The NASCAR year is a long one, and in order to achieve consistent success over the 36-race season, you need to be able to rely on being able to get the relevant data for making picks. Now obviously there’s a ton of information out there to use when it comes to Fantasy NASCAR, and it’s all pretty obtainable if you really dig. It’s always nice to have sources that gather the data for you, though, so that you can grab everything you need relatively quickly.
Here is a list of some of my personal favorite NASCAR Fantasy websites that I use on a weekly basis, along with a list of great Twitter accounts to follow as well. If you have any websites or Twitter accounts that you like that didn’t make this list, feel free to leave them in the comments–unless, of course, you want to keep them your little secret 😉
The Best NASCAR Fantasy Websites to Follow
Fantasy Racing Online – www.fantasyracingonline.com – Yep, shameless plug here. But hey, in addition to our 3 Fantasy NASCAR contests (click here to see those, there should be well over $25,000 in prizes this year) did you know that I also post several articles on race weekends, from Slingshot Fantasy Auto Contest picks, to DraftKings projections, to algorithm predicted finishes for the entire field? I also might add in a couple more this year, so keep an eye on it! Also, you can find starting lineup and practice speeds here at Fantasy Racing Online.
ifantasyrace – www.ifantasyrace.com – There’s no shortage of Fantasy NASCAR content over at ifantasyrace, as site owner Ryan Rantz is probably one of the hardest working guys in this space. You can find early week fantasy content there, as well as weekend content–I personally contribute two articles over there, including Post Practice Predictions–for almost every NASCAR fantasy league out there. Add in all the tools and statistics available and ifantasyrace is a great resource for fantasy players.
Fantasy Racing Cheat Sheet – www.frcs.pro – This site has been newly rebranded to FRCS.pro and promises to be bigger, better, and more comprehensive than the past site. And let me tell you, if that’s even a little bit true, it’s going to be amazing. I have used Fantasy Racing Cheat Sheet every single week for the last few Fantasy NASCAR seasons. It’s a stat nerd’s dream website.
Jayski – www.jayski.com – If you don’t know about Jayski… well, you must be new to the NASCAR Fantasy world. Jayski is the epicenter of NASCAR information, from breaking news, to race info, to schedules, to paint schemes, and more. It’s basically the ESPN for NASCAR.
FullTimeFantasy – www.fulltimefantasy.com – The site focuses on more sports than just NASCAR, but the Fantasy NASCAR content by Brian Polking is top notch. Each week, he does a great job of breaking down the DFS plays for all three series, and Brian also posts his Fantasy Picks for the week for games such as our Slingshot Fantasy Auto Contest, NASCAR.com Fantasy Live, and the Driver Group Game.
Honorable Mentions = www.driveraverages.com and www.racing-reference.info. Both of these sites are basically databases full of NASCAR data, and they’re both free. Personally, I use Driver Averages more than Racing-Reference, just because I like the functionality and layout better.
The Best Twitter Accounts to Follow for Fantasy NASCAR
@A_S12 – Honestly, Adam Stern is probably the best follow on Twitter when it comes to breaking NASCAR news and awesome information. He doesn’t focus specifically on NASCAR, but there’s a lot of great information there.
@stevietpfl – If you play NASCAR DFS, you know who Stephen Young is. If he’s not winning the GPP that week, it’s usually one of the people that subscribe to his content on RotoGrinders. One of the best follows in the NASCAR Fantasy world for sure.
Beat Writers – These are the guys that are good follows for weekend information and updates, since they’re usually at the track. @bobpockrass, @jeff_gluck, @jim_utter, and @Knighter01 are usually pretty solid in what they do.
