    I guess more of an opinion then anything from the guys who play a lot of NASCAR. Do you find any benefit / hindrance to taking guys from the same team?

    Benefit. see Joe Gibbs Racing + the 78 car

    can you please explain, sorry I am a hockey guy LOL

    It can be very beneficial on certain tracks like Daytona and Talladega for drafting purposes but when the white flag flies it’s every man for themselves.

    Yeah thats what I was referring to. Other then 1 “team” just having a better set of drivers, on the track they are all trying to win right?

    Edwards bumped his teammate Kyle Busch out the way on final lap to win earlier this year, I don’t think they talked to each other for a week.

    No offense to anyone here, but I always stack teammates at least in one lineup. If not for the 48 wrecking today, I was looking pretty damn good with that lineup. Oh well, so be it, the 48 cost about $357.00 at that point of the race. But who knows. Damn pinball machine out there today. Hope you all had a good day! Keep digging!

    If all things were equal, I’d have to believe that it would be more likely for teammates to not finish in clusters. That being said, all things are not equal. Some teams are better funded and prepared than others. Teams also share information on setups, tracks, etc., and they also share similar equipment and may even share strategies. You may also find individuals that work together a bit better on and off the track, though I think that might come down to the individuals and not necessarily apply to all teammates.

    If we look at the Michigan results, we have Penske, Hendrick, Ganassi, Penske, Stewart-Hass, JGR, Stewart-Hass, RCR, Ganassi, and Stewart-Hass rounding out the top 10. I don’t recall if the Stewart-Hass top 3 guys worked together on the track today, but aside from them, there seems to be a decent spread among the top tier teams.

    Again, the apparent correlation may not even matter too much. Even if the Stewart-Hass top 3 drivers do correlate it doesn’t mean that all teams do. Look at JGR at Michigan: 6th, 14th, 33rd. Hendrick: 2nd, 13th, 16th, 39th. I think the “level” the team typically performs at is the primary predictor for that team … so top tier teams’ drivers will tend to finish near the top. Is that because they’re on the same team? Probably not. But if you stack the right teammates from top tier teams, you will do well because they tend to finish near the top.

    In other words, I probably wouldn’t stack Aric Almirola and Brian Scott because they’re on the same team. I wouldn’t have any expectation that they would do well together or even finish near each other. Logano and Keselowski on the other hand? For sure. They’re great picks even if they’re not on the same team.

    Makes sense…

    I dont’ find that Nascar stacking is something that helps you win more. Place Differential and finding the Dominate driver of the race is really where it is at.

    Each week is a little bit different and you really have to treat each and every weekend is it’s own animal.

    There are times though in GPPs that stacking 3 guys from 1 team can be a differentiated team you still can’t fit all of them on a team and you got to hit on the value guys.
