Comments: NASCAR Picks for Charlotte


ARTICLE: Coca-Cola 600 Practice Recap: Drivers to Watch

Coming off the short, 90-lap format of the All-Star Race last weekend, the Cup Series will shift gears completely for this weekend's Coca-Cola 600. Although both races are held at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the similarities end there. While the All-Star Race is all about a series of short dashes, Sunday night's race is a test of endurance. The 600-mile event is the longest of the season, and the extra 100 miles at a fast track like Charlotte can take a toll on both drivers and their equipment. From keeping up with the changing track conditions throughout the marathon-like race to having a car that can handle the long green flag stretches that tend to occur, there is a lot that goes into a successful run in the Coca-Cola 600.

For fantasy owners, building your lineup around drivers that have been successful at Charlotte is obviously a smart starting point. However, it is also important to know which drivers have been particularly successful in the Coca-Cola 600, especially when you are talking about potential sleeper candidates. After all, the race is a different animal than the 500-mile event held at the track in the fall, and Sunday night's race tends to favor those drivers that have a knack for staying out of trouble and taking care of equipment. With all the attrition that occurs throughout the night, a driver that normally finishes around the top 20 can creep towards the top 15, turning a mediocre fantasy option into a solid one.
