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!
FRIDAY 1:15 PM EASTERN TIME -- ADDING A FEW NOTES IN BOLD BELOW
I am very nervous about this race -- and particularly the first lap -- for two reasons. First, we have a very jumbled up field because the starting order was essentially set by the Daytona superspeedway result. So we've got some very weak trucks and drivers starting near the front and some very strong trucks and drivers starting in the middle and back of the field. Second, we've got a lot of newcomers who are racing for the first time in the Trucks Series and/or for the first time at the Daytona road course. Add this to there being no practice or qualifying and it's very concerning. In short, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see a pile up in the very first turn.
We've also got rain to contend with today making the chance for chaos even higher. And if the grass is wet and muddy, going off course at the wrong spot could be a killer.
