My apologies for not being around in the Chat last night. I tried to hit on my potential absence in the NASCAR Podcast as well as the Xfinity Playbook. I didn’t get to watch the race last night and I have only seen highlights from it, but what I can gather it was pretty rough. I should’ve added the same disclaimer to Brandon Jones than I added in the Xfinity Playbook. Looking back at yesterday’s Playbook it looked like the cheaper plays did enough to return value, but it was the higher-end guys that struggled. I played the three example lineups pretty light and they got crushed.

At first glance, I’m not crazy about this slate. I played last night’s race very light and I may take a similar approach today. The value plays are tricky to identify and there’s chalk all over the place especially for Cash games. I’m going to play the ten lineups (including the examples below) and proceed with caution for today’s race. I’ll likely keep a tighter driver pool and go heavier on the Xfinity...
