      RG Tiered Ranking

    This should be a fun week as we will have a lot of people looking at recent history and jumping all over Kyle Larson. Larson has no doubt done well, obviously winning 3 straight here but don’t confuse yourself into thinking he is on some Truex like run at this track. He has put up dominator points and has been in the winning lineups but he isn’t just crushing the field. Truex has almost led as many laps and has almost twice as many fast laps as Larson does in these past 3 races. Keselowski has led 121 laps over these past 3 and Chase Elliot also has a 110.6 driver rating over these past 3 here. If Larson isn’t showing top of the chart speed this week do not be afraid to go under weight on him and catch everyone else thinking he is unbeatable here.

    Also do not over look Matt Kenseth again this week, is his car as good as what he had last year, no but it is good enough to run top 15/20 and this is another one of his better tracks. If you look past his recent finishes here (avg 16 over the last 3) he actually has the 8th highest driver rating over those 3 here and 32 fastest laps in those 3 races. So if DK wants to keep pricing him in the low 7K’s than keep riding him.

    This week is all about speed, speed, and more speed…like you said it will be interesting to see how much speed Larson has on Friday. Also will be interesting to see if Rousch has speed along with RCR. Both have been up and down with there speed so far this year.

    Looking forward to this week when the 20 puts the 22 into the wall and gets on the radio and says “apologize to the 22 team, that was my bad”.

    yea, I felt Erik’s pain on that one. I’m sure Jones will get him back at some point.

    Will have to pay attention to this, good to see xfinity using same tires.

    Brad Keselowski tweet
    Where do I ask to be taken off a press release?

    Our team (and several others) tested multiple tire compounds and recommended every one of them but this one. In no way do I wanna be associated with this decision.

    Kes led most of those laps from the pole last August I believe before fading during the race and Larson led nearly as much in the June race before coming back to win it. How does that saying go? Clean air is…

    Haha I played $5 on Tuesday and yesterday. Doubled up both days. I put $10 in the early slate and $10 in tonights slate. So far so good on the early. I don’t have anywhere near enough time to look at baseball, so I guess it’s good to play a weekly DFS sport.

    8 Fords, plus Chase and Kyle in the top 10 during first practice.

    Any body have any idea what data is best to use for the race this week with practice rained out? I would guess speed this year would be one of if not the most important factor heading into this week. It will definitely be interesting.

  • futoo

    who are the most likely to lead the most laps based on starting position? Help a newbie lol

    I would say Ku Busch and Harvick. From what I heard the outside lane was dominant in the xfinity race today, I know different package but I would think the same will hold true tomorrow. I don’t know if Ku Busch will lead many laps because he has Harvick starting behind him and he should pass somewhat quickly. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Harvick as the big dom with 0, 1 or 2 drivers leading 10-20 laps. Harvick appears to have the dominant car based off his speed and it’s going to be tough to beat him unless he beats himself on pit road or rare engine issue/blown tire. This is a race were it pays to be out front in clean air and to pass the fastest car will be a huge challenge tomorrow.

    Awesome.thanks coop

    Does anyone know if I’m able to mass enter gpps from my iPad? Like if I build 150 lineups can I export that somehow to a CSV that I then can upload to DK to enter lineups? Or do I have to have a computer to do this? I’m traveling and don’t have my laptop.

  • WVUDoss

    Man alive, Larson starting 26th is going to be a chalk machine.

    I could envision laying off him if he started anywhere in the top 10, but 26th is too far back.

    He’s probably been the best Chevy lately, especially at the longer downforce tracks.

  • BobbyTheBrain

    tread carefully on this race could get rain shortened with a VERY VERY random winner and some top drivers finishing in the back due to pit strategy and weather

  • superjon

    First time multi entering Nascar. Trying it on FD.

    My main core is

    Johnson and Harvick – 100%
    Elliott – 80%

  • futoo

    Why are you so high on those 3

  • krighton

    Shoving all my chips to the center…..all in

  • DefinitelyMiami

    Not sure how he can be “challk” When people will be on 4,18. 78 starting midpack, 2 possibly leading plenty of laps. Lots of ways to go. 48 is starting midpack, is he chalk too?

  • nickybarnes2369

    First time playing NASCAR, feel good with understanding needing a mix of dominator points and place diff…got a lineup started with McMurray, Ku. Bush, Harvick, Larson….good balance? or does having to punt the other 2 spots make a disadvantage?

    I wouldnt put Kurt Busch in. Should drop pretty fast and get negative points. Harvick should get out front early and lead a lot of laps so im high on him. Larson will be super chalk so keep that in mind.
