Racer X Fantasy: Budds Creek Preview

Racer X Fantasy: Budds Creek Preview

Racer X has partnered with MotoDynasty to bring you Fantasy Motocross. We'll be offering cool weekly and series prizes; dynasty play; private leagues that just you and you're buddies can play in; weekly fantasy previews; and weekly podcasts all focused on fantasy.

How to Play

1.) Sign-Up: This will be the easiest decision you've made all week. Go to motodynasty.racerxonline.com to sign up. 

2.) Play Options: There are two different ways to play Racer X MotoDynasty Fantasy Supercross. 

A.) Dynasty play is where you test your skills against thousands of others to win weekly and series prizes.

B.) Create or join a private league with your buddies, co-workers, family, the dude at the local watering hole—whoever. You can talk smack on your way to the league title.

They Were Who We Thought They Were

Below are the stats for the top ten of dynasty points earned for High Point. In short, the more points a rider earned, the more accurate the user base played them. Take Ken Roczen for example. He finished first. Most of you predicted this. Therefore, he garnered the most points. Or take Justin Brayton. He finished just outside the top ten in eleventh, but most users predicated this, and he scored the eighth most points last weekend.

Check out the rest of the top ten. This is a great indicator of who is a predictable fantasy racer.

Top Picks

250 Class

Alex Martin
We need to start treating Martin like the top-five threat he is every week. I like another top-five—especially if it rains. (See Southwick, 2011.)

Kyle Peters
Peters should fall between 10-15 in your picks. Through ten motos, he’s averaged a 14.3-place finish.

Cooper Webb
Taking the plunge and picking Webb for the podium in his first race back is not as crazy as it sounds.

Aaron Plessinger
If it rains as predicted, watch out for the former GNCC race winner. Podium is not a crazy prediction.

Zach Osborne
Osborne is another rider I like if conditions turn ugly. He’s raced plenty of off-road races and even the ISDE. In short: He knows how to manage different terrains and conditions.

450 Class

Ken Roczen
Unless something changed during the off-week, Ken’s back seems to be holding up. Race wins should come in bunches now.

Broc Tickle
As previously mentioned in 10 Things to Watch, Tickle has a 7.9 average finish through ten motos. I don’t foresee that changing this weekend.

Justin Brayton
Brayton typically starts to form into shape around this time. I like a top-ten this weekend.

Cole Seely
Seely has been solid in his first year outdoors. He has seven straight moto top-tens after a crash at the opening round. Don’t look for that to change this weekend.

Wil Hahn
Hahn appeared to turn the corner at High Point and should be a top-ten consideration going forward.

Sleeper Stats

250 Class: Glen Helen

Rider: Zack Williams | 20th

Points Scored: 618

Users that picked him top twenty: 29

Who to watch at Budds Creek: Anthony Rodriguez: A-Rod has been out since Hangtown, but should still battle for a top-ten spot this weekend.

450 Class: Glen Helen

Rider: John Short | 20th

Points Scored: 119

Users that picked him top twenty: 5

Who to watch at Budds Creek: Tony Archer: Watch for the Maryland native to perform well at his home track. He’s scored points in five of ten motos this season, which is also a plus.

Keep an eye on Wil Hahn this weekend.
