Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly fantasy team update from Bristol and heading to Texas

Like our weekly picks, Eric scored a massive victory here via Chris Buescher’s triumph in Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops Night Race. It was his 10th win of the season and a week after having 4 drivers in the top 10 at Kansas, he did so again in Bristol including 3 of the 4 in the top 6.

Greg got the winner right last week with Bubba Wallace in a 1-3-4 effort with one of them in Alex Bowman also leading the most laps. But what kept him from a near perfect day was having the bottom 2 finishers too. He also had 25-29-30-32 in Bristol with 1 car in the top 5 and 2 total in the top 10.
