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!
I want to start this week's strategy with some trends. The "package" this week is relatively similar to what's been run in years past at the shorter tracks, so past history here could be more important. What we've seen at New Hampshire is that our dominators start up front -- usually in the Top 5. In fact, in the last three New Hampshire races, the pole winner has both led the most laps in each race and had the most fastest laps in each race. Let's look at a few details:
Looking at the shorter, flatter tracks run so far this year, the same type of trend holds up. The dominators have come from the very front of the field -- usually the Top 5 starters.
So where does all this leave us for driver targets. First, with 301 laps out there, I think we need to shoot for two dominators:
Who else to target:
