas, leading more than 20 laps in each of his last four starts.

Earnhardt has finished sixth or better in each of his last three races in Texas. He also has eight top 10 finishes in his last 10 races at the track. Winning here is familiar for him; he won this race back in Kasey Kahne qualified on the front row at Martinsville, but he eventually sunk toward a 22 nd -place finish.

He won this race back in , a time when he also won the pole. Considering Kahne starts at an average Can you deny Johnson a title at Texas?
