Why isn’t Austin Cindric undefeated at road courses?

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.
