Drivers I have a TON of interest in this week:

Kyle Busch- He’s starting 31st so there’s a ton of room for him to go up and get us a ton of fantasy points this week. He hasn’t won here since 2019 but did have back-to-back wins here before and is in a good spot as he’s priced down to what we are used to him being.

Christopher Bell- Starting out 13th so not the biggest chance for place differential, but if he can lead laps we can get the points we need. He placed 36th here last time out so not the best outcome but he has finished 6th here last year in the first race.

Brad Keselowski- Keselowski is starting out in 18th so we have some room for growth and fantasy points today. He ended up 15th here last time out and has driven here since 2014. He’s finished 2nd a couple of times and if he can miss the big wrecks, we could get him for a premium price.

John Hunter Nemechek- This is more of a punt play since he’s a cheaper option. Nemechek is starting out 19th and has never raced here before. IF he avoids the wrecks, he helps us pay up with other drivers.

Denny Hamlin- Hamlin starts off on the pole position. Normally we don’t like polesitters because we want the PD fantasy points, but this is short track and on these types of tracks the people out front that hold on to the lead the most get the most fantasy points. As long as he avoids any car troubles or wrecks, we could see him lead the entire race.

Kyle Larson- He’s starting in 17th position so he has 16 spots to make up and get fantasy points. He’s coming off a 3rd place finish in the second race here last year and 4th place here in the first race of 2023.

Drivers I have Mild interest in this week:

Ryan Preece

Josh Berry

Austin Cindric

Bubby Wallace



Drivers I have SOME interest in this week:



Justin Haley- Just a punt play today at his price. Nothing more, not a cash option either.

Daniel Suarez

Alex Bowman- Another tourney option as he has just been bad here historically.


You can find even more drivers we like at along with our bacon ratings on our cheat sheet as part of FTA+ memberships. Make sure to check the memberships out for DFS+ Sportsbetting.
