    Now I’d like pretty much the entire rest of the field to crash out. If we’re gonna make things interesting, let’s make them REALLY interesting.

    Clearly shows what the best strategy was. Complete bull shit all the place diff cars are the ones who wrecked.

    It’s crazy that the guys I came all the way from the back to the front crashed first

    I appreciate someone earlier saying don’t go higher than 60% on any single driver as in Nascar there are always crashes!! Thank you! Can totally see a newb going all in on one or two guys. Haven’t watched much been saw the crashes, hope no one was injured

    Not sure I agree with that. Certainly has its merits but it is in no way the only strategy. Like trying to avoid a MC in Golf. Going 100% is a strategy that is sound as another. I was ranked 76th last year and 714 / 5,588 it says now. I would not be considered an expert but I understand the different GPP strategies.

    60% is a good rule for this particular race.

    At this point I’d be happy just breaking even on the $14 I threw at this dumpster fire of a race.

    I am somehow profiting currently. Makes 0 sense.

    That’s going to change for better or worse before it’s all said and done. I hope for you it’s for the better.

    I’m 90% Gaughan. I loved him to score solid points this race. Just wish the entire rest of my Gaughan LUs didn’t crash out smfh.

    Have him 30%

    At this point, I’m hoping for 5 overtimes like yesterday’s race. Get most of the field taken out and maybe get lucky with some lineups.

    The guy said roughly 40% of drivers are involved in crashes each year at Daytona. I don’t watch nascar but if that is true for any other sport, I don’t see how going 100% on anyone is sound if there is a 40% chance he will be injured. I don’t know about the other races and appreciate all advice on here. Can’t always be like this, but I read many saying Daytona is nothing more than a crapshoot.

    IMO anyone surprised of the outcome is probably a newb like me. Without this forum I would have probably played 100% on the pre-race chalk, most of which has crashed.

  • Beckhams3Fingers

    Wow Blaney seriously wants to lead this entire race doesn’t he.

    Leads entire race, loses on last lap.

    Over 300 with Brad. Lame.

  • billholler

    I have ZERO lineups left with 6 drivers. Thankfully my cash LU is still kicking butt and hopefully will save my weekend.

  • Beckhams3Fingers

    How is Michael Waltrip NOT gay?? Oh wait, he probably is lmao!

  • tristanwolf

    my one live one left is currently 4/35671 in the $1. just need 56 laps crash free hah.

    Golf has similar ‘s of getting MC. Going 100 on 1-2 players has won everything many times. Just look at the opposite. If that car gets through its safe on 100% of your teams.

    Shits about to get REALLY interesting. Buck up boys and girls!

  • timusbr

    I dont know anything abt NAS but played today, I got to say the place differential is the key
    I am running 5 guys in top 8 and that is good but not great. Is this analysis correct?
