4 months agoChase Elliott had a chance to win Wednesday's Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway, but contact with Kyle Busch put Elliott into the wall late, ending his race and leading to a 38th-place finish. After a fourth-place run in Sunday's return to racing, Elliott had high hopes for Darlington, but he will now have to turn his attention to Charlotte Motor Speedway. Elliott won last year's race on the road course at Charlotte but has come up short at the main track, though he does have a pair of top-fives, including a fourth-place showing in last year's 600. The Hendrick Motorsports star should be considered one of the favorites when the Cup Series picks back up on Sunday.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR

4 months agoA promising race for Stewart-Haas Racing driver Clint Bowyer didn't end as well as he'd hoped in Wednesday's Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway. Bowyer led a race-high 71 laps and won the first two stages of the race, but Bowyer got into the wall during the third stage and faded to a 22nd place finish. Bowyer's now got just two top-10 finishes in six races this season, but will look to get back on track in Sunday's Coca-Cola 600. Bowyer's won a race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but he's also got just five top 10s in 26 races there.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR

4 months agoHendrick Motorsports driver and seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson ran well in Sunday's return to racing before crashing out, which meant he had to start Wednesday's Toyota 500 from the 37th position. But Johnson steadily made his way through the field, ultimately finishing in eighth place, making for a nice fantasy day due to his place differential. Johnson's shown speed in 2020 after a pair of winless seasons, and he'll have a chance to continue this recent improvement in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, a track he's won at eight times.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR

4 months agoStewart-Haas Racing's Kevin Harvick didn't manage to sweep this week's NASCAR Cup Series races at Darlington Raceway, but Harvick did come away with a third-place finish after starting 20th. The former Cup Series champion led 10 laps on Wednesday night but came up short in a race that ended early due to rain. Next up for Harvick is the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, a race he's won twice but has been hit-or-miss at since joining SHR. Harvick has almost always been a favorite anytime he's driving a Cup car, but his last win in the 600 was back in 2013 when he was still driving for Richard Childress.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR

4 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch piloted his No. 18 Toyota to a controversial second-place finish in Wednesday's Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway. Busch was running third when he made contact with Chase Elliott's No. 9 car, spinning Elliott out and bringing out a caution flag. During that caution, the rain came, ultimately leading to the race being called and teammate Denny Hamlin getting the victory. Busch started 26th on Wednesday, driving up towards the front but not leading any laps. It was a solid run for Busch, who'll look to keep up the momentum in Thursday's Xfinity race at Darlington, where he'll also be coming from the middle of the pack.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR

4 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin won Wednesday's Toyota 500 at Darlington in a race that ended early after rain hit the track. It was Hamlin's third win at the track. Hamlin's win might not have happened had teammate Kyle Busch not spun Chase Elliott, bringing out a caution that ultimately ended in a red flag and a called race after the weather stopped cooperating, as Hamlin didn't have the best car in the field, leading just 12 laps. Hamlin will look to follow this up with a strong run at Charlotte in the Coca-Cola 600, though Hamlin has never won a Cup race at that track, even though he finished second twice there in 2012.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR
Share:
4 months agoJoey Logano placed 18th in last Sunday’s race at Darlington, which was his third finish outside of the top 10 in the last four races at the South Carolina track. In 12 starts at the site, Logano has five top-10 finishes. Logano also scored negative place differential in three of the last four races at Darlington. The driver of the No. 22 Ford will start third at Wednesday’s Darlington race and should lead laps early, as he has better equipment than those that start on the front row. However, Logano’s performance on Sunday, as well as recent races at the “track too tough to tame,” point to him finishing outside the top 10. Logano’s price makes him a driver that doesn't come recommended. Look for cheaper and better alternatives.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com

4 months agoHendrick Motorsports driver Chase Elliott scored his best career Cup Series finish of fourth on Sunday at Darlington. In six starts at the site, Elliott has three top-10 finishes, including two top-five finishes in the last three races. Since 2018 at Darlington, Elliott ranks fifth in driver rating (97.9). This season to date, Elliott ranks fifth in average running position (8.6), fourth in laps in the top 15 (1,097), third in fastest laps (124) and second in driver rating (108.9). The driver of the No. 9 Chevrolet will start 17th and will compete for a top-five finish based on his equipment and recent history. Elliott will score positive place differential and is one of the best top-priced options for Wednesday’s Darlington race, especially in DraftKings lineups.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com

4 months agoDarlington is a track where Joe Gibbs Racing driver Martin Truex Jr. has seen a respectable amount of success. In 15 starts at the South Carolina track, Truex has one win and seven top-10 finishes, which includes a finish of sixth in last Sunday’s Darlington race. Truex also scored positive place differential in his last two starts at Darlington. The driver of the No. 19 Toyota will start Wednesday’s Darlington race 15th and has the equipment to compete for a top-five finish with a chance to win. Truex is worth playing in most lineups, but is especially a lock for FanDuel lineups as one of the cheapest top-priced picks.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com
Share:
4 months agoIn his first race since the conclusion of the 2018 season, Matt Kenseth scored a finish of 10th at Darlington. In 26 starts at the site, Kenseth has one win and 13 top-10 finishes. Including last Sunday’s race at Darlington, Kenseth has scored positive place-differential finishes in five of his last seven starts at the South Carolina track. Now that Kenseth is familiar with driving for Chip Ganassi Racing as well as the new 2020 rules package, he will be more competitive than the previous race at Darlington and should compete for a top-10 finish. For the price, equipment and starting position of 11th, Kenseth is a driver that is one of the better picks for Wednesday’s Darlington race.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com
Share:
4 months agoClint Bowyer placed 17th in Sunday’s race at Darlington, and Wednesday’s race at the South Carolina track will be his 16th start there. In 15 starts at Darlington Raceway, Bowyer has two top-10 finishes and has scored only one finish with positive place differential in his last four races at the site. Darlington is Bowyer’s worst track statistically and is the only Cup Series track where he has never scored a top-five finish. Bowyer will start fourth for Wednesday’s race at “the track too tough to tame,” but do not expect him to finish there, considering he has struggled at Darlington for the majority of his career, including last Sunday’s race. Bowyer’s price looks appealing considering his equipment with Stewart-Haas Racing, but he is a driver that fantasy players should avoid for Wednesday’s race.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com

4 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Erik Jones scored a finish of eighth in Sunday’s race at Darlington. In four starts at the South Carolina track, Jones has one win, four top-10 finishes and has scored three finishes with positive place differential. Since 2018 at Darlington, Jones ranks fourth in fastest laps (59), third in average running position (7.4) and driver rating (108.8) and second in laps in the top 15 (1,001). Darlington is one of his best tracks in the Cup Series, and he proved it once again during Sunday’s race. The driver of the No. 20 Toyota starts 15th and is a driver to recommend as a solid choice for lineups, as he will compete for a top-10 finish and pick up place differential based on his starting position.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com
Share:
4 months agoWilliam Byron is making his fourth career Cup Series start at Darlington on Wednesday. In Sunday’s race at the track, Byron led three laps and won the first stage before wrecking and finishing 35th and 14 laps down. The driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet has one top-10 finish this season and the eighth-most fastest laps (42). Bryon’s best finish in three starts at Darlington is 21st, and he will start 34th in this Wednesday’s race at the track. He will pick up plenty of place differential and displayed speeds in Sunday’s race indicative of challenging for a top-10 finish. Fantasy players should consider Byron for their lineups despite his history at the track, as his equipment and place differential are too good to ignore.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com
Share:
4 months agoHendrick Motorsports driver Alex Bowman was the runner-up in last Sunday’s race at Darlington while leading 41 laps, which was third-most of all drivers. Bowman’s finish of second was his first career top-10 finish at the site as well as his second top-five finish in the last three races this season. Since 2018 at Darlington, Bowman ranks first in fastest laps (100). The driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet will start 19th, and at his current salary, fantasy players should highly consider Bowman in lineups for Wednesday’s race at Darlington. Bowman will likely finish in the top five and challenge for the win while picking up place differential, as indicated by his strong performance last Sunday.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com
Share:
4 months agoStewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick won Sunday’s race at Darlington and led 159 laps, which was the most of all drivers. In 24 starts at the South Carolina track, Harvick has two wins, 13 top-10 finishes and 740 laps led, which leads all active drivers at the site. Since 2018 at Darlington, Harvick ranks third in laps in the top 15 (997), second in fastest laps (92) and average running position (6.4) and first in driver rating (117.5). In the last seven races at “the Track too tough to tame,” Harvick placed in the top 10 and led laps in five different races in that span. The driver of the No. 4 Ford will start 20th in this Wednesday’s race at Darlington and will be using the same car that he dominated with during Sunday’s race. Harvick will challenge for the win, pick up plenty of place differential and is one of the top drivers to anchor lineups around for Wednesday’s race.--Sean Engel - RotoBallerSource: RotoBaller.com

ERA Lie Detector: Finding 2019 Overachievers With SIERA (Part 1)

Skills-Interactive ERA (or SIERA) has been around since 2011 when it was introduced at Baseball Prospectus by Matt Swartz and Eric Seidman before moving to its current home at Fangraphs.
