(Monday updates are in RED.)

Last week’s race at Charlotte was a little rough. I broke even with some GPP lineups coming through in the Slingshot-equivalent contest. Kyle Busch being in the Xfinity or Truck races always presents a challenge, but we have KB54-free slate with Xfinity this week so we don’t need to worry about paying down too much.

To give a brief summary of the track, this is the Bullring. It’s a 0.533-mile short track. The turns are high in banking and it does get pretty narrow at times. Normally the great thing about this race is the fan experience. This is a big stadium with a half-mile race track inside it so fans line the entire length of the track and sadly none will be in attendance this time around. Matt Selz and I vary a little bit in our opinions of short track racing because lap traffic comes into play more than ever here because the laps just tick by so quickly. When they get this race started, the front row will fire up the engines and the last row...
