This is for the SUNDAY Cup race at Dover.

On Saturday we saw mostly what we expected to see as the top drivers going right now where the ones that run up front and there were minimal cautions. What this means for Sunday’s race is that the top drivers from Saturday are starting in the middle of the pack as it’s a top-20 invert and then the starting spots 21-40 for Sunday were calculated from drivers finishing 21-40 on Saturday and using the formula that NASCAR announced last week. This shakes things up a bit as Kurt Busch isn’t starting P40 like he would be if the formula wasn’t being used.

What this means for DFS is that PD will be a huge part of scores on Sunday and the laps led will likely be a bit more split up as the fastest cars from Saturday won’t be up front to start and therefore will take some time to be able to lead laps. As dominant as Hamlin was on Saturday, the laps led were still reasonably split between the top three or so drivers in that category. The main difference between the two races will be that there isn’t a competition caution scheduled for Sunday’s race given that they’ve already run on the surface and should know what to expect from the tires and setup. That fact though also means that the drivers that start up front may lead more laps than expected since the competition caution won’t cut things short after 25-30 laps.

There is a chance that the sense of urgency will be quite large for guys who are on the playoff bubble as this is the last predictable race left (of the two) before the playoffs start in two weeks and so we may see more cautions for incidents on Sunday than we did on Saturday.
