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!
Been a great weekend so far cashing easily in the Truck and Xfinity Series races. Going for the weekend sweep on Sunday. I always try to be completely up front and honest here and, for this race, I have no idea what's going to happen. Sometimes admitting you don't know something is just what you have to do. And everything at this point is pure speculation because we have never seen all the cars on the track in race conditions with this new package. And with the way it looked in final practice, the entire field is going to be bunched up pretty closely, so I'm very concerned about incidents that would normally be 1-2 car deals turning into 7-8 car wrecks.
So my approach for this weekend is going to be to play a smaller bankroll for the week and use something like a super speedway lineup. We've got 10-12 really good teams and drivers starting from 17th on back. I am going to fill my lineup with those guys figuring that no one is going to dominate the race and that the way to rack up the points on Sunday will be on position difference points and fastest lap points from guys drafting their way up through the field. Keselowski, Almirola, Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman are some of my favorite choices.
Lastly, I just don't think there's anything to talk about or analyze with respect to track history, etc. We've never seen anything like this package run at Las Vegas so past history here means next to nothing. Likewise any history on 1.5 mile tracks since this is the very first time this package is being run at all. None of that stuff matters to me this weekend.
