WOW……That’s all I can say after the race we watched last night!! First off it was the longest race of the year for the drivers and after only being back in actual race-cars for a few weeks due to the Coronavirus shut-down, these guys handled it awesome!
After six hours on Sunday that included a rain delay and overtime, Brad Keselowski won the Coca-Cola 600 for the first time in his career. It was the longest race, by miles, in NASCAR history!!
For those of you that played DFS NASCAR last night, we sure hope you read our article and played the CORE 4 we provided you because if you did and also was able to get Keselowski in there, you were sitting very close to #1.
Tonight we are back in action again!!! So let’s go break this down and get in the green one more time.
The Alsco 300 is an annual 300-mile NASCAR Xfinity Series race held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend as a support race for the Coca-Cola 600. The rescheduled race will run 200 laps and while there is still rain in the area, everything looks like the race will be a go!
Now, let’s go over the DraftKings lineup requirements and also a breakdown of how scoring works, then we will move on to out Top Picks for this race.
To start with, one thing you will notice about our website is we give examples and facts based on DraftKings rules and scoring, this is because we strictly play nothing but DK. Fanduel and other websites are very similar in lineup construction and scoring and our picks and info can work on all platforms.
To start your lineups, you will select 6 drivers while staying under the $50,000 amount given to build.
For scoring we can take a look at the data below:
|Place Differential||+/- 1 Pt|
|Fastest Laps||+0.5 Pts|
|Laps Led||+0.25 Pts|
|Finishing Position Scoring|
- Place Differential = (Starting Position) – (Finishing Position) Example: If a driver starts in 20th position and finishes in 10th place then his Place Differential is +10.
- A driver’s starting position is based on his qualifying position. If a driver’s qualifying position is disallowed, his starting position will be his new spot at the back of the race. If a driver’s starting position changes between qualifying and the start of the race for any other reason (e.g. going to a backup car) the original qualifying position will be used to calculate place differential.
- Points for Finishing Position and Place Differential will be updated in real-time during the race. Drivers will gain points as they move up in position and lose points as they drop in position.
- Finishing Position is defined as the driver’s standing order at the end of the race. Disqualifications related to same-day post-race inspection will not change a driver’s Finishing Position, Laps Led, or Fastest Laps stats.
As you can see, drivers drop 1 point for every spot back from 1st they finish the race. The 3 top things we want to keep in mind when building is, Who will lead the most laps, Who will win and Who will gain the most points by place differential. Your job as a DFS Player is to find the right balance of drivers and our picks below will give you an edge and core to build with.
Annnnddddd NOW! The moment you have been waiting for….
