Prime Sports NASCAR – Fantasy report following Martinsville

CJ and Eric had another great week while Greg’s rough season continued during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series rain delayed Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500. Combined, CJ and Eric took the entire top seven of the finishing order while Greg’s top finisher was Kyle Busch in 10th.

Greg had four of his drivers between 10th and 15th, but that only got him 60 points.

Eric took three of the top four finishing spots and four of his drivers in the top six to score 170 overall points on Sunday which was good enough for second best among the three.

CJ though took the win again with Martin Truex Jr. to earn his fourth victory of the season. Truex, passed Eric’s Denny Hamlin for the lead with 16 to go and never looked back. Eric’s other driver in Chase Elliott later passed Hamlin for second while his surprise of the season in William Byron settled for fourth.

CJ’s lead extends to 60 points now over Eric while Greg trails the lead by 545 heading to Richmond this weekend.

With this being another 750 track, Eric and CJ should be among the ones to beat again. Greg’s best hope is Keselowski winning for a second straight year on the .75-mile Virginia race track.
