    jwayne…larson would not get points for passing 40-26 if moved to back today…it would have to be yesterday if i am reading cooper correct…i understand the dom points but thought he would get the differential points but i guess he will not…unless he can stay out during pits and catch rain out

    You are missing the point — Larson’s ultimate value would not change due to the penalty, because he would pass all of the cars he moved behind without any problem, so it’s just as if he was starting in his original spot. If one is starting further up a la Kyle, the penalty is much more debilitating, as their value lies in the ability to dominate.

    Just to correct some misinterpretation of the rules for everyone, if a driver was moved to the back yesterday, he would STILL have been scored from his qualifying position. Thus, the time of qualifying is key NOT the day they were moved to the back. I.e., anything that requires a driver to move to the back AFTER qualifying (where starting positions are set), will move the driver to the back but said driver will still be scored from their qualifying position.

    NASCAR fans are very loyal…I always wondered how this translated over to DFS with players playing favorite drivers..today I saw a good example I believe, Elliott starts 13th and owned 20% while Bowyer starts 12th and is 13% owned…Elliott has the track history but Bowyer has been far superior this year. Neither is really a dom so playing off point diff and that being one point this week. I would say 3-5% of Elliott ownership is strictly due to his name, perhaps a few more percentage points.

    not sure i follow that coop…a few weeks ago a guy got moved to back and everyone said he was a great play because he would gain position fast

    It all depends on if you get moved to the back before or after qual.

    Before qual (and you don’t attempt to qual), then you’re scored from the back… after qual, you’re scored from where you qual.

    It can be confusing.

    Edited to add: as gje pointed out, if they run at least one qual lap, they’ll be scored from their qualifying. They are scored from the rear only if they didn’t complete a qual lap.

    Best rule of thumb to follow is you should assume that the driver will be scored from the starting position next to there name as that is how DK has it in there system.

    Went 100 percent larson/kennington/ragan

  • gje627

    The starting position/scoring position is really pretty simple….

    Qualifying sets starting positions.

    Any move to the back after qualifying and the driver is scored from their qualifying position.

    This is not only true in NASCAR fantasy, but for official NASCAR scoring too. Thus, the driver rating for the drivers moving to the back will be artificially low…. Especially for Kyle Busch since he’s dropping the most positions to start the race.

    When is this starting?

    The track was almost dry but….

    The rain became heavy again and they will need to start all over…. So, probably an hour or so.

    Follow Bob Pockrass for updates.

  • homers1226

    looks like the track is real wet now

  • gje627

    Drivers are reporting to their cars….

    Looks like they will be starting soon.

  • CSMWSU17

    More rain about 35-40 miles out. Stage 2 has to be complete (120 laps) before the race is considered official, not the halfway mark at 100 laps

  • gje627

    Drivers will be on the track in four (4) minutes…. 4:30 ET.
