I’ve learned first hand, stay in your lane. People visit race4theprize.com for DFS NASCAR info, not cynical political takes. If I step out of that lane, I lose patrons. Period.

This will be an unpopular opinion at first, but let ruminate. Let the idea breathe. Everyone should be on board.
The Xfinity series should do single file restarts at the Daytona Road Course. Here are the reasons:
Xfinity teams are poor. They can’t afford to tear up race cars on kamikaze restarts.
Xfinity drivers and crews do not have enough experience at the new road courses to attempt double file restarts.
Yes, restart carnage is exciting, but the wrecks denigrate the actual racing.
Less wrecks means quicker races, and cautions at road courses can last a lifetime.
DFS NASCAR becomes less of a lottery, and more about identifying driver skill.
It won’t be a total snooze, drivers can still run 2 to 3 wide into turn 1, but it will be more spread out.
Mike Harmon’s team did nothing wrong last year, but when the 10th place car trails the leader by half a minute, and the 30th place cars fill the front row on a restart with old tires, bad things will happen. A single file restart will allow crafty drivers to go around or find a safe space. With a double file restarts, the result will always be a Shark Sandwich.

Austin Cindric - Jam him in for DFS NASCAR Road Courses?He’s the best road racer in a series with garbage road racers and garbage equipment, but you can’t win them all. The following evidence can be used to defend Cindric as a must play at road courses. It can also be used to justify fading him because bad luck happens.
Road Course Losses
- Mid Ohio ‘18 - There were cautions in stage 3, and Allgaier ended up with fresh tires while Cindric did not. Cindric led 79% of the laps
- Roval ‘18 - Chase Briscoe (non-playoff driver not point racing) pits before the end of stage 1, then restarts behind the leader (stayed out on old tires). Briscoe easily takes the lead, then pits before the end of stage 3 and cruises to a victory at a track with few passing zones.
- Roval ‘19 - A.J. Allmendinger is better. Period.
- Road America ‘18 - Mechanical failure.
- Road America ‘19 - Cindric follows an unconventional tire strategy. If he pits with the leaders, then he likely wins.
- Indy GP ‘20 - NASCAR officials kneecapped him with a bogus penalty on a restart.
