- TBA - tentatively, we will do a show Friday, Saturday, & Sunday.
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.
Hemric goes to back for driver change
Allgaier starting in back (back up car)
AJ starting in the back
Ton of room to pass slow cars, ton of room for good cars to
pass good cars
Briscoe easily passes chastain for the lead
Cindric easily passes Briscoe
Homestead 1- xfinity 2020
Gragson wants to run the wall
Chastain says that he does not
Burton on pole chooses outside
Lead on track … from Chase Briscoe… still haven’t started
Briscoe back on the track 6 laps down… BUT … he’s on fresher tires and will steal all of the fast laps
Gragson said he would get near the wall on lap 15
Fantasy nascar notes
Day race…. Delayed by rain…..no longer a hot day race…. The Setup that works will be different
Hot day… but rain clouds keeping it cool
Hamlin setup - looked at final run from happy hour practice in 2019, and the 1st two runs of the fall race of 2019
Big rain clouds… temperature dropping
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.
Fantasy NASCAR Notes
Elliott team notices something during inspection, decide to make a change, because of the adjustment they have to start in the back
First run (caution on lap 8)
Kyle Busch 16th to 7th
Truex 18th to 8th
Logan and Kurt Busch biggest droppers
Tyler Reddick wild man deep and wide into turn 1, no one could pull that off this season...product of low downforce? Last year with high downforce, maybe everybody could max it out, possibly this time with less downforce the leaders took it a lot easier not knowing where the edge of grip might be and Reddick pushed it to the edge???
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.
