The Xfinity Series gets to race on the most-famous track in American motorsports this weekend as well, when the Pennzoil 150 from The Brickyard drops the flag at 3:00 p.m. from Indianapolis Motor Speedway. But instead of just turning left, they’ll be on the Indy road course that mostly uses the infield as well as the front straightaway.
There’s also no Kyle Busch or Matt DiBenedetto this weekend, so we break down some of the best picks to round out your roster below. You can set your lineup here.
Michael Annet ($8,200)
Started 18th and finished 12th in the last Xfinity race on a road course at Road America last year, and will begin second today. A pair of Top 12 finishes at Pocono shows he can drive a more technical course, but still has the horsepower to overtake and brake in Turn 1 on the road course.
Anthony Alfredo ($8,000)
Too much value to be below par on the board. Has improved on his starting position in his last four races, with three Top 10’s and averaging 46.25 points per race in those runs. The #21 Lucas Oil Chevrolet is running well, and the 21-year-old driver appears to have a bright future in stock car racing. Even if this is a road course, plenty of car here.
Ryan Sieg ($7,300)
Eleventh at Road America last year after starting 17th, starting in fourth position today, and can improve on his average of 24.7 fantasy points per race here. There’s enough horsepower in his car when he can keep it on the track, but previous success on the road courses matters as much here.
Jeb Burton ($7,200)
Sometimes it’s this simple: He’s on the pole on a road course. And he’s clearly got enough horsepower as he finished third after starting eighth at Talladega. That just might be enough for a part-time Xfinity driver making only his third start in the series this year. He’s looking for a full-time driving deal, and a good finish here might help him find it.
