    Larson is so overowned. He’s awesome here for sure, but not to the point he should have double the ownership than a Harvick or Kyle Busch in some contests.

    I’m very shocked at that.

    Even considering the value play of Larson, statistically Johnson makes just as much if not more sense there too and not many picked him. Weird. I’d have faded him instead of playing him if I’d realized he be owned that much.

    Green Flag at 4:01 in Dover

  • Kassdog

    Why was there no official thread for today?

  • Kassdog

    Welp see you guys tomorrow.

  • yisman

    I don’t know, Kass

    I guess the person who usually creates it was not around to do it.

    Very odd what NASCAR did.

    Scheduled a green flag for around 4 PM with poor track conditions and a wet forecast.

    The Dover race has been postponed until noon ET on Monday. It will be televised on FS1.

    This is the first Dover Cup Series rainout since 2007 — and according to the track’s records, just the third Cup race rainout in track history.

    To your point regarding ownership for Larson vs Busch and Harvick I think you have to look at the math/value. Kyle Busch starting where he is on a track that is hard to pass in addition to this package making track position more important at his price will be more difficult for him to be optimal. This race has a max of 300 dominator points up for grabs and if Kyle wins the race he will still have to have to have round 75+ points (25%) to make value. The comp caution helps for sure. But I honestly don’t see him getting up in the top 3 or in a position to lead laps until at least the third stage. Larson can lead some laps gather some fast laps and still end up with a top 5 finish and be optimal. Larson can get 25% dom points quicker, and not to mention Logano who was super fast on the long run. I was honestly hoping Busch would be higher owned… he can make it to the top 10 quick for sure but when he starts racing around faster cars he will most defiant stall out. In order for Him to be optimal the guys up front need to under perform, and we will we need to have more cautions/wrecks to allow some of the 5k guys to move up. I’m not sure what to expect from Harvick recent history says he’ll run 3-5.

    Another interesting take. There has been 2 race winners (non plate tracks) in the past two seasons at least that have not been in the draft kings optimal lineup, both have been Kyle Busch where he started outside the top 15.

    Now that I’ve said all of this we will have a caution before the competition caution and Kyle Busch will end up in top 5 after 50 laps.

    There has not been one last couple of weeks. Wish we could get some more Nascar forum banter going.

    I have made one every week but the last two weeks, partially because of what you said (not much interest). This week, I was out of town for work and didn’t feel like messing with it. If people actually are stopping by and missing the thread being posted weekly, I will get back to posting them. I will start working on the thread for Kansas next weekend.

  • tristanwolf

    truex orig. starting 13th bowman 5th preece 29 and tift 32 to the rear. shouldn’t be a big deal. bump down to bowman but he was probably pretty low owned anyways. still think preece is good value and only 15%. i’m about even with the field on larson (51%). guess he’s fast so he chase or joey should get a lot of dominator points today. too bad they didn’t open up more contests today. good luck everyone.

    It is literally given to the driver who records the fastest lap each go around. A lot of times it is the person out front, but following pit stops once adjustments have been made, or if people start pitting out of cycle, the fastest laps could be spread throughout the field.

    thank you!

    my lineup sucks

    I knew when I made it that it wasn’t very good, but I had to rush to get it in

    What stung was seeing it locked for 22 hours and being unable to do anything about having Tifft.

  • MotownGreek

    Looks like RG got confused by the rain delay. Either that or I got 1st in every NASCAR contest I entered on Sunday despite my DK account saying otherwise, lol

    I had to go check mine so I could quick take a picture and frame it before they get it fixed lol

  • starstx

    Holy balls I did terrible this week … hope you guys fared better

  • Kassdog

    0-20. So couldn’t do any worse if I tried.

  • ChrundleTheGreat

    This was my second week playing Nascar. Talladega felt like anything could happen over the last 1/4th of the race, Dover seemed in control for Truex for 75+ laps.

    Unrelated, but going too heavy on the bottom tier guys really burned me. Seems like anyone could fall to the back due to a crash or engine issue, but it would take a miracle for someone like Quin Houff to have won this week.

    The track dictates how you have to approach your lineup construction. Talladega, for example, is a super speedway. Longer tracks allow you to easily take the bottom guys and gain significant points from position gained. On a short track like Dover, you need to have the lap leader. More laps in the race, more points available to the leader and fastest lap. 400 laps at Dover opposed to the 170ish or so at Talladega.

    With all that said, I had no Truex this week, so no money for me.

  • archieadams

    Just so RG is aware if not already, everybody’s RG profile got credited for finishing 1st in any NASCAR contest they played Sunday…probably want to fix that lol
