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!
Saturday Morning Update In Cup Section Below
In general, the best cash game strategy at "plate track" races like Daytona and Talladega is to roster drivers from decent teams who are starting from about 20th on back. So much depends on starting spot and the good fortune of avoiding the Big One. We are not focused on Dominators at all at the plate tracks because (1) fastest laps and laps led tend to be spread out much more then other types of tracks; and (2) there is extreme risk with drivers starting up front because they will score negative points if they get caught up in one of the wrecks. We're focused on drivers starting further back who give us very strong position difference upside with little downside of negative points, etc. if they do get caught up in a wreck.
With those general concepts in mind, here are a few more specific notes to help guide you through lineup building for the Xfinity and Cup Series races on Friday and Saturday night.
