After crossing under the checkers 10th at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, Ryan Newman has scored four top-10s in his last eight races of the season. He started the Coca-Cola 600 14th.

Newman is the embodiment of yeomanly work. He has not been flashy in recent races, but in that span of events he has scored an average finish of 14.4 with only one result worse than 17th. He makes a great fill-in pick in almost every Fantasy NASCAR game.

Joey Logano was caught speeding during a green flag pit stop sequence near lap 250 of the 400-lap distance of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He lost a lap, got back in touch with the leaders by pitting off sequence, and salvaged a ninth-place finish.

Logano keeps scoring top-10s and that makes him a solid fantasy performer, but until he challenges for wins it is difficult to build a roster around the No. 22.

Matt Kenseth advanced 20 positions from his starting position in the Coca-Cola 600 to finish seventh at Charlotte Motor Speedway Sunday night.

He finished outside the top 10 in eight of those races and recorded a modest average finish of slightly better than 19th. His fourth-place finish at Kansas Speedway was followed by a victory at Dover International Speedway. He is currently seeded seventh in the Chase grid outlook and is suddenly fantasy relevant once more.

Kurt Busch finished sixth in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to extend his top-10 streak on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks to 12 consecutive races.

This streak dates back to last year’s SpongeBob SquarePants 400 at Kansas Speedway, and in that span of races on this track type he has averaged a result of 6.7. Winning one’s fantasy league is not only about having the winning driver on the roster, but often about who accompanies him.

"I kind of felt like he was playing with us," Jimmie Johnson said of Martin Truex Jr. in post-race coverage after finishing the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in third. Johnson did not sound terribly upset, however, because this stopped a three-race skid of finishes outside the top 15 on the track.

Last year was a miserable one for Johnson at Charlotte. He finished 40th in this race with crash damage and was 39th in the fall after blowing an engine, but once upon a time he dominated the 1.5-mile similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track with seven victories to his credit.

Kevin Harvick had a top-10 car before night fell, but once the sun went down he really picked up the pace. Harvick drove past Jimmie Johnson in the final green flag run and thought he would catch Martin Truex Jr. He finished 2.573 seconds behind the winner, however, in second.

Harvick was still one of the best values in the game, however. He earned six place-differential points after starting eighth and scored his sixth consecutive top-10 on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. This was his second runner-up finish in a row, having crossed under the checkers behind Kyle Busch in the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway.

It has been quite some time since NASCAR has seen domination like the series witnessed in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. He led at the 100-, 200-, 300-, 400-, 500-, and 600-mile mark. Truex led 392 laps and posted 106 fastest laps to make him the driver no fantasy player could win without.

The only drama associated with Truex was wondering if anything would go wrong in the final laps. Truex had dominant performances earlier this season at Kansas Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway before bad luck and pit strategy cost him. He was so popular that practically every player had him on their roster, so while one could not win without him—the No. 78 did not help differentiate any lineups.
