NASCAR Cup Series Handicapping Balance Sheet: Greg DePalma

Weekly picks, totals and futures in the Monster Energy Cup Series for analyst, Greg DePalma.

By Greg DePalma, PSN Executive Producer

 

GREG DEPALMA

 

RACE RECORD: 10 for 23

RACE TOTAL: -235

FUTURES INVESTMENT: –2300

BALANCE: -2535

 

Points Formula

Each analyst receives a weekly allowance of 200 points to spend on races (100 x 36) and futures (100 x 32).

100 futures points will be invested before practice begins each week, while 100 race points will be invested on race day.

The weekly totals take into account both the 100 futures investment and the 100 in race picks.

After race 32 in Kansas, each analyst will no longer be obligated to invest the 100 in futures points if he chooses, although he must continue to invest the 100 in race points through Homestead.
