  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    I wouldn't say "meaningless," .... It's more like **trivia,** as that's all it meant to be.... Again, like I state in my original post, charting the movement and point potential for all starting places working together is, in fact, useful to look for the ... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    In your original comment your threw out a bad result for a driver that started 18th, **BUT** you didn't throw out any other bad results for any other drivers. so that would necessarily, and **BY DEFINITION** skew your analysis.... **Throw-out bad results ... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    That's why it's a **Fun Fact :)** With a race sample of 12 races, aberrations and outliers are always going to have a significant impact on the results/rankings..... **BUT**... they will have a significant impact on all the other starting positions as we... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    My bad, **thanks for the correction**.... In my spreadsheet, the 24th row is actually the 23rd starting position since the top row is a header. Since, I'm typing though :) Another **Fun Fact** (yee-haw!!). The 18th starting position, again historically,... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    Quoting my earlier comments -- rude I know -- stating the **+24th starting position has historically been the best (by far) starting position for DK fantasy points at Sonoma+** Tomorrow, -Brad Keselowski- Jimmie Johnson starts 24th.... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    I agree, as I mentioned in my write-up regarding the importance of practice results. It does, however, cover all the available variables to analyze (admittedly, NASCAR data is rather limited). Thus, regardless of the generation of car used by NASCAR, qual... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    Hey all, thanks for your prayers and kind words. Means a lot to me and my wife. I have another day off today, so don't be surprised if I post more moderately useful statistics-related blather today :) Also, for those seriously interested in DFS-related N... Read More

    Thanks for the kind words. She had cancer, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She almost died, twice, but she had a bone marrow transplant and is in remission now. The chemotherapy, as especially the transplant, kind of threw her system out of whack. Given everythi... Read More

    Amen brother. To respond to @bigperm0107.... You can only calculate so much. Even at 90% certainty, in NASCAR, the exception seems to be the rule and the 10% seems to come true more often than not. Personally, I thoroughly enjoy discrete mathematics, p... Read More

  • Nascar Cup Series at Sonoma, 6/25

    Agree, again.... This only accounts for about five or six of the pit stalls out of 37-40 drivers in each race this year.... I've tried using pit-time as a variable, but that can be separated by driver time to pit and driver exit time, and then the time i... Read More
