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

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.
