    As is my Christmas season tradition, I’m cleaning/updating the old NASCAR database and I have a simple, but longshot/oddball question.

    Does anyone here remember when DK and FD, respectively, began offering NASCAR daily fantasy Cup series contests?

    The reason I ask, is while I have driver/track/etc. data for all years from 2005 to current (with 2005 being the first year NASCAR began recording/reporting “Loop” data) I only have driver salaries, again Cup only, for each race for DK from 5/24/2015 (Charlotte) to current; and for FD from 4/29/2018 (Talladega) to current.

    Thus, I’m simply wondering if I’m missing any races prior to the driver salary “from” dates listed above.

    P.S.: Since I doubt I will get many (or any?) replies … unless I get lucky and reps from DK and FD see this question … I may bump this thread a time or two before finally giving up … so consider this your fair warning. :)

    You are absolutely correct on the DK start date being the 2015 600 from Charlotte

    Based on it being a 3 year deal it feels logical for the start date on FD to be the one you have but I cannot tell you that with 100% certainty.

    Hey ajs1281 ….

    Thanks a ton for the quick reply.

    Figured I was close on the FD salaries since their NASCAR product is still relatively new but was totally unsure for DK.

    Time to crunch some numbers !!!

    Thanks again and Happy Holidays !!! :)
