The second-last race of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season takes place this Sunday, as the second Drydene 311 of the weekend is set to take place at Dover. On Saturday, we got a a clear picture of who has the best cars at “The Monster Mile” right now, and there’s no reason to think that those fastest in the first race won’t have similar speed in the second.

There are quite a few statistics that go into the Power Index formula, including recent performance both overall and at Dover specifically, similar track performance, projected strength of the car, practice speeds, starting position, 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.
