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 love this track for IndyCar but it's a little weird watching the Xfinity cars here. Hard to handicap this one a bit because final practice was largely washed out due to rain. No rain is expected for the race. Only 75 laps, so not a ton of laps led and fastest lap points out there. But also tough to pass, so can't go all in on position difference either.
Sam Hornish won this race last year in the 22 car for Penske. Austin Cindric is in that car this week. He always seems to have a problem at some point in every race. Possible GPP play, but I don't love him in a cash game set-up unless he starts 10th or worse. Last year was a bit of an odd race too. Several late crashes led to a total of 16 cars being out at the end of the race. Guys like Justin Allgaier, Cole Custer and Ryan Reed were all out. Almost turned into a plate track with guys from the back finishing in the Top 20. That was a bit of an outlier and I wouldn't expect anything that extreme again this year.
Here's a real short bullet point list of the drivers I will be focusing on in my lineups. Of course if other series regulars start way back, jump on them as well. I won't have time to update after qualifying:
