Qualifying and two practice sessions are complete at Atlanta Motor Speedway so it’s time to turn to the Fantasy Racing Online algorithm and see which drivers it likes the best for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.
There are quite a few statistics that go into the Power Index formula, including recent performance both overall and at Atlanta specifically, similar track performance, projected strength of the car, practice speeds, and a few other variables.
Here’s a quick overview of the Power Index number: essentially, zero (0) is considered average; the more negative a number is in the Power Index, the stronger that driver is considered in the Fantasy NASCAR world. The opposite holds true as well: the more above zero a driver is, the worse he is considered for Fantasy NASCAR that week.
|3.||Truex, Jr., Martin||-33.4|
