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!
Developments during qualifying left us in a very interesting spot. Based on salary and starting position, I've narrowed down my possible cash game plays to about 10-12 driver targets. Here's who I'm looking at:

In the last post, I identified an initial group of drivers of particular interest to me coming into this race weekend. Here's a few more notes -- mostly about those guys and their performance in the last three 600 mile races and on 1.5 mile tracks this season.
I'm not going to do a write-up on the All Star race. It's a totally new rules package that has no relation to anything they've ever used at Charlotte before. There is a restrictor plate, enlarged spoiler and a different splitter. There is no comparison to anything they have run in the past, so there's no reason to look at historical results. I expect the thing to be totally unpredictable and pretty wacky and I have no interest in putting any money into it.
Looking ahead to the 600, here are a few guys with good to great Charlotte histories who I am starting to focus on. As always, a lot will depend on practice and qualifying position:
We'll have much more coverage for the 600 in the coming days.
