Stewart-Haas Racing | Kurt Busch looks for good Indy result

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:02:35 -0700

Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kurt Busch competed in the Indianapolis 500 in the IndyCar Series in May. He was sixth in that race, but hasn't finished in the Top 10 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Sprint Cup Series since 2003. "I have a greater appreciation for the speedway, and I hope the respect I show it this weekend will help me bounce up on some of my results here at the track," Busch said Friday, July 25. "It's been tough in a stock car here for me."

FANTASY TIP: Busch traditionally hasn't fared very well at the track, and there are better fantasy options such as Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:01:37 -0700

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Matt Kenseth had seven Sprint Cup Series wins last season, but he is winless through the first 19 races this season.

He was the fastest in practice Friday, July 25.

FANTASY TIP: Kenseth has never won in Indianapolis, but he finished second in 2003 and 2006, and he was fifth last season. Despite the lack of wins, he is a solid play in salary cap fantasy formats.
