Fantasy Preview: Kentucky 6/28

This weekend, the Sprint Cup Series heads under the lights at Kentucky Speedway.  The Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts is Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EST on TNT.  Read on to see who I'm picking this weekend!

Tier A
Jeff Gordon
Gordon has been very strong this season, and he currently leads the points standings.  I expect him to run strong this weekend, and he might be able to pick up his first career win at Kentucky.

Tier B
Paul Menard
Menard has been pretty consistent this season, and this weekend should be no different.  Menard finished in the Top 15 two years ago at Kentucky, and I expect more of the same this weekend.

Jamie McMurray
McMurray was fast during this weekend's practice sessions, and he qualified eighth for the race.  The Ganassi cars have speed this weekend, and he won't have far to go to find the lead.

Casey Mears
AJ Allmendinger

Tier C
Cole Whitt
Whitt has shown flashes of speed this season, but starting him in fantasy won't bring much.  I'm hoping he can get a top 25 finish.  He was 25th fastest in final practice, so it seems like he's on the right track.
