    Sorenson did what was expected. Ran the whole race and got 34th.

    Wound up 68/235, all those positions lost by Kyle Busch really hurt.

    Obviously regret not using Almirola. Almirola+anybody really over Kyle/Sorenson

    it would’ve been Elliott or Erik Jones (based on the savings from Kyle down to Almirola)

    Bet $51 and won $54. Had a decent 330 point lineup… of course only played it in the double ups!!! Haha.

    Kyle Busch was painful, but Ty Dillion killed my lineups. I knew McDowell is a good driver, but I just couldn’t justify taking him with his high starting position and terrible car.

    I think Parker Kligerman and Michael McDowell are the backmarkers to watch, they both tend to outdrive what their cars should do…

    Congrats to stevietpfl on qualifying for the Fantasy Racing World Championship on DK.

    Johnson will be in winning GPP lineup

    Gotta give credit where credit is due … JJ was in the winning lineup DK Big $10. 5th place finish +60 Laps led + 14 fast laps for 57 Fpts. Unique lineup 50k. No driver under 7300 … Byron and Suarez the low owned difference makers. Didnt even have Kurt Busch. One of many things that make Nascar tough … wrecks and any car can go bust.

    Interesting stat that tells you how different this race was. The optimal lineup for this race had an average start of 8.17 which is the lowest for an optimal lineup for the 2016, 2017 and 2018 season (my data doesn’t go back any further). The next lowest was 10.67 for the fall 2016 Kansas race. Prior to this race the range for Texas was 12.12 to 24.17. The 12.12 came from the 2016 spring race.

    I can’t believe Kurt didn’t end up in winning lineup. Jones not going back to the lead after last pit stops cycled through cost me a lot. Oh well, those things happen, I was just happy my feel on the race was pretty accurate. Larson killed a lot of my lineups too.

    I had 4 lineups.. 1 comfortably in the money, 2 literally bubbled it, and one way off.

    The driver I was most disappointed in was Elliot. I clearly put too much faith in him here and was looking at the wrong things leading upto the race.

    That is some good stat hunting there and makes me feel a little better. I did good at Martinsville but got torched this race. Jones, Elliott got me too but Larson was the painful one. Hope I can chalk it up to an anomaly and bounce back for Bristol
