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!
Don't have much time available to write up something for Saturday's race. The field is loaded up front and I could see any of the Top 5 starters leading at the beginning and for a good chunk of the race. Factor in a competition caution at Lap 15 and it's even more uncertain as to what the guys up front will do.
Also, despite the race name -- FireKeepers Casino 400 -- the race is only 312 miles long with 156 laps. With the uncertainty up front and somewhat reduced number of laps, it might be that the best strategy for this first race is to focus a little more on position difference upside. I'm seeing a lot of good plays starting just outside the Top 10 and I'm still a sucker for the crappy Christopher Bell starting spot.
I'm hoping to have more time to give you a better breakdown for Sunday's race #2.
