    My Dega Picks Strategy

    Back when I was new to fantasy racing, I didn't understand what a crap-shoot Dega was, and ran the guys I thought would do well - and usually got 340+ for the first two years I played....then, my Beginner's Luck Card was punched, and no matter what, if I choosed 'em, I loosed 'em...

    I've tried the picks-out-of-the-hat, the dartboard - every tried and true method for Dega - but this time, I am adding an element of strategy to the mix - this is how I will pick my drivers this time:

    The oldest guy in every category gets the start. I am hoping that the experience and patience that comes with age will beat out the slow reflexes. I guess it will take time and research, but Mikey is out, and I feel kinda relieved about that. Hullo, Terry Labonte!

    • I will be using Tarot cards and tea leaves to make my picks. I couldn't do any worse that the previous three plate races this year. Good luck to you all on your picks. May the force be with you!

    • I've never scored over 252 no matter what "strategy" I use...

      So, I just pick whoever needs a bad finish, slot them as my starter, and let the chips fall where they may...

      • I figure that #$%$ will fall off your butt and tumble down hill. So with that in mind I look to see who is wanting to ride the high side of the track. Most often unless there is someone backing up into the traffic after a crash? Most everyone gets through the the high side. Even Robert Duvall know's that one! Best strategy to pick is the conservative minded driver. It's difficult to say who that would be this year though, since the Roush Racing and RCR drivers are a little on the short side so to speak. That being said, chaos will have know boundry with nothing on the line except bragging rights. I bet we see a few more conservative minded drivers wanting to go high on the track but quickly find out that ain't the place to be at all. Patience is going to be in short supply even for a restrictor race. I'd say a guy like Harvick, who if he finds the speed, will be a definite contender.

      • Hee-hee, I Know YOU know that I'm kinda joking, Kid Bro'....but have you noticed, in the plate races, despite how they are the only ones Terry runs - and in the #32 car, which never gets a top 30 unless Kenny Schrader runs it at Martinsville (I think that's the short track that works for him & the #32) or Terry runs it in a plate race - Terry has gotten some some top 20s at the plate races for Frank Stoddard.& the #32?

        I commented on it once, and someone pointed out, the #32 never blows up, and Terry knows to hang back until everyone else wrecks.

        Not a bad strategy, I guess!
