NASCAR DFS — Xfinity Series Elite at Atlanta

DFS NASCAR Picks: RCR and Kaulig Racing.

In four super-speedway races at the Atlanta Psuedo-Speedway (credit to @rotodoc), the RCR and Kaulig Chevys have been dominant. This shouldn't be a surprise. Over the last several years, both teams have excelled at super speedways. These teams have a technical alliance and share the same campus. Kaulig is notorious for trimming out their cars. They win poles at intermediate tracks and often struggle in dirty air. The pure speed in these cars has led to a significant advantage at Daytona, Talladega, and Atlanta.

DFS NASCAR - Truck Series Top-5 Drivers in Daytona Practice (lap-by-lap data)

Super Speedway lap-by-lap data is not very significant, but it might let us know who are the slugs in bad trucks. Careful, slugs can survive and earn a top-10 Fantasy NASCAR score on DraftKings.

DFS NASCAR Stats - Super Speedway Closers

DFS NASCAR players know the super-speedway stats. Everyone has a general idea of which drivers are better — luckier — than others.

But do you know the closers? Who runs the best win it matters? Which drivers push it during the final laps? They turn a top-20 finish in a top-10 or better.

The Fantasy NASCAR Spreadsheet has this data.

The drivers that gained the most positions during the last 10 green-flag laps of each super speedway race in 2023 were Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick.

North Wilkesboro All-Star Race DFS NASCAR Data ...thinking aloud

Is the 2023 North Wilkesboro race a worthwhile data point for the L.A. Clash? By Saturday evening, there will be plenty of weekend data, and the correlating track data will be pushed aside — right or wrongly. I would not get married to LA practice/qualifying data, or swear allegiance to game theory (leverage, ownership, sims, small windows to build lineups).

Look at the data. Pick the data points that you like. Build your own lineups. Do your own thing. But what do I know? I'm just a small town pizza lawyer. I'm not a NASCAR tout. It's just me. A guy building useful spreadsheets. My twitter feed isn't screenshots. There's no website affiliation for me to promote. Just a man and a spreadsheet.

LA Clash Notes 2023

RacingNews.Co
is great resource for researching the play-by-play of past races for DFS NASCAR analysis.

Also, the Race4thePrize.com Fantasy NASCAR Spreadsheet contains racing notes from NASCAR's media feed:

0 Practice: #48 scraped the wall in practice 1, session 1, #22 had a clutch issue in session 1, #54 has a fire in his car in his second time going out in practice due to the exhaust coming off, #16 sends #14 in practice after the two made contact a few times, #22 spins in his final session of practice
1 #10 leads the field to the green from the inside with #19 on the outside, the track temperature is down 25 degrees from when #10 won Heat 1, #10 leads lap but 1 but #19 challenges on the outside before falling to 2nd
8 #11 passes #19 for 2nd
14 #10 catches #38 as the last car on the lead lap

I'm Back - Fantasy NASCAR Spreadsheets return in 2024


Fantasy NASCAR needs data. It's fun to play DFS NASCAR with spreadsheets that contain historical results and practice laps.

I considered releasing all of the tools for free and letting people do it themselves. I've considered this before. I never do it because you won't do it. You don't want to spend five hours scraping each week. You don't want to spend another five hours updating DFS NASCAR spreadsheets.

I like you people, so I'll do it for you. I don't like you too much, so I'll charge.

You can pay for a weekend or pay for the month. Just like the old days.

More info to come.

TLDR: The 2019 model is coming back. Come get your racing sheets.

Yes... the podcast will be back, too.
