    Should be another good week for fans of the upside-down car emoji. In other words, not sure how much time to spend on making lineups.

    Whomever will be crossing the finish line.

    I really don’t have an idea. I think people are mostly fading Kyle Larson because he’s got the pole in a wreck fest. But he doesn’t need to win to win the regular season title, just to finish with 32 points. So maybe he plays it safe and finishes, and that’s an angle?

    Other than that, I got nothing. Min-cashed 2 of my 4 XFIN lineups though.

    I only dabble in Nascar, play a couple cheap entries each week. I find it hard not to play Larson though as he could conceivable lead most of the race at that low price.

    From what I understand this is a real S-show.

    Here is what I am doing in a 20 max after some research.

    Whittling the pool down to 20 drivers. Setting a rule for only two of Austin Dillon, Joey Logano and Grala in a lineup. Setting a maximum of 50 percent to each of the drivers. Then with the drivers I have adjusting the percentages based on starting position so Denny Hamlin 10 percent cap, Chase Elliot 15 percent and up and up until I get deep into the 20s. If that helps.

    Those 3 are the chalk for sure.

    P.S. Here’s Jim K.‘s contest:

    Who is Kaz Grala other than starting at 38? Kind of pricey to be chalk.

  • tmarohl

    Larson starting from the rear as he didn’t pass inspection.

  • yisman

    overlay on DK but I didn’t do the high dollar GPPs

    was very tough for me to figure out what to do

    went McDowell over Stenhouse and Alfredo.
    went Custer over Wallace

    Probably should’ve done 6 lineups because it was all very close.

    I’ve only played him before a few times when he was dirt cheap. Can’t remember if it ever worked out for me either.

    Daytona is a different beast though. I have 5 entries in the $2 K.o.t.S. qualifier and Grala is in 2 of them.
