    So for XFIN today, the obvious big Kahunas are Briscoe and Cindric. I made 3 lineups, one or 2 of them are in each one. But I suppose if you really want to win tickets, you leave both out and hope they wreck.

    Truex, Suarez and Finchum all will start at the rear today. Suarez and Finchum failed tech two times, as did Truex. Truex also docked 20 points and crew chief James Small ejected as NASCAR has confiscated the rear spoiler. Also $35K fine to Small.

    I had none of them, but thanks for the update yisman. In other news, I got nothing from XFIN yesterday and am headed for a zero in Trucks today.

    Good luck to us both in the Cup!

    DK didn’t make the front row ticket-eligible today :(

    they sometimes screw that up

    I was going to use Hamlin over Harvick up top but I let McAbee and the other host talk me into using Harvick because they said he’d dominate the whole race.

    :(

    I made 5. 3 Harvick, 2 non-Harvick. None of them look great right now. (Shakes lucky rabbits foot.)

    P.S. Bob is being funny:

    Is the race still in just a delay?

    Race will be resumed tomorrow. And Harvick will still be a lap down.

    “If don’t race today, then expect Tuesday. Then what? My guess is NASCAR will do everything possible to race Texas before Martinsville, even if impacts Martinsville schedule. Hurricane Zeta path could impact logistics/plans as well. Wouldn’t rule out any contingency plan.” – Bob Pockrass

    Maybe. They really want to get it in, and air dryers apparently went out again 20 min ago.
    Fingers crossed.

    Logano says he’ll even drive a jet dryer. Pressed further about his activities at Texas with all the extra downtime, Logano says: “I don’t know if you guys realize, but I don’t have many friends at the racetrack.”

    Hah! He can always hang out with Wrecky. I don’t think Wrecky has too many friends either.

    True.

    Some of the drivers were talking about how they’re out of food, out of clothes, etc. aside from being bored.

    Food you can always buy takeout or whatever.

    Is it illegal in someway for DK to make new NASCAR contests with the drivers current position, as their starting position? Seems like people would play it. Maybe not. Just surprised they’re not taking advantage of it. They do in game contests for other sports. They’ve done new NASCAR contests when the race doesn’t start and gets delayed a day.

  • yisman

    Imagine the situation for people who bought tickets to this race…

    It’s quite a lot of people as the speedway was allowing 50% capacity.

  • someclevername

    This is my comeuppance for every time a bad call/stat screw up has gone my way – I now have to stare at Kevin Harvick’s -14 for all of eternity.

  • yisman

    It’s like with Best Ball. I have to stare at my bad picks all season on the contest page. At least those aren’t on my lineups page. Every time I view my lineups page for a week, -14 the first thing I see.
