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!
Xfinity is really goofy this week.
First, pricing is crazy. There are way too many good cars/drivers priced under $6,500 to where it's pretty easy to stack the three studs -- Austin Cindric, AJ Allmendinger and Ty Gibbs -- with three cheaper guys and still make a really good lineup top to bottom. Whether we want to do that, or take a more balanced approach, will be determined by qualifying.
Second, we've got 40+ entries for 36 spots with race day qualifying. So we'll have a lot of cars that don't make the race and likely some decent cars that get a bad lap in qualifying and start towards the back. How qualifying shakes out will, in large part, determine how we want to build our lineups.
It's hard to know what will be most useful come Saturday afternoon, but here are some notes to help you sort things out after qualifying --

After qualifying, my first draft is thinking of rolling two of the three favs with

Seems like a pretty good approach to me. Slight Harvick lean, but there's no wrong call either way there on Harvick/Hemric. Should both be Top 10 cars if no issues.

Why do you like Hemric in this spot? Aren’t Hemric & Jones essentially the same this week? I’m not sure on their road history but for $700 less I’ll gladly take Jones starting at 12. Just my two cents though, good luck to you.

Thanks, Steve. Good luck today.

I'm fading Sieg today. I'm hearing he's still having engine problems. Could be wrong but....

I see Hemric as a safer play then Jones. I've pretty much taken Jones out of my cash pool unless he's starting way, way back. Too many mistakes.

That’s why I’m a moron. Brandon Jones is garbage. Can’t believe he wrecked first lap.
8/14/2021 01:36:41 pm
No way of knowing that would happen. Got Harvick too and others..Jones just seems to be a magnet for it

Anyone have any thoughts about Cindric and Allmendinger? Having a hard time picking one for cash?
8/14/2021 12:20:30 pm
If picking one, I like Cindric there. He was just so good here last year and on Friday. Should have better pit stops. Just feel more confident with him. Neither is a bad play though.

Thank you Steve. Best of luck

Hey Rob, where did you see anything on sieg having engine issues? I missed qualifying an practice but haven’t been able to find any reports on it.
