    I made 3 LU’s and hoping for the best. I’ve only cashed out 1 time, but I still keep playing. Why? Haha

    Is it viable to not play anyone starting up front?

  • joephoto

    I spend a lot of time making my one 6 car lineup.

    Then watch and hope the 31 cars I didnt play all crash.

    I admit it, and I’m not the only one who does that.

    Sure. Maybe about 1/3rd of my lus have no one from top 10. With going with 3 of Harvick, Kes, Logano, Blaney and Chase in each. Sometimes, just 2 and using mid tier guys like Byron/Newman.

    Garrett Smithley is only 4800 on DK.

    There is a reason for that.

  • hcassidy

    So I’m seeing there will be a ‘Competition Caution at lap 35 today’ because of overnight rain. Will this give guys in the back of the field an advantage?

    I think there can a slight advantage. I ticked down my Almirola just a little bit. I added Kyle B to 1 $10 entry when I had none. I had almost no Kyle but felt like I need to add to 2 lus. (out of 30)

    starting from the back being scored from 6th in a back up car. Sounds like close to full fade to me. I had him 1 lu of 30 but added him to 2 more after comp caution news. Taking a big stand against him but less now.

    i guess im all in on car 95

    lol

  • hcassidy

    This may be a strange question, as I’ve only played nascar a handful of times. If the #2 car(Keselowski) can’t finish the race and they make a change to the backup driver, does DK score the car for the full race or till the lap a driver change was made since you are selecting the driver. Has this every happened before?

    DK uses nascar stats. As long as the driver starts they earn the points as long as they complete one lap. Btw, Kes says he is much better today.
