Horsepower Fantasy Racing: Picks for the AAA Texas 500

As John Wayne would say, “Round em up, Pilgrim.”

NASCAR this week is heading for a real shootout. With the finish of last week being a true battle of might and braun, it is already looking as though a shootout will take place.

The boots and hats are up, and some even brought out the spurs for some tough action.

It is deep in the heart of Texas this week, as the second to last race of the season will end with some guns fired up high.

Already the shootout last week saw one participant locked into the finals. He’s a bit hurting this week, more on that later. But, three more spots remain.

It’s time to quick draw, and reveal the picks for the AAA Texas 500:

 

MISAN AKUYA:  Ryan Blaney
