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!
First and foremost, follow inspection issues on Sunday morning. It's an impound weekend, so if a car fails inspection on Sunday, the qualifying time is disallowed and it gets an official starting spot in the rear. Our last impound race was last week at Pocono where we saw nine cars fail inspection. It turned every cash lineup upside down in the hours before the race.
If we have inspection failures Sunday, it will turn over lineups once again. As it stands now, I really don't see a whole lot of good value plays. Most cars seemed to qualify about where you would expect based on practice speeds, etc. There are a few cars in the 14th-25th range that have +8 to +10 position difference upside. But otherwise no one is sticking out as an obvious value play. And I don't see a whole lot of upside out of any of the cheapest drivers starting from 26th on back.
With that background, let's get into some of the cars I'm focused on:
