Who benefited from the Kentucky Splitter Rule?

Fantasy NASCAR Splitter
Before the Kentucky race, the NASCAR garage was a buzz about the new splitter change. No one knew who would benefit from the change. A Reddit post revisited this topic. The assumption is that JGR has benefited.

Let’s look at the data.

First of all, what was the change?
Teams are no longer allowed to modify the area under the splitter.

Before I go into the data. If you just want the answer, then yes. JGR is the clear winner from this rule change, and yes Truex is being included with the JGR cars. Every oval race since Kentucky has been controlled by JGR. With the exception of Keselowski on the pole at Michigan, and Kyle Larson being Kyle Larson, it has been all JGR Toyotas.

Michigan Spring 2017 - #FantasyNASCAR Rewind

fantasy nascar michiganWhat happened in the Michigan spring 2017 race? How can I make better fantasy picks at Draft Kings?

Tire dragon = Didn't do much. Only ran it on the bottom line
  • Several cars to the back ► last minute announcement (4 and 41)
    • 19, 47, 48
  • Ty Dillon Q run thrown out - start/score in back = chalk
  • 88 great speed off the truck
  • Larry mac predicts only 2 tire changes for the cars that aren't elite
  • Fuel window 44-48
  • LAP TURNING ...what can I write (lap 5
  • 42,78,18 ...Busch was 2, but Truex passed him
  • Debris on lap 7…..for a trash bag
    • This race was the tipping point
      • Drivers complained...88 talked about all of the debris on the track in the 80s and 90s
        • Nascar stopped throwing them after this race

Watkins Glen 2016 Notes - YouTube Replay for DFS


Watkins Glen 2016 Notes - YouTube Replay for DFS
  • Watching video at 2x speed (sometimes slow it down)
  • Truex should have had the pole, but Stenhouse pulled out in front of him, so Truex did the same and ruined Stenhouse's Q lap.
  • 28-30 lap window. Possible to make with just 2 stops.
  • Austin Dillon slows the turn before the chute. Jeff Gordon (#88) rear-ends him. Dillon spins off track. Gordon goes on, but damage to the front. Looks cosmetic, but will affect down force at high speed track like The Glen
  • A.J. Allmendinger working his way through the top 10, same for Kyle Busch
  • Edwards and Kenseth cruising 1 and 2

Kyle Busch #1 - 1 mph faster than anyone else

Stenhouse =8th

BK q run = 9th

McDowell to 7th  ...here come the q runs with 4 minutes left

...and there it is ....larson to the top of the chart
