Core Plays

AJ Allmendinger – $10,500 – Starting 10th

The Xfinity Series makes a unique stop this week for the first visit at Portland International Raceway. The track is a 1.9-mile road course that features 12 total turns. When we get a road course, Allmendinger is an easy choice for us as he has tore up road courses at the Xfinity level. Since 2019, he has three wins at the Roval, a win at Circuit of the Americas, a win at mid-ohio, and two top-fives at the Indy Road. In 13 total races on the year, Allmendinger has 12 top-ten finishes and an average finish of sixth. He also sports the highest fantasy points per race on the year in Xfinity. Since this is a new track to the circuit, no historical data here, but the past road course chops are all we really need. Allmendinger starting 10th also gives us a little wiggle room for differential upside and while racing at a track 16-years-ago isn’t an advantage, Allmendinger is one of the few drivers who can say he has any form of experience at this track.

Josh Williams – $4,700 – Starting 31st

I simply do not understand this price here. While Williams hasn’t been good at all this year, his average finish is still 26th. Williams has broken 25 fantasy points in five of his last eight races and while the ceiling isn’t super high he hasn’t been a liability. This is a road course, with not a ton of dominator points to go around so really differential is our key target here. While Williams is no road course messiah, I would argue that some of his best results have come on them. Over the last few years, Williams holds an average top-20 finish at five different road course tracks. I am targeting this play simply due to the price as punting this play allows us to target guys like Allmendinger, Gibbs, Berry, Allgaier, and Gragson.
