After the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard, NASCAR enters this week with drivers heading to the desert for the South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race starts at 7 p.m. EST on Sunday, Sept. 15, with NASCAR's biggest names ready to race toward victory lane.
With lots of options available, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your NASCAR fantasy team for this weekend.
Brad Keselowski has seen plenty of success in the past at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Over his last eight starts there, Keselowski has won three times, finished in the top-5 six times and been a top-10 finisher in all of them.
Kyle Busch is the points leader coming into the NASCAR playoffs and is coming back to his hometown track. Over his last seven starts in Las Vegas, Busch has finished in the top-5 four times. A homecoming in Las Vegas could put Busch back in the winner's circle come Sunday.
Martin Truex Jr.
Contrary to Busch, Martin Truex Jr. comes into the playoffs as one of the hottest drivers in NASCAR. In his last six starts, Truex Jr. has four top-5 finishes and five top-10 finishes. He also has won at this track before, back in March of 2017. Given his recent performance, Truex Jr. could continue to compete for the checkered flag this weekend.
