Fantasy Preview: Indianapolis 7/27

This Sunday, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Indianapolis for the Brickyard 400.  Below are my fantasy picks going into the race.

Tier A
Jeff Gordon
This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of Gordon's win in the inaugural Brickyard 400, and he's hungry for a victory.  I wouldn't be surprised if he finds victory lane on Sunday after starting on the front row.

Kurt Busch

Tier B
Tony Stewart
Stewart is one of the best drivers when it comes to racing at Indianapolis, and he is still looking for his first win of the season.  He just won his first sprint car race after breaking his leg almost a year ago, and a win in Sprint Cup racing shouldn't be far behind.

Ryan Newman
Newman comes into this race as the defending champion.  Like Stewart, Newman is a native Hoosier who is still looking for his first win of the season.  Don't be surprised if Newman goes back-to-back at the Brickyard.

Paul Menard
Martin Truex Jr.

Tier C
Juan Pablo Montoya
Montoya returns to the site of his greatest heartbreak.  Montoya was always a force to be reckoned with at Indianapolis, and he returns looking for the victory.  The Team Penske IndyCar driver will come into the race with nothing to lose.  With no points on the line, Montoya will go all-out for the victory on Sunday.
