Welcome the NASCAR DFS Pit Stop: Introduction to NASCAR DFS. I will be doing a weekly NASCAR article to help you pick your race teams for the upcoming 2019 NASCAR season. Each week I will give you my favorite Leaders of the Pack drivers, which will typically be the high-priced drivers that will most weeks be up at the top of the leader board and give you the higher point totals. I will then also give you the Back of the Pack drivers who will be the lower priced guys at the back of the starting grid but who a chance to pick up some big points based on where they are starting, or how they have fared in their career at that track each week.
My purpose in writing this article is to hopefully bring some new DFS players to track each week and pick up a new, fun, sport to help ease the loss of NFL on Sundays, as well as help give the current NASCAR DFS players a refresher or new way to look at the sport. My articles will be geared towards DraftKings since that is the only site I used for NASCAR, but most of it should translate over to FanDuel as well.
In this piece I will give you roster construction, scoring breakdown on DraftKings, strategy for building lineups, and then just some old faces in new places.
