Fantasy Preview: Pocono 8/3

This weekend, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Pocono Raceway for the 400.  Below are my fantasy picks for Sunday's race at the "Tricky Triangle."

Tier A
Kevin Harvick
Harvick has either run strong this season or he's run terribly.  I think Harvick will run well this weekend.  He runs well at Pocono, and he finished 14th in June.  He qualified 6th for this race, so I expect him to run up front most of the day.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Tier B
Jamie McMurray
McMurray qualified 8th for this race, and he should run strong on Sunday.  He got a top 10 in June, and I expect him to repeat that feat on Sunday.

Denny Hamlin
Hamlin has always run well at Pocono, and I expect him to continue to run well this weekend.  He starts 13th this weekend, but he is running without his crew chief who is serving a suspension.  Hamlin's team was penalized following last weekend's race at Indianapolis, and Hamlin will be looking to put that behind him in the Pocono Mountains.

Paul Menard
Marcos Ambrose

Tier C
Kyle Larson
I'm starting to think that there isn't anything this rookie can't do.  He picked up his first career pole for this race, and he dominated the Truck race on Saturday before his engine let go.  I would not be surprised if we celebrate this rookie's first career victory at the end of the day.
