Greg’s hot streak continues. Kyle Busch’s first win of the season earns Greg’s fantasy team his third straight win in as many weeks. He was 0-for-8 prior to this streak, but now he’s really starting to come along. It’s not just his drivers winning, they’re taking residence in the top five of the finishing order too.
He had three of the top four finishers on Sunday with Brad Keselowski (3rd) and Matt DiBenedetto (4th) also up there. Then, Chris Buescher steals an eighth place run to get him four of seven drivers in the top eight of the final results.
CJ should have had a win from Kyle Larson but following his late race incident, he finished 19th. He did get a runner-up from Kevin Harvick and a sixth place result from Martin Truex Jr. Austin Dillon kept his hot streak going with a 10th place run but the rest of his drivers struggled.
Eric struggled too. Denny Hamlin was going to pick up where Larson gifted him but he too cut a tire and got into the wall and finished 12th. Joey Logano was a non factor all day in 17th with Bubba Wallace (26th) and Aric Almirola (29th) being non existent. He did have Chase Elliott (5th), Tyler Reddick (7th) and William Byron (9th) to help keep this from being too abysmal.
Now, it’s to Darlington. Harvick and Hamlin combined to win all three races last year and should be the favorites coming into the weekend. CJ also has Truex Jr. who he and Eric’s Chase Elliott battled for the win in the end of the Southern 500, but both crashed and gave Harvick the victory instead. Larson, has three top three results in his last four Darlington starts. Dillon, was runner-up to Harvick last September.
Byron, was fifth in the Southern 500 and has a top 10 in all but the first two races run this season. Reddick, runs the high line and entering a track that suits him best.
Combined, CJ and Eric have the drivers to beat. Can they slow Greg on Sunday afternoon?
