    Note: Under Track Details and Rankings, I standardized all rankings to 100 miles since miles per race is different among tracks. Since FanDuel is “new”, I calculated fantasy points for these races. Information above is Cup series only and therefore does not include information for the Xfinity series. Finally, as needed information above will be updated.

    My thoughts….Newman and McMurray perform well about every fifth race on average so will this be the one for them? They are also expensive for what you may not get out of them. RCR appears slow this week which is concerning. Dover is not a gas mileage race which means Newman has to actually race his way to the front vs playing strategy. They are typically boom or bust plays and if they don’t boom this week you will bust hard because there prices will not allow you to play better drivers and in most instances when you select them you have to really dumpster dive this week to get the elite drivers and the dumpster drivers really stink this week.

    I was thinking the same…They are expensive for drivers who may not even move to the front..was seeing if people was thinking the same lol

    What will ownership be on Busch, Harvick, Truex and Larson. I imagine most lineups will have two of them? I really think Chase comes in low….I think Truex comes in lowest of the four.

    My guess would be Harvick, Larson, Truex then Busch. I put Larson 2nd as people will see him on the pole and will just plug him in but I dont see him leading many laps. Truex and Busch would be close so it could go either way. I agree with chase coming in low and he has a fast car. I am also debating on Kes, Hamlim and Logono. I think you could put chase or one of those 3 with one of the top 4 mentioned.

  • Element828

    In my opinon like Gordon said during practice, Harvick has the car to beat. Larson wasnt happy with his car and I think Harvick passes him pretty quickly. Harvick had the best 15 and 20 lap averages and After Harvick i think truex and chase have good cars that can stay up front. Ive been trying different lineups and putting in Harvick and reaching down to Ragan, Bryon or Menard is looking like a good way to start your lineup then getting a coupe mid-range drivers and putting in a 2 denominator driver as your last pick with the salary you have left over

    Maybe because I am on iPad but did FD take nascar down? Maybe it’s best before I buy too many lotto tix on the big one
