Fantasy Indycar Picks: Houston

Normally, I would just say "Hey folks here are your picks for the 2014 Shell and Penzoil Grand Prix of Houston" but I have some news to report on the 2015 Fantasy Indycar Field:

  • Tragically, Michael Tressler, a father, husband, son, friend, and a member of the Indycar family passed away on June 8th at the age of 35. Michael was a very loyal and active Fantasy Indycar member, and a great friend. His family is all in our thoughts and prayers. To pay tribute to Michael, I have set up the Michael Tressler Rookie of the Year award given to the Fantasy Indycar rookie who scores the most points in a season. Michael will be missed by everyone who had the privilege to talk to him.
  • On a lighter yet still sad note, Ross Fujibayashi and Kirstyn Brokken have both ended their Fantasy Indycar careers for personal reasons effective immediately. Please respect their privacy. Also, Emily Mugan has announced that she will be retiring at the end of the season. As sad as it is to lose several great members of the Fantasy Indycar field, the show must go on. If you're looking to play next year, let me know!
Here are the picks for races 1 and 2 (current points leader highlighted in red):
