    Playing out ownership projections in my head for the drivers starting T10 and it’s obvious Byron will be the lowest but I think AJ comes in next lowest due to his starting position and recent bad luck. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him go under 10% or right at that number. Could this be the year he bites back and finishes T5 after people have been playing him at higher ownerships the last few years to only be burned by his bad luck. If he finishes just 5th he will probably be in a winning lineup at his price. Could actually be a very good GPP at that ownership and price.

    Hey guys and gals….

    A little unpaid recommendation here….

    Check out Stevie’s package this week….

    Sonoma’s a tough race to call for the “ordinary folk” but his race analysis and driver-by-driver breakdown this week are killer-good !!!

    Best of the year….

    Given his advice versus the field, you could crush a GPP tomorrow !!!

    I think you can do a 1-week if you so desire….

    Too cheap not to try !!! :)

  • wormworth

    Speaking of Stevie, why don’t you do head to head’s this weekend? I like going against the best.

    Head’s?

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but your post sounds kind of “pissy”

    If you’re talking cash…. That’s not my game….

    Only GPPs….

    Regardless of the sport, I play to my strengths…. And don’t waste money where I don’t belong…..

    Maybe you could do it though, if that’s where your strength is…..

    I’m up over $160K this year in DK NASCAR GPPs alone…. so I’ll stay there….

    I’ve found the secret in DFS is not only knowing where you’re good, but more importantly knowing where you suck….

    I know where I suck….

    Thanks for the invite, though. :)

    Hilarious !!!

    Thanks for making my day !!! :)

    I was getting too many matching lineups, I stopped playing h2h on DK. I play h2h on FD and a ton of 3-man and 5-mans on DK

    i guess when someone said play vs the best gje627 assumed they meant him…anyone want to argue that point?

  • decker91

    I know we usually fade the pole sitter at road courses but Larson on the pole is it still a fade?

  • futoo

    Does anyone have advice on solid picks in each tier..I have no clue in nascar or about this track

  • gje627

    RIP Jason Johnson…. A true gentleman and an amazing dirt-track racer.

    You will be missed….

    Kahne or Wallace today? I’m assuming Wallace will be higher owned but who will score more points?

    Khane is the play here. Rookies are terrible at Sonoma

    That’s what I have been thinking, but that 35 starting position for Wallace keeps staring at me

    Just by watching a little bit of practice and qualifying, Bubba Wallace looks absolutely lost out there. Even with that starting position, I’m not touching him this weekend.

    I prefer DiBenedetto over both.

  • gje627

    Chris Cook only driver going to the back today (unapproved adjustments).

    So then why did you enter?

  • Luctyl99

    @depalma13 said...

    Why if I may ask?

  • depalma13

    @Luctyl99 said...

    Why if I may ask?

    He’s 5k, a savings of 1500 which opens up better high end drivers. His car is faster than where he qualified and last year proved he can handle the track.

    Good enough for me, I had Kahne and menard but you may have just talked me into blaney and dibenedetto
