NASCAR Fantasy Picks for Quaker State 400

Cole Custer took home the checkered flag in last Sunday's 2020 Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart at Kentucky Speedway. Now the NASCAR world turns its attention south the Texas Motor Speedway for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 in Fort Worth, Texas.

With Sunday's next NASCAR Cup Series race set to follow this year's All-Star Open & Race on Wednesday, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your fantasy lineup for this year's O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 in Texas.

Quaker State 400 Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this Sunday's O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 race with three or more appearances at the Texas Motor Speedway track unless otherwise noted.

Matt Kenseth
There's a lot to like about Matt Kenseth's history at Texas Motor Speedway. With 30 career performances under his belt on this track, Kenseth boasts the second-best average finishing position (9.47), second-best top-5 finishing rate (63.33 percent) and the second-best top-20 finishing rate (90.00 percent). He also has two wins here, bringing his fifth-best winning rate to 6.67 percent.

Kevin Harvick
Kevin Harvick also has an impressive career résumé on this track, but his recent performances here are what should really be grabbing your attention. Nobody has been better at Texas Motor Speedway over their last six races than Harvick, who boasts a ridiculous three wins and field-best 2.83 average finishing position over that span. Harvick has also led a field-best 498 laps and placed in the top-10 spots in all six of those past results.

Kyle Busch
Kyle Busch hasn't been quite as hot as Harvick here as of late, but he does still boast the second-best winning rate in Fort Worth at 10.71 percent. Busch has also led the second-most laps (948) with a tie for the fourth-best top-5 finishing rate (42.86 percent), fifth-best top-20 finishing rate (85.71 percent) and the sixth-best average finishing position (11.57) here.
