Comments: NASCAR Picks for Darlington

There's no need to delve too deep into last weekend's race at Talladega. It was as rough as fantasy owners feared, and recapping it will just bring back bad memories. Not to mention that the best way to recover from the carnage is to pile up some points this weekend at Darlington Raceway. The track is considered NASCAR's original superspeedway, and a win in Saturday night's Bojangles Southern 500 is one of the most-coveted accomplishments in the Cup Series. If there were majors in NASCAR, this race would be one of them.

The race's significance is actually great news for fantasy owners because the elite drivers in the series tend to be at their best. Of course, Regan Smith's victory last season would seem to go against that theory, but let's face it, the 2011 season was a wild one. In addition to Smith grabbing the win at Darlington, Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 and Paul Menard won the Brickyard 400. Those type of monumental upsets don't happen often, and owners should be confident that the big names will flex their muscles Saturday night.
