STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway

Trying to find your optimal DraftKings lineup picks for this week's NASCAR race on April 2 at 2 pm ET: the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway? Our fantasy NASCAR experts are ready to help. 

Here's what our optimal driver lineup looks like.

Kyle Busch ($10,300)

Busch dominated the spring race at Martinsville last year and followed that up with a fifth place showing in the fall. And in the last two weeks, he's finished eighth and third, respectively. In other words, we like how things are shaping up. 

Kyle Larson ($10,000)

Kyle Larson is hotter than Kate Upton right now. In his last four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series races, Larson has finished second or better, winning last week's Auto Club 400. We're going to ride this streak as long as it lasts. Jump on board. 

Jamie McMurray ($8,100)

He's finished 10th or better in three of his last four races and has also seen success at Martinsville's half-mile oval over the years, accumulating two top fives, and 15 top 10s during his career.

Clint Bowyer ($8,000)

We love seeing Bowyer running really well this season (he looked solid at Fontana last week with a third place finish), and has been successful at Martinsville over the years, grabbing four top fives and 12 top 10s. 

Ryan Newman ($7,400)

Newman has finished 15th, first and 17th during the past three weeks. At Martinsville he has one win, eight top fives and 14 top 10s. For the money, he's hard to pass up. 

Michael McDowell ($5,600)

He was 24th in the spring and 18th in the fall, improving drastically at this short track last year. And, while we don't forsee him grabbing a win, remember this: he's cheap.
