Get ready for our NASCAR daily fantasy racing event in The DFR Circuit, $5.50 buy-in at Fantazzle!
Last week’s Kobalt Tools 400 ended with Matt Kenseth as the victor. Kenseth was celebrating his birthday and was able to celebrate with cake in the Winner’s Circle.
Last Week’s Top Daily Fantasy Racing Picks:
Tony Stewart put together a decent run, finishing 11th.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. looked like he may run away with a victory again but instead finished 7th. This was his 3rd top-10 finish on the year.
Jimmie Johnson continued his hot streak and finished in the top 10 again, placing 6th.
Brad Keselowski finally looked like last year’s cup winner in posting a 3rd place finish.
Carl Edwards continue to build off of his Subway win and finished 4th at Las Vegas.
This week we get the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN. Bristol Motor Speedway was built in 1960 and ran its first NASCAR race in 1961. It is the prime example of a true short track and one of my favorite tracks on the NASCAR Sprint Cup. At only half a mile, the track is famous for rubbing and racing, the aspect of NASCAR that has made it famous. Daily fantasy racing fans should expect limited passing and multiple wrecks this week- both aspects need to be taken into consideration while making picks.
Check out my 5 Daily Fantasy Racing picks below that will put up points for your daily fantasy racing team and potentially get us a fantasy win.
We had 4 out of 5 drivers in the top 10 last week, and the 5th one in the top 15. Make sure you check out all of the plays and make informed decisions when it comes to filling our your NASCAR lineups.

This Week’s Top Daily Fantasy Racing Picks:
Kyle Busch won the pole this week and broke the track record in posting a 14.83 lap. Busch showed last week that he has gaining some traction with these Gen-6 cars and that his confidence is returning. He has also posted four wins at Bristol over his career. His past success and his blazing speed this week has earned him the title of DFR Top Pick.
Jeff Gordon qualified in 11th and has seen a lot of success at Bristol. (And if you haven’t yet done so, check out Gordon’s new Pepsi Maxx commercial.) With his experience and qualifying spot he should be a top-15 lock.
Jimmie Johnson has made the top 10 at Bristol the past five years running. He has also reached the Winner’s Circle once in the past ten years. He is by far the hottest driver on the NASCAR Circuit and has to be included in all lines.
Brad Keselowski qualified in 7th and has looked like his old self this year. I was initially worried about Keselowski and Kyle Busch adjusting to the Gen-6 cars, but both have been gaining momentum. Keselowski doesn’t want to be a one-and-done Cup winner; because of this, I think his drive will push him to the top 10 this week.
Brian Vickers is sort of a wildcard pick, but his qualifying performance solidifies my expectations. He was in the top 5 of both Bristol races last year and has qualified 4th. He will be in all of my lines this year.
