Already a little leery of making any plays for today considering its a plate track, its back to pack racing, water temp concerns and now on top of it all there are weather issues.

However, after arguing with myself decided to make a few plays. Just not as many.

All lines from dimes or sportsbook



MATCH-UPS

1.00 unit Dale Jr. (-115) over Kasey Kahne
1.00 unit Trevor Bayne (-145) over Danica Patrick

Thinking here is..... plate racing is back to Jr's comfort zone and I'm feeling he is one the favorites, not really keen on Kane today

Bayne should be in the front pack as long as he stays clean while Danica is here to learn and survive

PROPS

1.00 unit Dale Jr. (-130) under 12.5
1.00 unit Trevor Bayne (-135) under 25.5

Think both of these are gold as long as they stay out of trouble (HUGE if's)

OUTRIGHTS

0.50 unit Dale Jr. (+950)
0.30 unit Jeff Gordon (+1400)
0.15 unit Allmendinger (+4000)
0.10 unit Marcose Ambrose (+6000)
0.05 unit Elliott Sadler (+6800)
0.05 unit Ricky Stenhouse (+8000)

Good luck!

I joined a pool where you can only pick a driver once.  I know nothing about Nascar.  Any advice?

raiders....thats good advice from shooter, or if its a one and done deal you might want to look at someone like elliott sadler or ricky stenhouse who have a shot at doing well today, they are in good equipment but not sure if they will have too many opportunities this year because of having limited schedules

This combined with my -$600+ start is really depressing.

No need to worry, you will bounce back or you could just fade TexG and turn a nice profit.
