Bristol Plate Race on Dirt

It looks like this week is a plate race, so why kill yourself researching when at least half of the winning lineup will be fluky survival picks?

I could be wrong, this could be a demonstration of excellence. There are a lot of unknowns, but what we do know seems to point in the direction of madness.

Drivers with little dirt experience, cars designed for aero dynamic parity on 1.5 mile concrete cookie cutter ovals not dirt, and a flawed dirt track are enough reasons to expect real life fun and DFS doom.

I'm not going to labor over podcasts, and read articles and stats from dirt races with actual cars designed for dirt with actual dirt competitors. I'd rather spend my time studying 2021 data and preparing for Martinsville. I will still put some work into the spreadsheet, about the same time I put into a plate race spreadsheet.

MLB DFS Free Spreadsheet

I wasn't really excited about doing Dirt research today, so I threw together a fantasy baseball spreadsheet. It's in beta mode, and I won't get to complicated with it because I am 95% focused on NASCAR, but the goal is to build a sheet that allows DFS players to identify good pitcher plays. Maybe, I will work in hitters as well. I'm not sure if I want to update the fangraphs scrape data (change the date) everyday, but if it's popular, I might try to figure something out.
