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!
Scroll down to see my article for Saturday's Xfinity Series race.
Just a brief write up for the Trucks race here. This race is only 44 laps, so we can't get too caught up in laps led or fastest laps. The bulk of points will be scored from raw finishing position and position difference. As of this moment, my approach is to play this like a super speedway race. That means starting drivers with the best equipment starting from 20th on back. We have a lot of road course specialists starting back there and I have no problem using them in this situation -- particularly when several of them are in Kyle Busch, GMS or Niece trucks.
UPDATE: After watching the Xfinity race, I'm thinking of using one guy starting toward the front who I trust to get a Top 5 and possibly throw in a few laps led. In the last two seasons, Brett Moffitt has been one of the best road course racers in this Series. He starts 3rd and the guys on the front row have no road course experience. I think there's a decent chance Moffitt leads early and, by running out front, he stays clear of the chaos that I do expect to take place deeper in the field.
And a couple of bets I'm playing:
