Joe Gibbs Racing drivers have been the dominating race team the past two seasons with Kyle Busch winning the Cup Championship in 2015 and Toyota winning its first manufacturer title last season mostly due to JGR. So it should come to no surprise that three of the four drivers that make futures portfolios this week are JGR drivers.

Points Formula (Monster Energy Cup Series)
Each analyst receives a weekly allowance of 200 points to spend on races (100 x 36) and futures (100 x 32).
100 futures points will be invested before practice begins each week, while 100 race points will be invested on race day.
The weekly totals take into account both the 100 futures investment and the 100 in race picks.
After race 32 in Kansas, each analyst will no longer be obligated to invest the 100 in futures points if he chooses, although he must continue to invest the 100 in race points through Homestead.
