Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly fantasy team update leaving Vegas and heading to Homestead

What a massive weekend for Eric in the top of his drivers shining. He had the 1-2-4-5 placed finishers which includes his pickup of Chase Briscoe last week. With 3 of Greg’s drivers having problems, Eric not only closed the gap significantly heading to Homestead, he’s the new points leader.

Eric heads to Homestead 400 points clear of Greg and 1,495 up front of CJ. Eric had 2,160 points alone in Vegas with CJ 1,080 and Greg 760.

Dixie Vodka 400 Preview:
Sunday’s race is a return to guessing as this is the first trip the NASCAR Cup Series has taken to the Homestead-Miami Speedway with the Next Gen. Can you take anything from years past and use it for this weekend?
The best way to handicap this race is to look at some of the past as well as using how both Darlington race fared this year. Homestead races a lot like Darlington in a sense that they’re somewhat similar shaped, both are ages surfaces that provide a lot of tire wear and the racing lines look similar.
Which is why you can look more at Darlington this season, moreso the May race there and use that data for this weekend’s picks.
Dixie Vodka 400 Top Stats:
· Hamlin beat the kids in 2020. The then 39 year old was one of only three drivers over the age of 28 in the top 10 in the Dixie Vodka 400. 24 year olds Chase Elliott and Tyler Reddick were second and fourth respectively. 26 year old Ryan Blaney was third. 25 year old Christopher Bell was eighth while 22 year old William Byron was ninth. The only other drivers in the top 10 was 36 year olds Brad Keselowski (10th) and Aric Almirola (5th), 35 year old Kyle Busch (6th) and 30 year old Austin Dillon (7th).
· Don’t expect overtime – 14 of the last 15 Homestead races ended on Lap 267.
· Ford has won 1 of the last 11 at Homestead.
· 7 of the last 9 winners came from the top 5 of the starting lineup.
Dixie Vodka 400 Live Trends:
