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!
-A few Saturday night updates in bold
There's so much going on this weekend that I only have time for a short Truck Series write up. This is the first time since 2011 that the Trucks are racing at Darlington, so there's really no track history to use. With no practice at a new track for most of these guys, I'm going to play it very conservatively. There are a lot of decent trucks starting pretty far back that give you high floors, good upside and some safety. We also have a bunch of good trucks starting right up front and any one of them can lead a bunch of laps and dominate the race. But these are pretty short races and we typically see several trucks lead different portions of the race so a lot of those dominator points end up getting spread out among several trucks.
While guys up front like Brett Moffitt, Austin Hill, Zane Smith and Sheldon Creed all could work out, I can't really separate them and say that one of them is most likely to dominate. The early competition caution, short stages and the fact that they get six sets of tires (meaning lots of pit stops whenever a caution comes out) makes me think no one will truly dominate and that we'll see multiple leaders at different times. Since there's no clear favorite and they'll likely split a lot of the dominator points, I'm looking to build a lineup filled with solid place differential plays starting from about 10th on back.
