    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.

    Thanks for the response. I’ve seen where he has said he is better, but still keeping the backup driver there is still a bit bothersome and making me fade the 2.

    Is Almirola viable?

    with new set up

    he could easily dom 1st stage

    or 1st early caution

    @hcassidy said...

    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?

    Since Kes started the race, if he isn’t feeling well and Cindric comes in at some point, You will get the points that the #2 scores. Of course, unless, it is during a caution, they likely will go down a lap if they swap during green.

    That said, at Coop posted, Kes will feeling better and it would be shocking if he didn’t finish race.

    Considering I am far from a max enter guy and have a few gpps win and top 5s each of the last 3 years, you are wrong. My first year, 3 years ago, played around $50 per week, 2 years ago upped it to close to $100 and last year I upped it to $100-200 per week as I got better at it and depending on my feel for the particular race. Plus I work every other Sunday so some weeks I play less than others due to work.

    So you are wrong.

  • homers1226

    harvick going to lead last 2 stages

    Yep, and now I look like an idiot for fading him lol. Literally all that needed to happen was for him to not lead any laps and it would be fine
