Richard Petty Motorsports | Aric Almirola readies for Richmond

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 19:37:42 -0700

Richard Petty Motorsports driver Aric Almirola has posted two Top 10 finishes on short tracks so far this season, so he is looking forward to this week's race at Richmond International Raceway Saturday, April 26. "You know, in years past at (RPM) our mile-and-a-half program has really been our strong suit and I've kind of dreaded going to short tracks," Almirola said. "Even though I like them, I've kind of dreaded it because I knew that our short-track program wasn't very good, and it was a struggled just to run 20th. We had to fight both tooth and nail."

FANTASY TIP: Almirola, who sits 24th in the points, has been a surprise for fantasy owners. Richmond is another short track, so Almirola could be a sneaky fantasy option, especially in salary cap formats, if he duplicates his success from Bristol and Martinsville earlier this season.

BK Racing | Cole Whitt joins three-man team

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 19:36:15 -0700

Swan Racing shed both its Sprint Cup Series cars Wednesday, April 23, due to lack of funds. One of its two cars will move to BK Racing, where former Swan minority partner Anthony Marlowe will be listed as owner. The No. 26 car will be driven by Cole Whitt, joining new teammates Alex Bowman of the No. 23, and Ryan Truex of the No. 83 car.

FANTASY TIP: Whitt ranks 33rd in the standings, posting no wins, Top 5s or Top 10s in eight starts so far this season. For fantasy purposes, he is usually only a thought in salary cap formats when trying to squeeze in a low-priced option to afford higher priced stars at your other spots.
