The Paperclip is the final shot to make the Championship Four in Phoenix next weekend and it couldn’t come at a better track to ramp up tensions. Short track racing in a pressure cooker situation is just what’s needed this time of the year and that’s what we should be getting on Sunday. The last few races at Martinsville have seen bump and runs for the win and post-race scuffles and on-track shenanigans resulting in hometown drivers getting booed.

This is a short track that is unlike any other in that it’s the shortest on the NASCAR schedule and also one of the flattest with the inner part of the corners at practically no banking and the tilt going up to 12 degrees by the outer wall. The tight racing confines make it hard to pass here and so we’re leaning on finish position and laps led this week to build the lineups. If you look at the Track Breakdown and listen to the Podcast you can get a better idea of the strategy behind the builds and the full stats and figures for all drivers in the field this week. There are also DFS Rankings to peruse and projections as well which will be updated throughout the weekend when pertinent news breaks.

Average DFS Points Scored By Position

These charts are meant to show strategy more so than hard and fast drivers to play based on starting spots. They are an average of points scored solely based on starting spot regardless of driver in those spots in the last four races.
