OPR Staff and Fan Fantasy Results for NNS at Road America

In a race filled with left turns, right turns, drivers getting knocked off course, strategy, and oh….rain? Yes, there was rain on Saturday afternoon at Road America and yes, the drivers did race in it. Can you say holy interesting amazing racing?

Getting back to the matters at hand, it was Brendan Gaughan that survived all that and played the right cards to pick up his first Nationwide Series career victory in the Gardner Denver 200 fired by Johnsonville.

Now who picked the right drivers to survive the chaos?
