4 Tires & Fuel – Quaker State 400 (NASCAR DFS)

A couple years ago, I attended this race as I do every year. But, this race was special to me it was a memory I was going to share with my friends a month before I decided to settle down and get married. We get to Kentucky speedway hours before the race will start, of course a couple young men with testosterone high and eager urge for a cold beer want to party. So, we are walking around the parking lots looking for a group to tailgate with, and of course we found one. The first thing I noticed was that they was playing corn-hole so of course I’m an athlete I want to compete and play, and they was nice enough to encourage us to hang out with them, so we did. We are playing and having a great time, with these great bunch of people we met… then I noticed my friend starting to get a little aggressive over him losing at corn-hole keep in mind he has had a little too much to drink also, he missed the board 3 times in the row. I really want to say something to get him agitated even more but I have known this guy my whole life so I back off, then one of the guys we are playing with that we just met just starts giving it to him, I mean just trash talking him every single throw…so I have to use the restroom and as I make my way back from the restroom I noticed my friend and the guy that we were playing corn-hole with are  getting awful confrontational, there was finger pointing and shoving and next thing I know this guy literally suplexes my friend and then gives him the peoples elbow.
Yes, he really did that…it was awesome honestly. I guess this guy was a wrestling fan, he had to be. Well, I sprint over and we all eventually got in broken up before security got there and took us all to jail we decide to enter the race and go ahead and go to our seats. It is about an hour before the race starts, we finally get our friend calmed down and everything is fine by the time, and soon it is time to go racing. Finally, the green flag is getting ready to drop and I look over and our friend is passed out, I mean he is out cold. I don’t know if any of you guys have ever been to a race but it is super loud and you can feel the engines vibrate through your body the whole race, my friend was out cold for the first 50 laps! I have no idea to this day how anyone could sleep through that! If you guys are celebrating or just out to have a good time, do not be like my friend. Drink responsible and be safe!
This week we will head to Kentucky Speedway, a place that is very special to me. Kentucky speedway is a 1.5 tri-oval located in Sparta, Ky. It has 17 degrees banking in turn 1 and 2, 14 degrees in turn 3 and 4 and 8-10 degrees in the tri-oval. It is configured pretty similar to Texas Motor Speedway, if you decide to do your own research this week or whatever you prefer to do, I would suggest taking a look back at the results from Texas from this spring and also go back and watch last year’s Kentucky race as I will. This is my home track and just like the drivers when they go to their home track. I want perform at the highest level, hopefully one of us take home a lot of money this weekend. It would be really special to me if I won or someone else won a bunch of money this weekend, I would love to see that! With all that being said good luck everyone and I hope my knowledge and picks help you land in the green Saturday night!

Top Tier – Cash & GPP

Martin Truex Jr – ($10,400)
Is the king of the 1.5 mile tracks, he has led laps at every 1.5 mile track this year and I can’t see him in not being out front this Saturday night at Kentucky. In last two races at Kentucky, Truex has had a top 5 finish, a top 10 finish,and has led 46 laps. Truex is the Vegas favorite this week at 4/1 odds, Lock the 78 car into your lineup this week.
Brad Keslowski – ($10,100)
He isn’t the king of 1.5 mile tracks but he is the king of Kentucky. In 6 cup races here, Keslowski has won here 3 times. I have a hard time seeing Keslowski not running up front for most of the night, his worse finish is 33rd in the 6 cup races here, the other 5 races he has never finished worse than 7th. So he has a 90% chance to finish in the top ten and a 50% chance to win the race. In the past two races he has a win and a top 10 finish. My favorite play of the week and my pick to be in victory lane.

Mid-Tier GPP

Matt Kenseth – ($9,100)
The savvy veteran excels on tracks like this as he has won here in the past. In the 6 races that have taken place in the cup series at Kentucky, Matt Kenseth has finished every race in the top 10, and has not finished worse than 8th. He has an average start of 15 and an average finish of 5.17, makes for a great place differential play this week.
Ryan Newman – ($7,300)
Another savvy veteran who drove his way to a top 3 finish last year at the new repave. In the past two races Newman has a top 3 finish but he also has a top 20 finish, this makes him strictly a gpp play for me unless he has a poor qualifying effort.

Dark Horse GPP


Trevor Bayne –  ($6,900)
The fords have been fast all year long and as history states to me. This is a great track for Bayne in the past two races at Kentucky, Bayne has an average start of 22.5 and an average finish of 12. In those two races Bayne finished with an 11th place finish and 13th place finish respectively, he should make for a great value play this weekend.
David Ragan – ($5,400)
At one point last week I thought Ragan was going to take his car to victory lane, but at the restrictor plate tracks you just never really know what is going to happen. Ragan has competed in all the 6 cup races that have taken place at Kentucky, he has an average start of 28.5 with an average finish of 22.33, at the new the repave last year he improved 9 positions and finished 22nd!
Other top-tier drivers to consider:
Kyle Busch – ($10,200)
Kyle Larson – ($10,000)
Kevin Harvick – ($9,800)
Other mid-tier drivers to consider:
Joey Logano – ($9,000)
Ryan Blaney – ($8,700)
Jaime McMurray – ($8,500)
Other value drivers to consider:
Paul Menard – ($6,800)
Chris Buescher – ($6,400)
Cole Whitt – ($5,300)
