    I think Hamlin beats Suarez to the line and leads the whole first stage. That’s 1/3 of the dominator points while Ky. Busch and Harvick have time to get to the front.

    are harvick and bush from back a horrible idea

    Is Kahne a 75%-100% lock today? I keep coming back to him. Starting last so he’s got a great ceiling.

    I guess it depends on how many lineups you’re playing. If only 10 or so, it sounds about right. If 150 or more, that might be a little high.

    For what it’s worth, Kahne did change his engine this morning. Not sure why as he looked good in practice and qualifying. Obviously, since his official start position is already dead last, this won’t impact him for fantasy purposes.

    Awesome. Thanks and good luck!!

    Overheating issue, changed it out yesterday before qualifying according to the twit machine…

    Given their salaries, they will both likely need to dominate a good portion of the race, since there are so many other substantially lower-price pure place differential drivers in the race.

    While I said I would have zero lineups including both, I did end-up with three (3) Harvick/Kyle Busch lineups; but this is a low percentage relative to the total number of lineups I’m playing.

  • mambaland

    when so many fail inspection how do they determine who goes furthest to back

    Owner points…. I discussed the difference between owner and driver points a couple of pages back.

    Thanks Coop !!!

    Had Stenhouse make his way into too many of my lineups. Might determine my success today.

  • mambaland

    thanks..i cant read but so many post and keep track

  • homers1226

    Stenhouse 4.7 %

    jones 11% owned

  • Cooper08

    Hard to believe that drivers like Bowman 9%, Ragan, 6% Ty Dillon 5%, etc are owned by people..I could list more but playing anyone other than 18 drivers with upside was just very risky.

  • homers1226

    Byron 41 % owned lol

    Sorry, didn’t mean to sound sarcastic.

    In the event that you didn’t know the difference, I just wanted to tell you where to find it. If you already know the difference, I didn’t wanted to waste your time explaining it.

    That’s all.

    Yeley and Chastain to rear but scored from starting position…I saw Yeley was over 1% owned and will start with negative points.

    i thought byron and kahne would both be way higher. ownership is pretty spread i am surprised a bit. g luck all.

    Looks like a bunch of the slower cars may just drop to back before the race begins…
