2017 Season Preview With the end of the NFL season, Sundays now belong to NASCAR for the next few months. Whether you’re an avid race fan or just a daily fantasy player getting into another sport, it’s an exciting sport to watch on a weekly basis. From a fantasy standpoint, NASCAR can be one of the most profitable sports that DFS has to offer even if you know very little about the sport. It is very important to get a feel for the rules and scoring on DraftKings because in most cases we like to target certain categories more than... Read More
This weekend we head back to Daytona International Speedway for the first time since the beginning of the 2016 season. It’s been a fun first half with the new aerodynamic rules package that has significantly decreased downforce on the cars. We’ve seen a lot of ups and downs, including 11 different race winners, stellar rookie seasons, and photo finishes. We even had an 8 week period where 6 races were won by Joe Gibbs drivers and one was won by their affiliate, the Martin Truex Jr. (DK: $9,500) team, who is our first spotlighted driver. Truex has seen consistent success... Read More
When it comes to value for the Go Bowling 400 race at Kansas, our research has led us to believe there are five drivers ranging from $8,200 and below that could separate themselves from the rest. Our top rated driver in this range would have to be the 47 of AJ Allmendinger (DK: $6,900). He’s had some up and down success in his past four trips to Kansas, with two of them resulting in top-15 finishes. With the way his 2016 has started off, it wouldn’t be out of the question for him to repeat these results once more. Starting... Read More
On a superspeedway like this, “luck” comes into play more so than other tracks. Certain drivers could run up front all day and by no fault of their own be included into potentially “The Big One” and have their day ruined very quickly. While we believe that Dale Earnhardt Jr (DK: $10,300) and Jimmie Johnson (DK: $9,800) are the favorites heading into the race, by starting in 3rd and 5th place respectively, most likely the only way either of them would end up paying off their price tags would be that they would have to lead approximately a much higher...

This week we head to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500. The drivers will go 500 laps at this .533 mile asphalt bowl with steep, progressive banking. Speeds will be high for such a short track, and multi-car wrecks are the norm. As with other short tracks, one needs to look at the laps led statistic as a main source of points. This season, those starting in the top five starting positions have led 40.4% of the laps. In the last 10 races at Bristol, those starting in the top five have led about 55% of the total... Read More
