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!
Should be a crazy weekend and very difficult to predict with no track history whatsoever. 109 laps, so just over 25 laps led points and 50 fastest lap points are out there. Looking at the most recent Sonoma and Watkins Glen road course races, we tend to see two or three drivers getting the bulk of those extra points. We've tended to see one guy lead about 1/3-1/2 of the race with one or two other guys leading about 1/4 of the race and then a few more leading a handful of laps. There tends to be a similar distribution of fastest laps. So, we'd like to get some of those extra points in our lineup, but position difference and a solid finishing position are going to be most critical this weekend.
Here are some guys I am focusing on heading into the weekend:
More to follow as we move closer to race day.
