NASCAR DFS Strategy: Atlanta QuikTrip 500
Atlanta Motor Speedway is a 1.54-mile quad oval with a 20-year old racing surface. The aged track is extremely abrasive, causing significant tire wear early into a fuel run. Thus, pit strategy often comes into play, which is how Jimmie Johnson took the race win last year. However, this year there’s an added twist with the introduction of NASCAR’s new race segments. Teams will be strategically pitting in order to win a segment, and gain precious playoff points. I’ll explain exactly how I think this will affect NASCAR DFS strategy for this weekend’s race.
