Trying to pick your optimal DraftKings lineup for the NASCAR race on Sunday, May 7, at 2 pm ET on FOX: the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway? Our fantasy NASCAR experts are ready to help.
Joey Logano ($10,700)
He's hot right now, taking the checkered flag last week in Richmond and earning his fifth top-five finish in the last five races. Plus, he's been successful at Talladega: he's taken the checkered flag in the last two fall races. Of course, he claims only two top-10 finishes at the 2.66-mile behemoth in the spring. Still, we like his chances.
Kyle Larson ($9,000)
A 14th place finish last week dropped his salary down to $9K. Considering Larson hasn't had lackluster back-to-back weeks all season, we like our chances.
Kurt Busch ($8,000)
At a track where it's almost impossible to cheat Lady Luck, Busch has skated by with five straight top-12 finishes over the past five plate races here.
Jamie McMurray ($7,600)
It's been awhile since he won here (back in 2013), but he has two wins, seven top fives, and eight top 10s here.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ($7,200)
During his seven starts at 'Dega, Stenhouse has an average finish of 11.7.
Aric Almirola ($7,000)
Last year was downright miserable for Almirola, but 'Dega proved to be a bright spot with an eighth-place finish last fall. And he's cheap.
