To help you draft your team this week, here are five fantasy NASCAR sleepers for the 2014 Brickyard 400.
In his two races at the Brickyard, Almriola has racked up a top-20 finish both times. He finished 19th in 2012 and 17th in 2013. Double-A will be a great sleeper to grab this week as a second driver.
Before Biffle’s 24th place finish at the Brickyard last year, he recorded five straight top-10 finishes here. He has proven that he can compete on the prestigious track. Biff seems to always fly under the radar, but this is one week to keep a close on the veteran.
Stewart won’t be on many people’s radar this weekend, because he is currently 21st in the Sprint Cup Standings. Luckily, he has always done well at the Brickyard. He has an average finish of 7.93 on this track and has two career wins, including 227 laps in front of the pack.
Newman has six straight top-20 finishes in Indy, including two straight top-seven finishes. Most are forgetting that the veteran even won this race last year. He always performs well here and the veteran will be a safe bet to once again crack the top-10.
Gordon has four career wins at the Brickyard. He also has six top-10 finishes in his last seven races and Gordon has owned this track. Look for JG to be a serious contender all afternoon long this Sunday.
