    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.

    IMPORTANT !!!

    Kyle Larson fails inspection 3 times.

    Starts from the rear !!!

    DROP LARSON !!!

    THIS IS NOT A TEST !!!

  • gje627

    ALEX BOWMAN FAILS INSPECTION 3 TIMES TOO.

    Check your lineups.

  • Element828

    @jason88cubs said...

    Wait….so Larson is starting from the back but will still be scored as starting on the pole on draft kings correct? Yea I’m dropping him quickly

    Yes he will be scored from the pole. he will get back to the front but this helps the drivers starting up front a whole lot.

  • mambaland

    How about FD scoring!

  • mambaland

    So bowman and Larson get out? Both fd and dk ?

  • jstevens2k11

    Damnit…..had a full Larson fade today (before the news)

  • elmore0631

    Elliott or Logano?

  • tristanwolf

    ok im all off larson but is bowman still viable? shouldnt take him that long to get back, no?

  • mambaland

    @Element828 said...

    Yes he will be scored from the pole. he will get back to the front but this helps the drivers starting up front a whole lot.

    Why does it help other drivers? Other than gaining. 1 spot? Sorry if dumb ?? And please confirm scoring on FD will have same impact as DK

    harvick or truex will start getting dominator points right away now.

    edit- on DK sorry i dont play FD someone else will have to help with that

    One less potential dominator to worry about.

  • mambaland

    Thanks… what percent is too much Harvick and truex now. Quick player replace put me over 75pct total on both

  • gje627

    Harvick will start on the outside lane, even though he is moving to the “pole.”

    Truex Jr will start on the inside lane.

    Possibly, early advantage Truex Jr.

    We’ll see….

    EDIT: Technically, Harvick not moving to the pole, but he will start first…. Just thought I would clarify…. :)

  • WVUDoss

    Yeah I think it’s too much to overcome to keep Larson.

    And this track is a lot like the plate tracks in wreck avoidance regard, since there’s no infield for crashes to wash into, and there have been maaaaaaaaany track-blocking wrecks that catch people up in the back 2/3 of the field.

    I’m all over Bowman. This news lowered his ownership and he fits perfectly in my gpp. Oh boy.

    In the race yesterday didn’t the outside lane have the advantage?

  • gje627

    @elmore0631 said...

    All depends….

    Generally on starts the lower lane is preferred, at least until later in the race when rubber builds on the higher lane.

    HOWEVER, today the track is still rubbered-up (a little) from yesterday…. Not unusual for concrete.

    Personally, I think here it’s a toss-up….

    Should be a good start !!!

  • RiskyBiscuits

    Wouldnt you want Larson on FD if his starting position is scored from the back and not the pole? Im new to thinking about NASCAR beyond left turns, so please dont judge me if that is a stupid question.

  • mambaland

    Can anyone confirm that same scoring applies to FD. You do gain and lose points for. Moving up or down I think

  • gje627

    I checked….

    Interestingly, last Spring Kyle Busch was on the pole and chose the lower lane and he took the immediate lead. In the Fall race, Martin Truex Jr started on the pole and he chose the upper lane and he took the lead right away…

    Should be “Even-Steven” !!!

    He’s scored from the pole.

  • Element828

    Larson moving to the back helps Harvick or truex a ton as the one who gets out front first should dominate the whole first stage. Im hoping harvick as i chose him over truex lol

  • gje627

    Kyle Larson 24% owned in the DK Piston (big contest)….

    Thanks boss.

    That’s about what he should be after moving to the back.
