Just realized I still need to use 11 "C" drivers, with only 2 wild card plate races left. This could be tough.

Could be worse, the game's standings leader for the last six races has used only one "C group" driver to date, meaning he'll need to use 14 drivers from that list over the remaining 22 races.

Good thing for him he knows what he's doing . . . . .:confused:

Maybe he knows something we don't. Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Dale Jr might all be unretiring soon

Here's what I'm thinking ...... C drivers pretty much suck or they have cars that suck.
So I figure giving them and their crew chiefs more time to practice can only help improve their performance before I am forced to pick them.
We'll soon see how that works out.
Humph. Likely story. :cool::p

That's one way to work the C list strategy.

I pick the no-hope C list guys early... before their one good car gets banged up... before their one good engine gets worn out...:idunno:

Well, my plan was to get all the C drivers out of the way first , and we see how well that is working for me.

I just jump between B and C for the most part, I only made 1 pick from the A group as of right now. So I don't know what I'm doing tbh besides just picking some of the lower drivers and saving the good ones.

That was my idea but as I picked the A drivers they didn't finish so well soooooooooooooooo.

At least I got a top 5 from McDowell to start the season. It's been a mixed bag ever since. The only pick I regret is Kurt @ Charlotte.

@pjmolo do you think I'm still in contention 75 points back of the leader with an avg. finish of 16.9?

I've used 5 C-listers to date.
