After Martin Truex Jr. took the checkered flag at last Sunday's First Data 500 race, the NASCAR world is turning its attention toward the 2019 AAA Texas 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, on Nov. 1, 2019.
As we look ahead to Sunday's race, let's examine a few drivers to keep an eye on when building your fantasy team.
Kevin Harvick has dominated in his last five appearances at Texas Motor Speedway, placing in the top 10 in all five of those races, the top 5 four times and taking the checkered flag twice over that span. Harvick has also led for more laps (379) than any other active driver in their last five respective appearances at 146 laps led ahead of Ryan Blaney and his second-most laps led at 233.
Kyle Busch has historically been great at Texas Motor Speedway, placing in the top 20 in 23 of his 27 career races on this track. Busch has one win and five top-5 finishes across his last five performances at Texas Motor Speedway, and he has three wins here on his career. With 930 total laps led on this track, Busch trails only Jimmie Johnson (1,112) among active drivers participating in Sunday's race.
Erik Jones has the least experience at Texas Motor Speedway among the three drivers on this list by quite some margin, however, he has really made each of his six career performances on this track count. While he hasn't taken the checkered flag here, Jones has posted five top-20 finishes, four top-10 finishes and three top-5 finishes in his six total races on this track. With only one top-10 finish across his last eight races this season, Texas Motor Speedway could be the right track for Jones to battle his way back into contention for Sunday's checkered flag.
