Fantasy Insight: Atlanta (Return to Roushland)

Dennis Michelsen · Wednesday October 26, 2005


Jack Roush is having an incredible run on downforce tracks like Atlanta Motor Speedway this season. Four wins and an amazing 24 Top 10s have shown that this is a team built for speed! In fact, the worst top finish by a Roush team this year at these tracks is 3rd place. So when the name of the game is speed, pick a Roush ride for the win.
