The World Wide Technology racetrack is a unique oval with different radii at each end of the circuit. The track has relatively flat banking, which focuses on handling. Getting the vehicle properly set up will be essential to increase grip and tire wear. Shallow banking also makes lane positioning an important factor in a driver’s success. The drivers have won almost all previous races starting in the top five rows. No driver has ever won a under-20 start, and hardly anyone has started and won outside of the top five. Only twice in Gateway’s 20-race history on the calendar has someone who started outside the top 10 won the race, and one of those was Creed’s back-to-back win. Qualification could be especially important in picking this week’s fantasy slates.
