I will be looking at my fantasy team each week in anticipation of that weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. I use Yahoo! Fantasy Auto Racing, so I'll be setting up my driver choices as Tier A, B and C. So let's get started!
Johnson has been so close to getting the win in the past few weeks. He was outrun by Kurt Busch last week, and he had tire problems just laps from the finish in California, so he's going to be hungry to get his first victory of the season.
Newman has really surprised me at Richard Childress Racing this season. He's been a lot stronger than I was expecting; maybe Stewart-Haas was holding him back. I think Newman should run strong this weekend, and I wouldn't be surprised if he finishes in the Top 10.

Dillon hasn't finished lower than sixth in all four Nationwide races he's driven at Texas. He also ran both Sprint Cup races at Texas last season, so he has a lot of laps under his belt. He's been strong every week this season, so I think he'll do well this weekend. Don't be surprised if he's fighting for the win at the end of the race on Sunday.
My pick to win the Duck Commander 500: Jimmie Johnson
