The NASCAR 2019 All-Star Open will take place Saturday, May 17, at Charlotte Motor Speedway and with an incredibly talented field of drivers expected to compete, this latest installment of the Cup Series should be a fun one to watch.
Let's take a look at a few drivers to keep an eye on when putting together your fantasy lineup for this weekend's race.
Denny Hamlin is considered by many the early favorite in this race thanks to his recent form at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver won the All-Star Open in 2015 and has 13 top-10 finishes in his last 15 races at this track, including a streak of five straight.
Kevin Harvick, the defending race champion, is definitely worth keeping an eye on, as he's one of just two drivers in the field with multiple All-Star Open victories. The Stewart-Haas driver also has 12 top-10 finishes in his last 15 starts in Charlotte, including two second-place finishes in his last five.
Counting out Jimmie Johnson might not be the best idea. The Hendrick driver has eight career victories at Charlotte and four career All-Star Open victories. Johnson has also seen a good run of form in Charlotte recently, notching one win, three top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes in his last five starts on this track.
