It’s Sunday morning and Bristol Motor Speedway is still getting hit with a downpour. Of course. NASCAR could bring rain to a desert. But anyway, with an off weekend coming up for Easter, there’s no time constraints in getting this Food City Dirt Race in, so we’ll race in the dirt sometime. Below are my optimal lineups for DraftKings and FanDuel for this likely shit show of a race, but please note that my overall confidence in this race is extremely low and it’s likely going to be reflected in my projections. I just don’t do well when I don’t have historical data to reference, but good luck, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you return for Martinsville content because I’m already working on that!

Optimal DraftKings Lineup (according to Jordan’s projections)

  1. Kyle Busch
  2. Denny Hamlin
  3. Chase Elliott
  4. Martin Truex, Jr.
  5. Kurt Busch
  6. William Byron

Confidence Meter: 1/10. With this lineup, there are only two place differential plays, and I think you need at least three of those in your lineup for the Bristol Dirt Race. With DraftKings, you’re looking to have two dominators on your team and then finish your lineup off with finish position/place differential plays. An alternate lineup that I like is Christopher Bell, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Ryan Preece, and then the one I build in the video (below) was Chase Briscoe, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Alex Bowman, and Ryan Newman.

Optimal FanDuel Lineup (according to Jordan’s projections)

  1. Christopher Bell
  2. Chase Elliott
  3. Kyle Busch
  4. Kurt Busch
  5. William Byron

Confidence Meter: 8.5/10.

As someone who has always been obsessed with numbers, Fantasy NASCAR has been the perfect fit with me. I pride myself on the quality of my analysis for each race, and am glad that I have been able to help others along the way. I've been a serious Fantasy NASCAR player for over 10 years now, and I'm just getting started.


  1. Hey Jordan, i hear ya about making pics this week. I got suckerd in on two Cup and Two truck races with my brother. I like your pics for what we have this week which is not much! Have you put any thought in Stenhouse or Mcdowell? Was wondering as i am going with your line up but i want to put these two in in place of Byron an Truex on my other line-up. Was just wondering your thoughts. (i feel better with my trucks line-up than the Cup)Lol, Thanks Jordan

    • I think Stenhouse is an option in FanDuel but pretty risky in DraftKings. I don’t love McDowell this week but anything can happen in this race! lol
