Fantasy Preview: Atlanta 8/31

This Sunday, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the Oral-B USA 500.  The race can be seen on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. EST.  Below are my picks for the race.

Tier A
Kevin Harvick
Harvick won the pole for Sunday night's race, and he has been strong all weekend.  After dominating Saturday night's Nationwide Series race, Harvick will be looking for the weekend sweep on Sunday night.

Matt Kenseth

Tier B
Martin Truex Jr.
Truex is one of those drivers still looking for his first win of the season.  Truex is normally strong on the 1.5 mile tracks, and I expect him to run towards the front on Sunday night.

Brian Vickers
Vickers is also looking for his first victory, and he should be strong this weekend.  He qualified 19th, but he should finish well inside the top 15.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
Jamie McMurray

Tier C
Danica Patrick
Patrick finished 21st in this race last year, but she has been getting much better over the course of this season.  If she has some good luck on Sunday night, Patrick could finish with a top 20.

Jeff Burton
