Alright a little different this weekend as we will be @ Charlotte motor speedway for allstar weekend activities.

The Monster Cup open for qualifying the all star race for non-automatic teams, will be held a few hours before the big $1 million dollar main event.

helpful notes:
1. For the Showdown race, the winner of the 3 stages will Advance to the main event, +the fan vote winner. For a total of 4 drivers that Will transfer.

2. Qualifying for the main event is again a 3-lap run including a full 4-tire pit stop with no min pit road speed.

3. only 10 cars will make it  for the final 10-lap segment of the all-star race. The winners from the first 3 stages and the avg finish of the remaining cars from those stages make up the rest of the field, as long as they remain on the lead lap after stage 3 concludes. Then they are given a chance to pit, And  if a team choose the ultra soft tires for the final 10-laps, they start behind teams that choose not to pit or use the regular tires.

Odds have been all Over the place for this event in past, so no idea what my strategy will be or how I will approach this wagering wise yet


GOODLUCK!!!!

Wish they would post odds for Blaney and Elliot early. Without a wreck, there's no way in hell they don't punch a ticket to the main event. Of course so will Danica via the fan vote

I guess e.jones and bowyer can also be there too fighting to advance

She must have more than we think, as I'm pretty sure she has won almost every year

Few thoughts before sessions start today:

Might Look for a few longshots too. Leaning Hamlin and kahne but not sure I'll have either. Denny Just because his pit crew is so damn good and track position will be very important I may think about Hamlin. Would like a better # on him but not sure what his odds will do

Also heard Harvick say he thinks that harder tires Will actually win the final stage because track position will be more important thank softer tires.

Might parlay to close from the truck race if it gets that far, even though last year only a few guys were parlayable and of course none of the manufacturer, team, combos,  or car type will be offered.

But I would HIGHLY consider saving it for the coke 600 next week

Also can't see how there will be odds posted for the Showdown race with 3 stage winners advancing as long as they are on the lead lap at race's conclusion

Did you see that if Harvick wins all star race, 1 fan also wins $1Mil?
