There was little doubt in Saturday's qualifying session about who would be leading the field to the green flag for the Brickyard 400. Kevin Harvick dominated each of the three knockout qualifying sessions, setting a new track record in the process.
The 2003 Brickyard 400 winner will have prime real estate on pit road and on the racetrack at a place where track position is key.
Harvick has been fast all season long, but his Rodney Childers-led team has struggled to be consistent on pit road. If the pit crew can keep it together throughout the 400 miles on Sunday, Harvick may be the one kneeling to kiss the bricks at the end of the day.
Not to mention, Chevrolet has won the last 11 Sprint Cup Series races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Harvick happens to have the Chevy bow tie on the front of his Stewart-Haas Racing car.
Driver #2: Brad Keselowski Indianapolis stats: 0 wins; 0 top 5s; 2 top 10s; Average finish: 14.5
While Brad Keselowski might not have the most impressive stats at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, his performance so far this weekend has been.
The driver of the No. 2 Team Penske Ford was third fastest in the weekend's opening practice, second quick in final practice and qualified third for Sunday's race.
The 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion is also driving to give his team owner and 15-time Indianapolis 500 winner Roger Penske his first Brickyard 400 trophy. Keselowski said the big win is "the last thing left on the Penske bucket list."
While Chevrolet has dominated at the Brickyard, Keselowski has shown his Penske Ford will perhaps provide the biggest obstacle to that 12th-straight win.
Look for Keselowski to have a big day at the 'Yard of Bricks' and lead to a strong day for your fantasy team.
Driver #3: Jimmie Johnson Indianapolis stats: 4 wins; 5 top 5s; 6 top 10s; Average finish: 15.6
Jimmie Johnson is only one of two drivers to score four Brickyard 400 victories, and on Sunday he has a great shot at earning win number five.
The Hendrick Motorsports driver won the 2012 Brickyard 400 and finished second to Ryan Newman last year, but also has three DNFs in his 12 starts at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. If that's not impressive enough, Johnson has led laps in each of the last six races at Indy, including 172 laps in the last two races.
The driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet will start Sunday's race from the 11th spot, but was fastest in Saturday's final practice session.
In a race that is shaping up as a Hendrick Motorsports (and Stewart-Haas Racing) -- Team Penske battle, Jimmie Johnson is a good driver to have on your roster on Sunday.
Driver #5: Juan Pablo Montoya Indianapolis stats: 0 wins; 1 top 5; 2 top 10s; Average finish: 20.3
For only the second time this season, Juan Pablo Montoya is back behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup Series car. And perhaps there is no better place for Montoya to get back in the mix and make an impact on your fantasy roster.
The IndyCar driver has always run well in the Brickyard 400, but has been kept out of Victory Lane due to two wrecks and an ill-timed speeding penalty.
This weekend, Montoya is on hand in part to do just what his Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski said; give Roger Penske his first Brickyard 400 victory. Montoya was sixth in Saturday's final practice session and qualified eighth for Sunday's race.
With nothing to lose and another Indianapolis victory to gain, Montoya might be a solid pick for your fantasy roster. In addition, by using Montoya, you would save one of the Sprint Cup regulars for use later in this stretch of 13 races.
As always, these are simply suggestions, so do your research, pick wisely and best of luck. If you put more faith in the Las Vegas odds, check out this week's 'Let it Ride' segment from NASCAR Race Hub.
