NASCAR heads to Richmond this weekend for their second trip of the season after the first one coming much earlier in the year. A lot has changed since then, but the strategy will remain the same as we will want to jam in as many dominators as possible to account for the 400 laps that we have scheduled to run on Sunday. A shorter track also means more practice data to sift through to help make decisions and gauge who has fast cars.

Top Driver Picks & Projections

Denny Hamlin $11,100 DraftKings / $13,500 FanDuel (3rd)

With Kyle Larson soaking up most of the exposure on the pole, don’t forget about Denny Hamlin who calls this his home track. He has been excellent here over the course of his career and even took the checkered flag at Richmond earlier in the year. He showed strong speed in practice and has been one of the fastest cars on the track this year. If he can grab the lead and get clean air he has one of the highest ceilings in the field. He  projects for just  7% ownership as of writing, mainly due to his starting spot, but is still the 6th highest projected driver in our NASCAR DFS projections. That’s a pay-up to be contrarian spot if there ever was one.

Ross Chastain $10,100 DraftKings / $12,500 FanDuel (2nd)

Similar to Hamlin, most will try to find a driver with place differential upside to roster alongside Larson up top, but I certainly don’t mind the pivot to Chastain here. He typically is mediocre most Saturday’s but he unloaded extremely fast and was fastest in practice in the 1/5/10 lap runs. Ross has had the speed at all track types this year and his pit crew has been phenomenal, it may be hard to pass Larson on the track, but he may be able to get the job done on pit road.

Kevin Harvick $9,100 DraftKings / $9,500 FanDuel (13th)

Short flat tracks have been Kevin Harvick’s bread and butter the past few seasons and while the price did come up after his victory last week, this is still an excellent tournament spot for him. He was first in green flag speed at Richmond earlier this year and was extremely fast at New Hampshire a few weeks ago. His starting spot will offer resistance from DFS players to roster him, but keep him on your GPP radars. He’s projected for 21% ownership but has 26% odds of finishing in the top-six in our NASCAR DFS Top Drivers Tool. Want access to the tool & more? Sign up today for our NASCAR DFS package!

William Byron $8,600 DraftKings / $9,000 FanDuel (4th)

Didn’t show elite speed in practice but was apart of the second group when the track got slower. But he followed it up with a strong showing in qualifying and he also dominated and won at Martinsville earlier in the year, and also dominated and finished top three at this track back in April. This is a great buy low spot on a struggling driver and he easily fits in as a potential third dominator.

Brad Keselowski $7,000 DraftKings / $6,000 FanDuel (8th) 

There is high risk here with the starting position, but Kes has shown promise at short flat tracks this year finishing top eight at New Hampshire and a strong result at Richmond earlier in the year. The 8th place starting spot is a little un-easy, especially with all the place differential around him, but this will lead to extremely low ownership for a driver with top ten upside at a track he is good at. If you really want to get contrarian here, Keslowski is coming in at just  1% ownership.
