    Growing weary of the drudgery of the NBA season so….

    With 18 days until the start of the NASCAR preseason, and 25 days until the Daytona 500, today I dusted-off the old NASCAR database to review some historical data and plot my strategy for the 2019 season !!!

    So far, I’ve hypothesized a few early-season and very preliminary predictions, developed some “potential” new metrics and analytical approaches, and made some changes to my NASCAR lineup builder/optimizer.

    While I know it’s early and therefore this post/thread will go largely ignored, does anyone else have any early thoughts on the 2019 NASCAR season… good, bad, or ugly?

    In the meantime, for any die-hards out there, to whet your appetite (yes, “whet” is correct… if you want to wet your whistle please grab a Budweiser !!!) below please find some stuff preliminary to the start of the season…. Also at least, and until the season starts maybe we can all use this thread as a general forum to share thoughts/ideas/data regarding the 2019 NASCAR season.

    Nonetheless, regardless of whether or not anyone replies (or is even interested), periodically I will dump some sh*t…. uh, I meant some very interesting and provocative data and analysis below…. :)

    Hope to hear from someone… anyone… soon !!!

    EDIT: When I post tables, frequently the entire table is difficult to read. If anyone has problems viewing each column simply zoom-out and all columns should be visible. If this doesn’t correct the issue, please simply let me know and I will try to fix….

    Nothing like going from winning $104 to winning $980 including a tie for 1st in the $8 on the final lap! NASCAR sweats are the best. Had 12 $8s so that’s a solid start to the season (btw, Stevie’s NASCAR product is amazing).

    A 40 car train with no passing is going to make this the worst Daytona 500 ever.

    Any word on the slow DK payouts? I was wondering if it had anything to do with the new DQ rules for failing post race inspection, but there doesn’t seem to be any delay on Fanduel.

    I don’t know, but it’s certainly annoying.

    That’s just what I was thinking. But how long is NASCAR supposed to take for the new post inspection results? I figured they’d post something ‘final’ at least the night of the race.

    And if FD is using unofficial results and DK is using post inspection official results, then strategy for playing Harvick should change a lot depending on the site :)

    I just got paid. Woot.

    Played a lineup each in the $8 duel events. Made $20 in the second duel so $4 profit!

    The 500 will be interesting. I’m a big fan of picking only drivers starting 20th or worse for 50/50 and then for the big money events doing the same but including 1 to 2 drivers that have the potential to lead 30 or more laps.

    Inspection is 90 minutes after the race, if that is the excuse DK is using it is a bad one.

    Trucks paid out pretty soon after NASCAR posted the official results. Hopefully that pattern continues.

    I left $3Gs #SETHYATES style lyin’ on the table on FANDUEL VROOM VROOM single entry GPP LU – none of my guys in FD SINGLE ENTRY are in the top….hopefully it’s a 98+ %-tile LU……….

    going to do a cheap M-E and try to go 3 bottom 25 — 1-2 mid and 1 ELITE….

    P.S. — almost 4got — i try 2 be honest most of the time..
