Going out on a Shrub
Today the NASCAR boys head to New Hampshire. I'll be up against RYR28 in the fantasy league. He has been doing much better here lately. Funny thing is, this improvement came after he dropped all his Yates drivers.
Here is the competition for today.
RYR28 has a better average starting spot than I do. His drivers roll off second, third and ninth. My guys will start the race in fourth, sixth, and seventh. Should be a good race at the start with all the drivers being in the top 10.
The one change to my lineup is the benching of Mark Martin and the running of Kyle Busch. Kyle has been doing pretty well these last couple of races and would have done well last night in the BUSCH race had it not been for a caution. Martin has been kind of average the last several races (he starts 13th in today's race).
The big danger for me is Jeff Burton. The man is going to win a race here soon. Brian Vicker's doesn't scare me too much. He has run well of late but just doesn't seem to have what it takes to knock one home. Reed Sorenson is good Georgia boy, but I don't think New Hampshire is going to be his kind of track.
I think I'll win today's race. BBuck is going to beat Tru-Jr-Fan (though I wish he wouldn't) and Super_D gets a free ride today. This means I probably won't gain anythihng in the league standings.
