Everything is still free. It will be posted later in the week. I apologize for the delays, but I just can’t keep up with everything. My family and full time job take priority ahead of a free spreadsheet.

It looks like this week is a plate race, so why kill yourself researching when at least half of the winning lineup will be fluky survival picks?
Drivers with little dirt experience, cars designed for aero dynamic parity on 1.5 mile concrete cookie cutter ovals not dirt, and a flawed dirt track are enough reasons to expect real life fun and DFS doom.
I'm not going to labor over podcasts, and read articles and stats from dirt races with actual cars designed for dirt with actual dirt competitors. I'd rather spend my time studying 2021 data and preparing for Martinsville. I will still put some work into the spreadsheet, about the same time I put into a plate race spreadsheet.

I wasn't really excited about doing Dirt research today, so I threw together a fantasy baseball spreadsheet. It's in beta mode, and I won't get to complicated with it because I am 95% focused on NASCAR, but the goal is to build a sheet that allows DFS players to identify good pitcher plays. Maybe, I will work in hitters as well. I'm not sure if I want to update the fangraphs scrape data (change the date) everyday, but if it's popular, I might try to figure something out.

This is a gratuitous and obnoxious victory lap, but it is worth it. I've been around since 2012, and I've never seen users from one DFS website sweep a weekend of major GPPs. I can't verify that no one else has done this, soooo I think we got it! A Race4thePrize.com user won the Truck Series GPP on Friday, then another user took down the Xfinity GPP on Saturday night, and to complete the sweep a long time spreadsheet user won the Daytona Road Course Cup race yesterday. All credit to those players, the sheet is just one part, but IT'S A FREE PART. A free website just accomplished something no paywall website has ever done. Also, let's give credit to Brandon Cruz and his free live YouTube show as well. Enough. Victory lap over.
I've added a little more to Homestead lap-by-lap data in the homestead sheet. Now, you can see who was the fastest on each specific lap to get a feel for the runs of the top tier drivers (or drivers that blew a tire and came back on track with fresh tires during a long run - see Jones and Kenseth). This data is also included in the 2021 lap-by-lap data. For example, you can see which lap Truex recorded his fast laps. Did he have superior long run speed at the Daytona Road Course? Look it up in the 2021 DFS NASCAR Spreadsheets.

Weekend Notes (basically, a live evolving DFS article)
NC ice storm #2 - sheet updates might be intermittent
DFS Race Notes
- TBA - tentatively, we will do a show Friday, Saturday, & Sunday.
Before Cruz and I go live for the DFS NASCAR Truck show, I will go live on my channel and help out with DFS NASCAR questions. With new people discovering the website, it makes sense to explain the spreadsheet and some of the data points that I look into. This will not be a Daytona Road Course show, Cruz and I will cover that on his channel, this is just a DFS NASCAR in general show.
Anyone can join with any level of expertise. Hang out and ask questions if you want. It will be sometime Friday afternoon. I'll have a specific time later this week.
Also, I posted some nuggets in the Patreon. I didn’t plan on doing much over there, but people signed up, so I’ve got to put some stuff on Patreon. You don’t have to sign up, you’ll be just fine with the free stuff, but if you want to be a super fan/diaper boss, then I’ll see you over there.

Just give us the picks. Ok. Hear are the Fantasy NASCAR Picks for free.
Free DFS NACAR PICKS Xfinity Series
The web traffic has been it's highest in two year. Imagine that, make it all free, and people come out of the woodwork. I might as well put something up this morning, since you're visiting. There's no pay wall, I can post what I want, when I want. Back when I was selling, I had to keep this stuff behind the paywall in the notes section of the DFS NASCAR Spreadsheet. Otherwise the paying customers would be getting cheated. Now, you can all see my bad ideas.
A.J. at 8/1 - Nope. His setup was way off last year at the Daytona Road Course in the Xfinity race. What makes you believe that this small team is going to guess correctly in Cup while also having to guess correctly in the Xfinity series? He won at the Roval, but Kaulig has much more experience at that track. Maybe, their Xfinity notebook is stronger this season, but betting him in Cup at these odds is a mistake. They should be longer.
