A quick look at three drivers to watch for your Fantasy Live consideration following Sunday’s qualifying results for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series I LOVE NEW YORK 355 at The Glen (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
Kevin Harvick ($27.75): Harvick qualified 20th, but was in the top 11 in both practices on Saturday. As we saw at Sonoma, the stage lengths are going to shake up the strategy, and the No. 4 team was certainly on the right side of that in June in California after starting 12th. The 2006 winner has a 13.2 average finish here — seventh-best among active drivers.
Daniel Suarez ($21.50): Suarez will start fifth, a season-best starting spot for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate. He has three straight top-seven finishes and finished last year’s XFINITY Series race here in fourth. If you are a believer in Suarez’s second-half surge, this is a good play and a strong price point.
Landon Cassill ($5.50): If you want place differential at a low price, Cassill is your guy. The Front Row Motorsports driver will start 32nd. In five starts at Watkins Glen, he has an average place differential of +11 with double-digit gains from start to finish in four of the past five races at the New York road course.
