Aric Almirola has scored three top-15s in four races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year.

His three strongest results all came in a narrow band of ninth (at Kansas Speedway) though 13th (Atlanta Motor Speedway). It is unlikely he will jump all the way into the top five this week, but could still be fantasy relevant under the right circumstances.

Landon Cassill has made six starts so far in 2018. Half of these ended in 20-something finishes with the other half in the 30s.

Two of Cassill’s 20-something results came on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks with a 21st at Texas Motor Speedway and a 25th at Kansas Speedway. That suggests he could be a solid value in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and should be watched closely in practice and qualification.

Kyle Busch tied his career best finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway in last year’s Coke 600 when he finished finished second. Charlotte is the only current track in the Monster Energy Cup Series on which Busch has not captured the checkered flag.

The second place title was the thorn in Kyle Busch’s side at the start of his 2018 campaign. Busch finished runner-up in three of the first six races of the season before his three-race win streak. Busch also has three runner-up finishes in his last 18 points eligible races at Charlotte. Busch has the ability to capitalize on his early season heat and defeat his final asphalt foe.

Charlotte Motor Speedway will be the fourth of 12 XFINITY Series races for Ty Majeski in the No. 60 Ford Mustang for 2018.

Majeski on Charlotte: "I am very excited to be racing at Charlotte for the first time. It is in everyone’s back yard and everyone wants to win. It’s one of the toughest 1.5-mile tracks on the schedule, so it was big for me to have been able to test there. We felt like the test went pretty well. There were some positives taken away from it for sure, but we have some ideas to be even better this race weekend." Recapping Dover: In his first ever start at Dover, Majeski qualified ninth and led laps at the "Monster Mile" before a mechanical issue sent him to the garage for repairs. The rookie returned to the track learning and logging laps before an incident late in the race ended his day early, resulting in a 34th-place finish in his No. 60 Ford.-Roush Fenway Racing

The 24-year-old Lupton will make his 34th career NASCAR Xfinity Series start and eighth on a mile-and-a-half intermediate track.

Using fuel mileage, Austin Dillon won last year’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but that is his only top-10 in the past two years on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

If that win is removed from his record, Dillon has an average finish of 19.5 on this track type since the beginning of the 2017 season. Eight of his 13 races ended between 13th and 17th, however, so he may fit a niche if he is rightly-priced.

Corey LaJoie has been strong recently, but only when he does not experience engine-related issues.

LaJoie has made five starts this year. He blew an engine three times, but when he was running at the end, he scored a pair of top-25s. One of these came last week in the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway with a 24th. Fantasy players simply cannot trust that he will get to the end of 600 miles this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, however.
May 23 - 1:03 PM

Jimmie Johnson has not scored a top-10 finish in his last six attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, dating back to an 11th last fall at Kansas Speedway.

If Johnson kept narrowly missing the top 10, that would be one thing, but he has three results outside the top 25 and an average of 21.8 in those six races. Until he rebounds for several consecutive weeks, he is contraindicated on fantasy rosters.
