DFS Notes - Homestead 2 - xfinity - 2020

fantasy NASCAR notes - homestead 2 - xfinity - 2020

Stage 1

  • Field set via 1-15 invert

  • 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

  • Allgaier completely changes setups, takes Gragson’s setup

  • Jones passes Briscoe (crew chief - Jeff Mendering, crew chief when Custer was great at homestead)

    • Also, Jones was awesome at fontana early in the season, they ran up against the wall. He dominated stage 1 and 2, but a penalty put him in traffic and he wrecked

    • Comp caution

  • Briscoe spins tires - drops to 10th on this run

    • Sieg and weatherman take tires early again (Hill, too)

  • Bacarella and TJM wreck

  • Michael Annett gets tires for 5 laps until the end of the stage. He drives from 28th to 2nd. Wow

  • Gragson and Allgaier not racing like teammates (bad blood from Bristol?)

Stage 2

  • Ross Chastain stays out, risky, but he only drops to 12th during the run (full green stage), that being said, 12th is the worst of the top tier cars

    • He took 4 tires on the caution with annett, but he chose to save his tires and finish the stage in the 30s ….saving tires did not work

  • Jones to the lead, then cindric to the lead

  • Hemric holding up gragson

  • Now hemric has dropped to 6th

  • Sieg is running stage 2 on scuffed tires, might not stay on lead lap - he won’t stay on the lead lap

  • Gragson back to the lead on the long run

  • AJ Allmendinger won’t run the wall

Stage 3

  • Gragson I have to run on the wall, the car is set up for the added downforce from the wall, If I’m not on the wall, I’m too loose, and I’ll wreck

  • Brandon Brown engine expires

  • Cindric tries to run wall, got into the wall pretty hard, within pit window

  • Allgaier gets into the wall, not terrible

  • Hemric misses pit road, will have to do another lap

  • Pit cycling happens

  • Allgaier into the wall again, tires gone, will need to pit again…. This weekend was awful, just as bad as the 2019 championship race

  • Gragson with a 3 second lead on Briscoe, and 11 seconds on third place Cindric

  • Gragson stretching lead back out, people were in his line.not briscoe dealing with same traffic

  • Gragson having more trouble with traffic, briscoe catching

  • Gragson feels fine on the radio, not worried

  • Burton pits, flat tire

  • Briscoe pushing, not going to catch him, and if he does, he cant pass, so really has to push, hits the wall a couple times….now briscoe falls….lead 1.5 secs

  • Cindric caution (5 cars on lead lap)... blows a tire like everyone else, but doesn’t have the skill to save it (allgaier made it back to pit road, burton did too, not cindric)

  • Gragson done again, does not have short run speed. Briscoe drives away on restart

  • AJ sends herbst into hemric and annett (aj racing for $100,000), not AJs fault, herbst tried to block and AJ went through him

  • Briscoe wins restart again, Jones almost passes briscoe at the finish line
