Comments: Kobalt 400 Practice Recap: Drivers to Watch
Don't forget to read this weekend's Nascar picks.
All practice sessions are in the books, and the next time the Cup drivers take the track at Las Vegas will be for the start of Sunday's Kobalt 400. From a fantasy standpoint, one of the best things about Sunday's race is that practice times at 1.5-mile tracks like Vegas tend to be a decent predictor of what to expect on race day. This is particularly useful for identifying potential sleeper drivers. With that in mind, here is a closer look at a few drivers outside of the big names that could help out fantasy teams this weekend.
- Jamie McMurray, McDonald's/Cessna
- Kyle Larson, Target
- Brian Vickers, Aaron's Dream Machine
- Ryan Newman, Caterpillar
- Aric Almirola, Smithfield Foods
- Danica Patrick, GoDaddy.com
- Trevor Bayne, Motorcraft/Quick Lane
