Race Info

The series finale will take place this week from Homestead Miami Speedway. Homestead is a 1.5 mile track where drivers can utilize every lane from the the bottom all the way to the top of the track. The track surface is incredibly abrasive and wears tires out quick. This makes long run speed ultra important. Tire fall off will be 3 to 4 seconds per lap by the end of the green flag run. Due to this 10-15-20 lap practice averages are the best tool we can utilize this week for lineup building. Being that this is the championship race all attention will be on the four title contenders of Custer, Bell, Reddick and Allgaier.

The DFS Army destroyed DFS in October with double digits 1st place wins $5,000+. This is simply down to the unbelievable content provided by our top flight coaches and research tools. Come join the winning culture with access to elite content for EVERY DFS sport.

Lineup Building

Dominator/Top Tier

The best four teams are the four racing for the title this week. They have been the four fastest teams all year long. Something that would surprise people would be that Allgaier has had the 2nd fastest car the 2nd half of 2019 behind only C. Bell. The speed has been there and last week he finally got the win. These four are the main dom threats and the favorites to win the race. I like taking two of these drivers in each lineup and making it a two dominator race. Tyler Reddick smashed the field in this race last year en route to winning the 2018 championship. He has to be the early favorite as a result. Cole Custer won this race in 2017 so he can definitely get it done. As always Bell is a top contender and shouldn’t be ignored either. Outside of those four Chase Briscoe would be the only driver I see keeping up but I don’t expect him to get in the way of the leaders too much.

Mid to Low Tier

This group will be all about the combination of finishing position upside as well as Place differential. Overall the Xfinity field is rather weak so drivers like Jeb Burton in the #8, John Hunter Nemechek and Harrison Burton in the #18 will offer some of the best value with top 10 cars and even top 5 upside. Playing the drivers with the best teams is the right mindset for this week.

As always with this group we will look for the drivers who can take advantage of place differential. Drivers starting deep in the field who can find their way into the top 25 or even top 20 are what we are looking for. There are a couple options that should finish inside the top 20 this week but their value will be determined based off where they qualify.


I will also answer any questions you may have in the VIP Slack!
