OPR Staff and Fan Fantasy Pick Results for NNS at Darlington

So who was better this week at Darlington Raceway – the experts or the fans?

 

Assistant Editor: Ashley McCubbin – Ashley chose Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott. Kyle Busch finished fourth after leading a race-high 84 laps while Kevin Harvick slipped to seventh late in the race due to not getting good restarts throughout the night. Chase Elliott restarted sixth with two laps to go and was able to weave his way through traffic to pick up his second straight win. Points: 42+38+47=127

Journalist: Tayler Stiles – Tayler chose Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Regan Smith. Joey Logano ran inside the top five throughout the night on his way to finishing fifth, while Regan Smith came back to finish eighth after spinning on lap 88 due to a flat tire. Points: 38+39+36=113

Journalist: Marshall Gabell – Marshall chose Chris Buescher, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson. Unfortunately while Chris Buescher showed lots of speed, contact with Dylan Kwasniewski took the rookie out of contention. Meanwhile, Kyle Larson finished sixth after battling a loose racecar the second half of the race. Points: 10+42+38=90

Photographer: Ronald Costigan – Ronald chose Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott. Points: 42+38+47=127

Fan #2 – Christina Cordner – Christina chose Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Brian Scott. Kenseth was in solid contention all night on his way to finishing third, while Scott ran just outside the top 10 on his way to finishing 11th. Points: 42+41+33=116
