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!
Looking forward to Bristol on Sunday. Bets did pretty well in the Charlotte 2 race. Fantasy was a slight loss with Bowman running into the wall. Bristol stuff coming by Saturday night.
Two early competition cautions is bad for Brad Keselowski as it increases the risk he doesn't lead enough and/or gets shuffled back in the pack. Makes the position difference guys a bit more interesting.
Here we go. At last, the weather looks great for 500 laps at Bristol on Sunday. With the increased number of laps, we increase the laps led and fastest laps points and also the multiples we are looking for from our drivers. Whereas we usually look for a 5x return on salary, we're looking for something more in the 6x-7x return at Bristol. We also have to consider the increased risks at Bristol. The track is so short that leaders can very easily get caught up in wrecks like happened with Ryan Blaney two years ago. And any mistakes on pit road are magnified. If you get a penalty on a green flag stop, you're going multiple laps down. Same for a loose wheel.
I'm going to talk about a few key decision points that will really dictate where your roster goes in a cash game setting.
Where you go with those two decisions is going to drive a lot of what you can do with the rest of your roster. A few other points of note:
Here are a few bets I'm playing this weekend. Not all that much that I like.
