What kind of turfgrass?

You shouldnt have a crab grass problem right now anyway. Once the first frost hits, all the crab grass dies. Thats probably why you thought the spraying you did in the fall did "good in some spots".

I would do the normal Pre-ems during the course of this season and then slit-seed in late September.

What did you spray the yard with in the fall? Do not use preemergent in spring if you seeded in the fall. Slice seed the yard in 2 opposite directions and then fertilize heavy with a good started fert. Follow up with an aggressive aeration in fall. Worry about crabgrass then with Drive 75DF or use barricade the following spring.
