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 still don't like Truex much, but he retains some contrarian value in a large tournament if you want a role of the dice. On to the way I am looking at my lineup now:

The main dominator has led about 150 laps with the secondary dominator leading about 50-100 laps. We'll need at least one of those dominators in our lineup this weekend to hit those cash games. Onto the driver targets:
