Trevor Marcotte gets you ready for the NASCAR All-Star Race DFS Slate!
Top NASCAR Daily Fantasy Picks for DraftKings, FanDuel
- Bristol Motor Speedway
- Wednesday 7/15/20 – 8:30 PM
- .53-mile Concrete Track
A race for the fans. Going to do this a little differently this week. Back to normal for the next race (O’Reilly Auto Parts 500). You need to make sure to check your drivers, as the field won’t be finalized until just before the race and some drivers will not make the cut.
What is the All-Star Race? Cash to the winner, simple as that. No points, just cold hard cash! This race is 140 laps broken down into four stages: 55 laps, 35 laps, 35 laps, and the final stage is 15 laps.
In order to be eligible for the All-Star Race, a driver must have one or more of the following:
- Be a 2018/2019 winner
- Past All-Star Race winner
- Past Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion
- Fan Vote winner
- Drivers who did not qualify prior to the All-Star Race still have a shot of making the big show. Three drivers can race their way in via the preceding Monster Energy Open. Each stage winner gets into the main event.
I hope this all makes sense. This is a real crapshoot event. So, with that said, I am going to list some drivers I like here at Bristol, in order of how much I like them. As I write this, 16 drivers are in the race. Three more to be added via the Open race before the main event.
If you need more information, you can look at the projections tab.

Drivers list so far (16). In starting order:
Martin Truex Jr., Alex Bowman, Ryan Blaney, Justin Haley, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Cole Custer, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones. Four more drivers will be added from the All-Star Open. The winner of each stage and fan-voted in drivers.
Here are guys I like in order for each tier. Note, there will be three more drivers added after the open.
Martin Truex Jr.
