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!

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.
