The first race of the Chase has come and gone, but the second is just as enticing for daily fantasy owners. New Hampshire offers the first repeat Chase race of the season, giving a sample size for owners to help master picks this weekend.
While Kyle Busch and the entire Joe Gibbs Racing stable has NASCAR in a stranglehold, one driver can change that this weekend: Brad Keselowski.
Simply put, Team Penske has been the only team to compete with JGR over the last two-plus months. Gibbs has won eight of the last 10 races, with Joey Logano collecting the other two checkered flags. Oh, and Keselowski holds an average finish of 6.0 with 10 straight top-10 finishes over that span.
That’s not enough for you? How about the fact that he’s been one of the best drivers in the Chase over the past two seasons? No driver can touch his consistency at this point.
With his 8th-place showing at Chicago, Brad Keselowski became the 6th driver in #TheChase era to log 10 straight T10 finishes.

He came up short in the last race to Busch at New Hampshire, but Keselowski was the highest scoring fantasy driver at the track. The Blue Deuce led 100 laps and finished second after starting 10th to total 106 points for owners.
All of those numbers make sense with the huge stats Kes has put together at the track. His 316 laps led total more than a third of the 909 laps ran in the last three races at New Hampshire. Heading back to NHMS this Sunday, there’s no reason to believe he can’t repeat that success.
