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!
What a wild Saturday. Before we get into Cup stuff, I wanted to talk for a minute about contest selection. Saturday's Xfinity contests had a great example to help understand why what contests you enter might be even more important then what lineup you use.
Now onto Cup stuff. I've got to think cash lineups are going to be so chalky with a host of good cars starting in the back due to numerous practice and qualifying issues. I really can't argue against playing any of the five guys who will be scored in the 30s - Almirola, Harvick, Chastain, Wallace and Kurt Busch. Kurt will have to do a drive through penalty, but with the number of expected cautions on Sunday, it's pretty likely he can get a lap back even if he does fall off the lead lap serving the penalty. You could conceivably use all five and then pick your favorite with the remaining salary.
