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!
Unfortunately, I can't be as helpful as normal for Trucks & Xfinity this week. With same day qualifying, I just can't be all that specific about which drivers to target based on starting position. The general approach for cash games (50/50s) will be the same as the past. We're looking for drivers starting from at least 25th on back who have the most reliable equipment and experience at the plate tracks (Daytona and Talladega).
There are 46 trucks on the entry list for at most 36 spots in the race. Obvious point, but make absolutely certain you're starting people who are in the race.
The truck races at plate tracks are usually very crazy, so I look for guys who are likely to be conservative and just ride around the back until the end of the race. For cash games, it's all about your trucks still running at the end of the race.
Here are some likely targets based on who I'd expect to be starting toward the back:
Trucks Update after Thursday Practice--
Much the same story with 45 entries for a 36 car field. Again, double check everyone you use makes the race.
