Brad Keselowski 300x195 Fantasy Racing: Martinsville and the Chase for the Sprint Cup

As I sit at my in-laws this weekend, I definitely wish that I was about 45 minute’s north in Martinsville. Well at least I can participate in fantasy racing from the comfort of their couch. The race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup continues this weekend and we get closer to crowning a champion. Being from the south, right in the middle of NASCAR land, I am a huge Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan. After his victory at Michigan this year and his lead in the point standings I was sure this was his year. Unfortunately Dale Jr. had something working against him; I am one of his fans. Every team or person that I cheer for is inevitably going to lose (case in point: Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Bobcats, and the Baltimore Orioles.) The Chase is shaping up to have a great finish. With Jimmie Johnson on Brad Keselowski’s heels, it gets very interesting during the last couple of races.

One great thing about NASCAR is that it offers multiple chances for fantasy play. The guy’s at Fantazzle have put together some great games to satisfy any NASCAR fans craving for fantasy play. I love the salary and pick-em games that they offer weekly. With qualifying shaping up in a weird way NASCAR fans should look forward to awesome race.

The two Chase leaders qualified in two extremely different ways. Brad Keselowski qualified 32nd, but due to his terrible qualifying throughout the Chase it hasn’t seemed to faze him. I look for Brad to finish top 10 this week and continue his pursuit of the Cup. Johnson qualified 1st, this is an exceptional qualifying spot and will provide him a top 5 finish. Read more…
