We are in store for an insane Sunday, with a Dirt Double Header in Bristol Fam, and Food City will probably be selling dirt in their stores after this weekend to remember this exciting time. I really dont know if that happens, but what I do know is that I feel like I have electricity coming out of my fucking head and in tune with Mother Dirt. I’ve been saying for weeks now that we were gonna bag this thing, and now it’s time to nut up or shut up, and you guys know me well enough to know that getting me to shut up is a tough task.
After a day spent with my wife, son, and a new dog, I feel refreshed and confident that these four guys paired with my free picks will allow us to do some major damage on DraftKings and FanDuel. As always hop in the discord tomorrow to chat in our premium channels if you’re a monthly or annual sub and I’ll probably even be in the voice chat tomorrow while I’m on my way to Dale’s after my XM call.
NASCAR DFS Gut Bois – Food City Dirt Race At Bristol
#14 Chase Briscoe (DK- $9.9K | FD – $9.5K)
Big Chase Energy is in full swing for Sunday in three parts (Me, Briscoe, and Elliott) and I have to start out with the Dirt Chase. Briscoe has a good dirt background and as a driver that looked up to Tony Stewart his whole life, I feel like he’s only a win away from unleashing a hidden beast of a personality that we may or may not be ready for.
Briscoe starts P25 and looked like his car came alive in the second practice on Friday with a lap average of 20.822 seconds. Briscoe may keep the car in the lower lanes which will keep his speed a bit more consistent, but if push comes to shove he knows how to rip the top if the traffic gets too heavy.
#9 Chase Elliott (DK – $8.7K | FD – $13K)
Elliott starts P26 right behind Briscoe, and if you want to play the narrative with me, it makes my Big Chase Energy theory stronger. Bills boy looked good in practice posting two Top 10 finishes and an average lap time of 20.174.
This is one of the more epic chalk plays alongside Reddick, Kurt Busch, and Briscoe, but I have a feeling that Reddick will be the big chalk, and also my favorite candidate to crash the whip this Sunday (love the guy but I’ve got a hunch). I’ll be playing all those guys mentioned but Elliott and Briscoe get the majority of my lines (promise it’s just a coincidence they are both named Chase…or is it?)
#22 Joey Logano (DK – $8.3K | FD – $11K)
Joey Logano was one of those surprises in practice to me, and even though people are saying practice doesn’t matter on dirt I personally don’t give a shit. I know what speed looks like and with a driver as good as Logano, I expect him to run a solid race for a Top 5 finish.
Logano and company seemed to make some good adjustments that allowed him to finish the second practice in P4, and once that track dries up quicker than a street corner girl’s lips, Logano does some of his best running it seems. We may see him struggle a bit in the beginning, but hold on for hope because a bounce back should be set to follow.
#4 Kevin Harvick (DK – $8.1K | FD – $7.5K)
Here we are, the Harvick endorsement. I mentioned last week in the Discord how fitting it would be if Harvick bounced back and won the Dirt race with literally no dirt background.
While his lap times aren’t the greatest, and his experience level is that of a fish on land, I love that he’s starting in P6. Tony is not gonna let SHR shit the bed at a dirt race, and sometimes we forget that no matter what, these are the best drivers in the country, so don’t be scared to play the season vet on something other than asphalt this Sunday (Yes I bet on him to win, and yes that fucker will be playing chess in the racecar waiting for fuck-ups).
Additional Dirty Notes For The Dirt Race:
- Chef Boi ranked Larson #1 despite the engine swap and dropping to the rear scored from P1. I am not playing him in more than 3-4 lineups out of my 20 stacks. Chef Boi got balls but I understand the strategy behind it, and there is a world where we could see Larson get upfront by Stage 2. I’m just choosing to go a different direction with the chalk we have to work with
- The majority of my drivers will be starting inside the Top 15
- I will play 5 lineups the same as the Superspeedway strategy. Those group of lineups will contain some Larson.
- Dont overthink shit after reading everything here. We’re all in for a wild ride and it’s important to trust the process. Set your lineups and don’t open that app until the race is over. Trust the process and your instincts.
Now….. Lets get down and dirty at Bristol Guys!
