    Other than William Byron, it looks like all who went to the rear were near the rear already.

    Yeah. Moving to the back really doesn’t matter anyways at Daytona (or Talladega).

    The bigger issue is pit road stalls … these don’t change either when a driver goes to the back.

    Pit road positions are set by qualfying (drivers choice, in order of qualifying … i.e the driver qualifying 40th is only the driver who truly gets “no choice”).

    I’ve never done much in XFIN, but tonight’s our last chance to score more tickets for tomorrow. (Thought I had 10, but it’s only 8.)

    Current thought is just make a lineup with each of the top 5K drivers. Pretty basic, but I’m not willing to invest more funds than that. I mentioned I have no luck in XFIN,..

    They should be able to get at least half the race in today if they start racing immediately.

  • gje627

    My Xfinity lineups are almost identical to my third- and fourth-tier Cup lineups from three years ago.

    What happened to White?

    Looks like DK is not scoring him.

    I’m wondering about Josh Williams. -21.55 points on DK, but no upside-down car emoji?

    Josh Williams is still running … 4 laps down in 40th. He had problems twice in the first few laps.

    No clue why White isn’t being scored.

    Williams made it to -15.55, woo! In my book, that’s crawling, not running. My other XFIN lineup features Alex Labbe, who actually does have the upside-down car emoji.

    Anyways, I need to get my real lineups finalized for tomorrow.

    One of my 2 XFIN lineups has four drivers in negative numbers. I’ve never seen anything like it. 8 laps to go and the total DK score for the six is -5.65.

    Interesting Daytona 500 numbers for tomorrow’s race …. As I work on lineups through the night, I may add some more …. I have written (actually mostly revised) 7 algorithms for the year, that theoretically when combined should always include the single optimal DK lineup within (generally) the first 300 lineups returned.

    Looking forward to testng tomorrow.

    3,572,344 — total possible DK lineups at or below DK $50,000 salary cap (6-driver lineup)

    634,392 — total possible FD lineups at or below FD $50,000 salary cap (5-driver lineup)

  • ifthethunder

    15 drivers in 8 lineups here, although now it’s tinkering time. Mostly cars starting 21st or lower.

    Hello fellas! Let the races begin! Hope the weather cooperates! I’m going Hams and Kyle and also like Austin Dillon. Cole Custer value. Thoughts on Cindric? Was thinking about him a little 🤔

    Hamlin and Cindric are in my pool. Also I just checked DK Sportsbook for promotions. They have:

    “3’s a crowd this Valentine’s Day! Get Denny Hamlin to finish Top 3, boosted to +333!”

    It’s not a huge deal: $10 gets you $30 without it, $43.30 with it. (Max bet is $25 with the boost.) Think I’ll do it.

    I have what is perhaps a dumb question.

    Why does FD start at 2:30 and DK start at 3:00?

  • homers1226

    pray, racer introductions,etc ,,start your engines ,drive around track for 5 minutes

    oh , and 30 ads

    Every year I tell myself I’m done with nascar. And every year I keep playing nascar. Why do I do this to myself.
