 :< Alright guys, after another big weekend in the short track, we are off to TEXAS motor speedway this weekend for Xfinity and Truck series action. The Trucks are off for another month and won't be back until May

**TEXAS motor speedway underwent a complete repaving after last fall's playoff race. It also underwent a re-configuration in turn 1&2 dropping the banking from 24 to 20 degrees and also widening the groove PIR from 60 t0 80 feet long. So basically it's a brand new racetrack and I threw away my old notebooks from Texas and starting fresh

I'll be mainly going off this seasons intermediate races and the few races from last season with the new low aero package. I don't think much will change wirh he teams that are killing it and teams that still haven't caught up to speed yet.  I don't see the teams that have ran great with it being effected at all, just like teams that haven't done well all the sudden coming to life. Just not gonna over think things on any opening wagers.  Practice will mean more than usual for some, but not my favs to win this race. Though opinions will vary this is just mine

Fell free to post ur thoughts and opinions as always!


GOODLUCK this weekend!!!!

 :cheers

I expect 42/2/24 and 78 to open as the 4 favs. Along with Harvick and logano following close behind

I think +650 to +850 will be the top 4 favs opening Numbers

Hopefully I'm wrong, but I highly doubt it

Idk if they'll open as the favs, but those are the guys i'll be looking at.

The guys in the xfinity race might have a slight edge. Harvick and Logano.

Besides Elliot maybe. Harvick and logano will be there too of course. No way those aren't the top 6

2/42 will open as favs for sure

Odds will be trash this week no matter what

I see the westgate odds are posted. Yeah, hopefully 5d does much better. Might as well just wait for practice with these openers.

Well looks like I was absolutley wrong about the odds

I will be lunching on a few openers.

Did not expect some of those #s according to the greek. Dimes will only be better too

JJ a 6-1 is laughable. But good for us

I like Logano too, but I'm trying not to take more than 3 and still debating the 3rd. Thinking Larson before he gets bet to death too

People are sitting on the openers like never before. I tried to bet more on truex immediately and line had dropped to +750. And that was like 60 seconds max after them posting

U guys remember 5dimes use to post within 1-2 hrs Max after the Greek. Now it's flat out every wed sometime b4 noon even when Greek posts on Tuesdays like yesterday.  I've seen dimes post at 2-3am my time in the past. But now seems like they are on a semi schedule I guess.

And they would drop yes, but nothing like this season...it's really getting insane

Like both (obv chase), but with everything being new, I thought taking a big longshot (jones) would be worth it.

He pretty much has the same car as truex and I think he's actually good. Got a lot of hate in the minors for not winning, but it was just a shit ton of circumstance a lot of times.
