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 general notes before moving into the details. Just 160 laps this week, so many fewer laps led and fastest lap points are in play. Finishing position and position difference will be even more critical this week. Also, current forecasts show very tough weather with high rain chances especially on Friday and Saturday. Hopefully they will get some practice time so we can see how everyone is looking.
Last year, we saw a huge amount of overlap in the Top 10 in the two Pocono races. Seven drivers finished in the Top 10 in both races and two of those drivers finished in the Top 5 in both races. These drivers will be a focus this weekend -- even more so if practice gets rained out. Here's the list:
Here are a few more details on some of these drivers and others of note:
We'll have more after cars hit the track.
