FTSA Award

We launched Pre-Lock Live on Halloween 2016. I've been on 98% of the MLB, NBA, and NFL DraftKings shows. I don't care what people say about fantasy sports associations. We have worked very hard to create a show that isn't just two dudes skyping.

Movie Review Tweets 2017

Both are good. Tired of how Alien movies end. Logan Lucky could have been great, but it's just good.

50th Snowball Derby ...if you're going through stock car withdraw

It's $35 or only $35. However you look at it. Sunday December 3rd at 2pm EST. I doubt there will be a free stream. Kyle Busch is racing.

Top Fantasy NASCAR Podcast ...NASCAR Podcast!

Forget about top ranked "Fantasy NASCAR Podcast." The FanVice.com Fantasy NASCAR podcast is close to being a top ranked "NASCAR Podcast." It's amazing, FanVice and this podcast have been around for just over a year. Several DFS NASCAR content providers had a huge head start on us, and we've passed them in popularity.

fantasy NASCAR podcastThis is a very proud moment for me. As you know, it's just me. I do it alone. I do not have employees, assistants, interns, or the benefit of a major SEO ranked website. I dedicate a ridiculous amount of time to researching, writing, and creating worthwhile NASCAR content. I am also brutally honest. This has hurt me in the "industry," but I believe that serving the people rather than the touts is the purpose of creating content. I have been proven right.

All of that being said, this would not be possible without YOU, thanks for listening. It would not be possible without FanVice. This underdog DFS site continues to defy the odds.

Daily Fantasy NASCAR DraftKings Projections

Projecting Fantasy NASCAR results is a fools errand, or at least I thought. Obviously, no one can predict wrecks or mechanical failures, so this system will never be perfect. However, it seems possible to get very close. My method at FanVice.com can be replicated by a program, and with less bias.

fantasy nascar projectionsThe daily fantasy NASCAR projections system is still in its the nascent stages. I do not know what the end result will be. I do not know if I will make it public. I do not know if I will sell it, or if I will sell it to individuals or a website. The only certainty at the moment is that the process is off to a great start, and my initial assumptions have been very accurate. I've attached a small screen shot of an early run.

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
