It’s time for my NASCAR DFS lineup picks to ” Meet Virginia” this week (that’s Train lyrics if you didn’t know) as NASCAR heads to Richmond Raceway for the Federated Auto Parts 400! DraftKings is going to be more flooded than ever now that football season is back, but while I do dabble in some NFL DFS, my main focus stays with us, the TC GANG (AKA Garage Fam).
Before we dive into my NASCAR DFS picks, I just want to give a huge shoutout to Darlington because she allowed us to tame her last weekend with a full-blown Garage Guys Betting Sweep (It’s also pretty dope the way “The Power” by SNAP sounds over racing clips).
Now that you’ve seen possibly the best hype video in NASCAR Betting history (promise there aren’t many), let’s talk track! Richmond Raceway is the stage for the second race in the 2021 NASCAR Playoffs, and things can get out of hand quickly when running on this 0.75 Mile D-Shaped oval.
Kyle Larson starting on the pole, and we have some good options for place differential this week which are making me lean off of Kyle quite a bit. I’m not saying I will be fading him by any means, but Gibbs and Penske seem to dominate Richmond for the most part. This notion has me excited to tell you who I’ve selected as my Quad Squad this week to deliver us BIG BAGS!

Federated Auto Parts 400: Lineup Picks, Odds For DraftKings
#19 Martin Truex Jr. – ($10,200 | +550)
Martin Truex Jr. is frustrating to deal with at times when using him in lineups, but something is telling me that he’ll be one of the highest scorers in NASCAR DFS on Saturday Night (It’s stats that are telling me that). I can’t pass up the price drop on Truex this weekend, and I do think he could easily be the winner of the race (Vegas thinks so too). Starting in P3, he could easily jump to the front, especially if Kyle Larson and Denny Hamlin scuffle early running P1 and P2.
#3 Austin Dillon – ($8,400 | +5000 )
Austin Dillon (or as I call him, AD) starts P19 on Saturday night at Richmond, and I’m ready to watch that 3 car run! Richmond Raceway has been kind to Dillon over the past few years, and I truly believe Austin has it decently figured out. Dont expect AD to win this thing, but when it comes to place differential and closing ability, I want the RCR 3 Machine in my lineup.
#47 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. – ($6,700 | +10000)
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is my Gut Boi Pick for NASCAR DFS this week, and he’ll find himself in about 50% of my lineups. Do I think he can win this race? No, not really, but I’m hoping to see a Top 12 run from our BIG FUN Guy in the NASCAR Cup Series. Stenhouse Jr. holds the title for most Green Flag laps at this track, and you’ll wanna have that guy who keeps moving slow and steady while your other picks are accumulating quick points on DraftKings.
#43 Erik Jones – ($6,600 | +20000 )
Erik Jones is the dryest human being on earth (I’m convinced) even though I’ve never personally met the guy. Aside from that, he is Captain Chalk Lord of Richmond this week in NASCAR DFS on DraftKings, so the dryness doesn’t matter. Erik has shown he can get a positive place differential in the RPM equipment, and with him starting P31 at that price this weekend, I’m “JONESIN” for some Erik Jones.
