After NASCAR’s return to action on Sunday afternoon, we have a quick turnaround to the next Cup Series race, as the teams will be getting ready to race again on Wednesday night. Yep, you read that right: Wednesday night. The interesting thing about this second race is that the starting lineup is being set by the finishing order of the first race; positions 1-20 are inverted (meaning the driver that finished 20th on Sunday will start 1st on Wednesday, etc.) while positions 21-40 are set by the finishing order (so the driver that finished 21st on Sunday will start 21st on Wednesday, etc.). Below is how the cars will line up on Wednesday night.

As someone who has always been obsessed with numbers, Fantasy NASCAR has been the perfect fit with me. I pride myself on the quality of my analysis for each race, and am glad that I have been able to help others along the way. I've been a serious Fantasy NASCAR player for over 10 years now, and I'm just getting started.
