Core Plays

Noah Gragson – $11,000 – Starting 3rd

It is really hard to go anywhere but Gragson at Martinsville when factoring his seasonal success and his past successes at this track. In seven races on the year, Gragson has five top-ten finishes and one win, while averaging 48.7 fantasy points per race. This average is the second-highest of all drivers, and only second to AJ Allmendinger. Only three drivers have an average fantasy score above 38 fantasy points (using a minimum of five races as a threshold). Last year at Martinsville, Gragson led 153 laps, taking the checkered flag with over 102 fantasy points. In April of last year, Gragson finished 2nd, and in 2020 finished 3rd. Martinsville is the shortest track on the circuit at just 0.52 miles which creates a lot of tight racing. With shorter tracks, we are going to get more laps, so more dominator points. This can make rostering the front of the field more appealing than races where place differential would be our main target.

Update: Gragson is sent to the rear for unapproved adjustments. I am pivoting to Allmendinger here.

Mason Massey – $6,300 – Starting 26th

Typically down at this level, we are unable to find any consistency in this pricing range, but Mason Massey has put together back-to-back strong outings, finishing 17th last week and sixth the week before while also netting us a few quick laps. In five races on the year, Massey has netted a positive differential in all five races. With the 26th starting spot here, we can expect a handful of differential as he has finished 23rd or better in each of his last three races. While the odds to win are rightfully so 400-1 here, every driver priced below this price is 1000-1 or worse.
