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!
WOW! What a race that was in Chicago. If you didn't love that racing action, something is wrong. I don't like Kyle Busch by any means, but that was still an awesome finish.
Sorry to all who checked for updates last Saturday and Sunday before the Chicago race. I got sick and just didn't have the time or energy to do the research and work I need to do to write a good strategy article. I'll be back with a full complement of material this week.

I'm going to start with my first set of Daytona notes and then revisit a list I did earlier this year of things to remember for plate track races:
First Set of Daytona Notes
Plate Track Approach -- I'm going to re-post what I wrote back in February before the Daytona 500. Bottom line - I like to pull back on plate track weekends by playing less money and doing more tournaments than cash games.

Nothing will be decided until the very end in this one.
[Originally posted in February 2018] -- With cars hitting the track for practice, qualifying and "The Clash" this coming weekend, it's time to start thinking about lineups for the Daytona 500. First a few general concepts to remember for plate track races:
