Trevor Marcotte gets you ready for the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain 500 DFS Slate!
Top NASCAR Daily Fantasy Picks for DraftKings, FanDuel

- .526 Mile, Paved Track
Short track, nice racing this weekend. Gotta love it! Headed to Martinsville and this is a 500 lap event.
Last Race Notables: Chase Elliott won
Laps Led: Elliott: 236, Truex Jr: 129, Hamlin: 42, Blaney: 36, Kurt Busch: 23, Logano: 19
Start/Finish: Blaney: 10/2, Almirola: 20/7, Wallace 32/21
Remember, number of laps sway the importance of scoring in different directions. Less laps = less laps led pts, and less fastest lap pts. Making place finish and place differential pts a bit more valuable.
Yes, you will still need the dominator, but there is less likely to have two or three of them and really separate them from the pack. I expect there to be two or three guys to get some significant laps led pts this weekend.
NASCAR DFS PROCESS
Let me give you guys a better idea of what we are doing here for Nascar. We put out an early article with some track stats and what drivers I will have my eyes on based on some numbers.
Things can change once qualifying and practice are over, so then we put out an update with drivers who seem to be fast or have had a good or bad qualifying run.
I put out a total of 12 drivers I like and a few who I am off. The guys I am off are typically guys who don’t run that well here and have qualified in a decent position.
Take a look at the scoring to better understand why I do it this way:
Drivers will accumulate points as follows:
- Place Differential = +/- 1 PTs(Where they start vs where they finish….start 20th ,finish 10th = 10pts)
- Fastest Laps = +0.5 PTs
- Laps Led = +0.25 PTs
- Finishing Position Scoring (winner 46pts, 2nd 42pts, 3rd 41, 4th 40, 39,38,37 etc…)
- .1pts for each lap completed.
- Place Differential = +/- .5 PTs(Where they start vs where they finish….start 20th ,finish 10th = 10pts)
- Fastest Laps = +0.5 PTs
- Laps Led = +0.1 PTs
- Finishing Position Scoring (winner 43pts, 2nd 40pts, 3rd 38, 4th 37, 36,35,34 etc…)
