Today in DFS NASCAR

News

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.

Updates

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.

Daytona Road Course - Free Fantasy NASCAR info

Weekend Notes (basically, a live evolving DFS article)

Live Shows

  • TBA - tentatively, we will do a show Friday, Saturday, & Sunday.



In case I didn't say it enough during the video, the same tools that were $200 last season and the season before that are now free. These are hard times; it's the least that I can do. Thank you for supporting me for all of these years.

Live Show - Free DFS NASCAR Lessons

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.

DFS NASCAR PICKS - Xfinity at the Daytona Road Course

Daytona Road Course Bets


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.
