What are Traditional Metrics? They are simply a drivers start and finish position. These two metrics are the basis for a variety of tools that fantasy NASCAR players use for thier picks or projections for a race. The tools in my Traditional Metrics section provide a significant amount of data to consider by taking these two simple numbers and grouping them together by track and segments of time. The advancement in granular metrics, NASCAR's Loop Data, inspired a number of tools in the Loop Data Metrics section. Many of these metrics also are used in the Moving Average Graphs section. Use the Fantasy NASCAR Statistics / Metrics Site Map to locate specific metrics.
