2018 Frontstretch Cup: Coke Zero Sugar 400

Welcome to the 11th season of the Frontstretch Cup, a year-long competition in which the Frontstretch staff and guests from around the NASCAR world attempt to predict the winner of each Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race

This season, we are joined by driver Corey LaJoie.

Think you can do better? Leave your picks in the comments.

How it works

Each week, Cup drivers will be ranked in order of their respective FanDuel price. With 41 drivers on the Daytona entry list, competitors select one driver ranked from 1-10 and one driver from 11-41. They choose the two drivers they believe will either win the race or finish well.

2018 Scoring System

Each driver will receive points on an inverted finishing position system. For example:

1st = 40
2nd = 39
3rd = 38
4th = 37
and so on.

There will be a five-point bonus for the winning driver.
There will be a 10-point bonus if both drivers finish first/second.
There will be a five-point deduction per driver for DNFs.

There will also be no limit to the number of times a driver can be picked throughout the season.

Without further ado, here are this week’s rankings.

For all FS’ expressed love for underdogs, the writers pick the favorites every week in their silly fantasy game. I hope Ryan Blaney finishes last. He is a self-promoting media whore and affects me the way Kyle Busch affects most of your sheep (readers).

So, did I call it or did I cause it? All you haters better hope it was only the former. But I certainly proved I really am Smarter Than Yo!
