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!

First crucial point. This is an impound race so tech inspection will be Saturday afternoon. If a car fails tech once, it's qualifying time is disallowed and it's official starting spot will move to the back of the field. So you must double check those lineups to make sure you've taken all that into account. If you want to follow the tech process in near real time, follow Bob Pockrass on Twitter @bobpockrass. I believe Bob tweeted on Friday that tech is scheduled to begin at about 2:30 Eastern time on Saturday. So we should know the official starting order within an hour of that.
Subject to everything being turned upside down tomorrow afternoon, here's my current thinking:

When you talk about guys paying off their salaries what value are you looking for? For example a Matt Tift and a Ryan Blaney.

Really good question. To me it depends on the salary range of the driver and what role you want him to fill on your roster. With a guy like Tifft, you're not looking for laps led or fastest laps. It's strictly an issue of finishing spot and position difference for a minimal salary. Let's say Tifft is $5K and is starting 32nd. I'd want a punt play like this to give me about 4X on his salary. If he finishes 28th, he gets me 16 + 4 for position difference. I'll take the 20 points and anything more is a bonus. For a guy like Blaney or a higher salary guy, it depends if I want him as a dominator or as a low risk, solid finish/position difference guy. Sometimes you might want a 10X (or more) return from a projected dominator at Bristol where you have 500 laps. And you might want more of 5X return on a guy starting 20th or so who you expect to move up and finish in the Top 10.
