NASCAR DFS players and Bettors are preparing to finish strong on DraftKings at the Xfinity 500 this Sunday for the second to last race of the year Martinsville Speedway. This incredible short track has been in my sights to get a bag on since 2019 when I made an incredible lineup but wasn’t able to actually put money on my lineups.
That Sunday that Brad K took the dub haunted me for the longest because I would have brought home a pile if DraftKings was legal in Louisiana at the time.
I’m over it now (sorta) and I’m not letting anything get in the way this year for myself, or for the Garage Fam when it comes to betting and DFS. This is an exciting weekend for many reasons, but this year is the first year I’ll actually be attending the race, and I intend to make the most of it.
You’ll notice this article only lists one of my four driver picks for DFS and Betting, but be sure to check back in on Saturday for an updated version. You’ll also find the full LIVE stream of the Xfinity 500 NASCAR DFS Preview Show LIVE from Hooters in Charlotte, NC on Garage Guys Fantasy Sports YouTube included.

Xfinity 500 DFS Lineup Picks & Best Bets For DraftKings Sportsbook
#9 Chase Elliott – ($10.1K | To Win +600 )
Chase Elliott (AKA Bills Boi) has what it takes to win at this track, and with Chase looking to win his first oval race of the 2021 season, I feel that he’ll be in a great position to make it happen starting P2. Elliott won this race last season, and it carried it to a championship run. With Larson’s Martinsville struggle, I can see Chase racking up some solid dominator points on Sunday.
#12 Ryan Blaney – ($9.7K | To Win +700 )
Starting in P8, Ryan Blaney is the guy I’m looking at to bring the noise at The Paperclip. Blaney has been impressive at this track since 2019. He has finished four out of five races at Martinsville inside the Top 5.
There is a feel-good story waiting to happen after last year’s incident that caused Blaney to finish P11. I say that because we have seen a new side of Ryan this year as a competitor, and while he may end up in some bad luck situations from time to time, he knows his best shot to the Championship Four starts with darting to the front on Sunday without holding a thing back.
I feel very confident in Blaney’s ability to win this race and be one to rival the dominant Kyle Larson at this track. Blaney is 7 to 1 on DraftKings Sportsbook and I’m looking to lay down 1.5 units on him for a 12 Unit payout.
#8 Tyler Reddick – ($8.2K | +260 Group D Winner )
Reddick (IMO) has been one of the top improved drivers this season that has yet to win a race, and if you say he’s not then you probably don’t watch racing. At Martinsville, Reddick has one Top 10, and could easily bring home another this Sunday. The dirt guys seem to vibe well with MVille, and with his recent spike in competitiveness, and the hunger for his first win. He is a guy you’ll want to sprinkle in some DFS lineups this Sunday.
#7 Corey Lajoie – ($6K | Top 20 +170 )
Cory Lajoie is a man who has been on a mission in racing. Spire has been a really good team switch, and we have seen some far improved results for Lajoie this season. Look for Cory to make a possible Top 20 impact in Martinsville.
