NASCAR Fantasy Picks for Big Machine 400

Denny Hamlin took home the checkered flag in Sunday's Pocono 350 at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania. Now the NASCAR world turns its attention up west to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 Powered by Big Machine Records.

With Sunday's next NASCAR Cup Series race rapidly approaching with a 4 p.m. EST start time, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your fantasy lineup for the Big Machine 400 at the Brickyard in Indy.

Big Machine 400 Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this Sunday's Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 race with five or more appearances at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track unless otherwise noted.

Kevin Harvick
No driver has been better at Indy than Kevin Harvick over their last three races on this track. Over that recent stretch, Harvick has posted a 3.67 average finishing position with one win, two top-5 finishes and three top-10 finishes to show for it. As for his career résumé at Indy, Harvick boasts the best average finishing position (8.95), best top-20 finishing rate (94.74 percent) second-best top-5 finishing rate (36.84 percent), third-best winning percentage (10.53 percent) and the second-most laps led (321).

Kyle Busch
While Kyle Busch hasn't been nearly as sharp in his recent appearances at Indy as Harvick, his career numbers at this track are simply too good to ignore. Nobody has led more laps here than Busch (324), and he also boasts the second-best winning rate (13.33 percent), best top-10 finishing rate (73.33 percent) and is tied for the fourth-best top-20 finishing rate (80.00 percent).

Joey Logano
Joey Logano is our only fantasy pick from this week's lineup that has yet to take the checkered flag in Indianapolis. However, he does have fewer races here than both Busch and Harvick. Even without a win under his belt, though, Logano has been incredibly efficient. Logano has the second-best average finishing position (10.91), third-best top-5 finishing rate (36.36 percent) and third-best top-20 finishing rate (81.82 percent).
