Comments: NASCAR Picks for Pocono

Article: Party in the Poconos 400 Practice Recap: Drivers to Watch

The Sprint Cup Series heads to Pocono Raceway this weekend, and the track is one of the most unique on the schedule. It has a massive 2.5-mile distance to go along with a strange triangle-shaped layout. Throw in little banking around the entire track and three completely different types of turns, and good-handling cars are tough to come by at Pocono. In fact, drivers often aim to dial in their cars in at least two of the corners and simply hold their own in the other. As if the track's tricky layout wasn't out, the long lap times and long green flag runs that are prevalent at Pocono often bring pit strategy and fuel mileage into play. Races at Pocono tend to get knocked for being a bit boring, but it certainly isn't easy to win them.

From a fantasy standpoint, setting a roster for Pocono can also be difficult. There are only a handful of drivers that have been consistently great at the track, and even the best drivers have had their records at Pocono marred by bad finishes. Not to mention the fact that picking sleeper options to fill out rosters is often a hit-and-miss game. With track position, fuel mileage and all the other variables that go into running well at Pocono, a little luck could be a fantasy owner's best friend this weekend.
