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!
Honestly, I don't have a whole lot to add to what we said in the look ahead a few days ago. I fully expect this race to be won by Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch or Martin Truex. And some combination of those three is likely to dominate the race as well. That is basically what has happened the last four Texas races. Truex won both races last year, with Harvick and Busch each winning a race in 2016.
Also, in looking back at the last few Kansas races, there have been a good amount of Top 10 finishers coming from back in the field. Last Fall, for example, four of the Top 10 finishers started 19th or worse. In the Spring, four of the Top 10 finishers started 15th or worse. So there will also be some opportunity for position difference points here.
I also looked back at the three races this year on 1.5 mile tracks. Of note, Harvick won two of those races and finished second in the other one. Kyle Busch has finished 7th, 2nd and 1st. Truex has two Top 5 finishes, but crashed out at Texas. Logano has finished 6th, 7th and 6th. Keselowski, Blaney, Kurt Busch and Eric Jones have been pretty strong as well.
I'll have a lineup construction update posted real late Friday night after I can watch practice and qualifying.
