Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly fantasy picks update from the ROVAL and a look ahead to Vegas

What a lucky end of the race for Greg as one could possibly have. He finished 1-2 and extends his points lead over Eric and CJ via his 12th victory of the season and having 4 of his drivers in the top 8 at the end. Eric had problems with 3 of his drivers that were all stout then having troubles in finishing 35-36-37 and CJ had 1 driver in the top 10 and 5 of his 7 finishing 16th or worse.

That has Greg with a massive lead with 4 races remaining.

Prime Sports NASCAR preview show

South Point 400 Preview:
Ford has been the most dominant team on the 1.5-mile track with 13 wins in 29 tries but were shutout a year ago. However, Toyota’s have dominated this track and Kansas (the closest resembling track) this season.
In the spring race, Toyota led 107 of the 274 laps (39%) that day. In Kansas 1, they led 171 of 267 laps (64%) and took home finishing spots 1-3-4-5-6. In Kansas 2, they led 94 of the 267 laps (35%) but finished 1-2-3-5.
South Point 400 Top Stats:
• 5 times has the winner of the 7th playoff race gone on to win the title later that season – 2007 Jimmie Johnson (Atlanta), 2011 Tony Stewart (Martinsville), 2016 – Jimmie Johnson (Martinsville), 2018 – Joey Logano (Martinsville), 2021 – Kyle Larson (Texas).
• Vegas has become a track that has produced a ton of lead changes lately with the last 6 featuring at least 20 including 7 of the last 8 overall.
• Joey Logano’s spring win in 2020 was the first time that a Cup winner was under the age of 30 in any of the previous races run at the track. Kyle Larson then won last year and was 28 at the time. This past spring, Alex Bowman was 29 in his spring race win this past year giving us 3 of the last 5 being under the age of 30.
South Point 400 Live Trends
• Here’s a strange but true stat, the second stage winner at Vegas has won seven times and was fifth in another in 10 tries. 2020 was the only outlier when Chase Elliott swept both stages in the spring race but cut a tire in the end. Kurt Busch snuck up and stole a win in the Fall race. That’s 4 of the last 6 races this stage produced the race winner too. So even though Alex Bowman didn’t score a stage point this past spring in this stage, it’s worth watching.
• Vegas is like Kansas and in the 3 combined races we had there this year, just once did the eventual race winner lead a lap in the first stage.
