Alas, the end of the season is upon us. It’s been a great year and I just want to say thank you to all those that have read and shared my content all season. A lot of work goes into these cheatsheets and articles every week and I do it simply because it’s something I enjoy, the fact that so many of you consume it and find value in it is humbling and not taken for granted. I hope you all had a successful and profitable season. For those looking to show their appreciation for the seasons worth of work, my tip links are at the bottom of this page, thank you regardless. I do apologize that these articles of late have lacked the in depth analysis that I shoot for, but life has been wild the last couple weeks.
With all that out of the way let’s get into the strategy I’m rolling with today. I doubt we will see the kind of drama and excitement we saw in the Xfinity race last night, but should be fun nonetheless.
Today’s 400 laps race shapes up to be a perfect opportunity to go stars and scrubs. There are so many Dom points up for grabs today that it is going to be crucial to scoop up as many of those fast laps and laps led that we can. For me, from practice data it looks like the 3 best cars are Larson, Elliott and Truex, all three of whom are championship contenders. Playing this trio makes for a stomach turning finish to your line up construction, but we are really counting on big scores out of this trio to carry our line up, and shooting for guys that have a glimmer of upside that can’t hurt us too much with the rest of our build.
Alfredo has been decent this year on the flat tracks and his 20th place finish at Martinsville last week should give us a bit more confidence in going here again this week. As far as the rest of your build there’s a few different routes you can take, even with what seems like not a lot of salary remaining. McDowell is too cheap and should be pretty safe from P28. Lajoie has shown the ability to run around 20th in this package and his 10 lap average would suggest he can do the same today, should be low owned from P24 as well. Preece doesn’t offer a ton of upside, but his P31 starting position provides the type of floor we are seeking with this build. Another option, believe it or not, is goin full punt down to Smithley, though there is zero upside in this play, it does allow you to fall on some higher upside plays like Buescher or Jones with your final spot.
If this construction still leaves you feeling queasy then the other option you could go is getting off one of the big 3 for someone cheaper like Blaney who was fast in practice, or even Logano who is way too cheap at $8900 on a track that he has a long history of success at. If going this route the odd man out for me would be Chase, hard to go against Larson’s domination and the long run speed Truex showed in practice. Which ever route you choose, I wish you all the luck and hope you finish the season out with a bang!
