Article: Fantasy NASCAR: Drivers on the Rise

Fresh off a trip to Pocono Raceway, the Cup Series heads to Michigan International Speedway this weekend for the Quicken Loans 400. At first glance, the wide surface of the D-shaped oval would seem to have little in common with the flat corners and triangle-shaped layout of Pocono, but in reality, races at both tracks can take on similar feels. Cautions can be few and far between at both Pocono and MIS, and fuel mileage is often the determining factor at both tracks. Meanwhile, both tracks produce very high speeds, and if fuel mileage isn't jumbling up the finishing order, a rash of engines failures probably is.

As a result, it is nearly impossible to find a driver without a few blemishes on their Michigan resume. In fact, only two drivers finished in the top five in both races at MIS last year, and only one driver has an active streak of three of more top-10s at the track. Granted, there are a few drivers that have been more reliable than most at Michigan, but unfortunately for fantasy owners, MIS is just the type of track where even a great driver can have a very bad day.
