Cole Whitt has been one of the most consistent drivers on short, flat tracks this year, but he will be useful to fantasy owners only in extreme need. Four of his five races on this track type have ended a narrow band from 27th to 30th.
Based on his consistency, Cole Whitt could be a conditionally good pick for fantasy players. His last four efforts on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks of Texas, Kansas, Charlotte, and Kentucky have ended in results ranging from 27th to 31st.
Cole Whitt has been consistent on flat tracks this season with five results ranging from 27th through 32nd.
Cole Whitt has shown promise on NASCAR’s flat tracks. He finished in the top 30 in four of five races, with a best of 27th being earned at Phoenix. His other efforts netted a 29th at Martinsville, 30th at Pocono, and 28th at New Hampshire, which leaves a 41st at Richmond as the only poor effort.
What’s in a name? In Cole Whitt’s case it would appear to be worth two positions. In his first eight races this season with Swan Racing he posted an average finish of about 31st. His latest 11 races netted and average of 29th.
Cole Whitt will make his first New Hampshire Cup start this week. Fantasy players will need to determine his fantasy relevance based on performances in other short, flat track races at the Cup level.
