I started this blog to provide a casual, recreational level of fantasy NASCAR advice and discussion. I've been playing these contests for a number of years and am annoyed by lineup sellers and groups of players using the same lineup. I'm hoping to give the casual player some help in building solid lineups that can beat that annoying crowd most of the time. I'm not a "tout" and don't do this for a living, so proceed accordingly. I hope you enjoy the discussion here and Good Luck!
Obviously I've been quiet the last few weeks. I just haven't had the right time to do all the preparation work and have time left over to do a write up before the race. I am going to try to get back on track with the Nashville race in a couple weeks. Please stay tuned and follow on Twitter @dfsnascarguy as I will send out a notice there when I update the site. Thanks!
Nothing from me for the All Star race. Will be back with Xfinity and Cup articles for Charlotte.
A stars and scrubs approach worked for the Xfinity Series race and I might just go back to that for the Cup Series race. Here is who I'm focused on for cash games and most single entry tournaments--
Here are my tops targets for Saturday's Xfinity Series race, focusing on cash games and single entry tournaments--
I don't feel like any driver in the mid tier is a must have. Ty Dillon, Riley Herbst, Parker Klingerman and Corey Heim all could be decent plays, but I also don't fear any of them killing me if I don't have them. So I'm leaning toward a stars and scrubs lineup with three of the guys above and three salary savers from this list--
With same day qualifying, I probably won't have time to post anything for Friday's Truck Series race. But I plan to have write-ups posted for Xfinity on Friday night and Cup on Saturday night. Good luck this weekend.
This is a difficult slate because so many good arguments can be made to play most of the guys starting in the Top 12 or so. I'm going to go at this article backwards and talk first about some cheaper position difference options I like and then move up to the front runners--
Now to the front runners--
Based on Sunday's weather forecast, it looks like this could be a washout with a Monday race. At the very least, we're going to have a green track with no rubber down and conditions nothing like practice. That's going to add to the unpredictable nature of things. Given all the uncertainty, I'm leaning very heavily on Dover history and want to be conservative. Here are the key targets:
Well it's kind of a messy slate for cash games and single entries because the lineup build is pretty obvious. We're jamming in as many high end position difference plays as we can get (four of them) and then using cheaper punt type plays for the rest.

Good luck. Cup thoughts late Saturday night.
I'm very much looking forward to next week when we start a string of more traditional races. The last three weeks we've had the dirt nonsense, no passing Martinsville and now the demolition derby. It will be great to have a string of Dover, Kansas, Darlington, Charlotte, St. Louis, Sonoma and more coming up.
For Talladega cash games and single entry contests, we're using the time tested strategy of packing the back. A good chunk of the six man lineup jumps off the page leaving us with a few final decisions that will make or break the day.
