The NASCAR Cup Series’ Xfinity 500 is set for Sunday at 2:00 p.m. ET. The race will take place at Martinsville Speedway and will be broadcast on NBC. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers below.

Best Bets

Martin Truex Jr. ($11,800)

Truex is the most expensive option in the contest and the favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook at +325. He’s tallied two wins and five top five finishes in his last seven starts at Martinsville. His history at the track and performance this year makes him easy to plug into DFS lineups.

Kyle Busch ($9,600)

The Joe Gibbs Racing team could have a solid weekend. Busch secured his first Cup Series win of the year in his last race and has just as many top five finishes as Truex at Martinsville since 2017. The momentum from his last win could help him put together another strong race.

Sleepers

Kurt Busch ($8,500)

Kurt hasn’t been as successful at Martinsville as his brother as but has been in top form lately. He has three top 10 finishes in his last five races. He’ll start in fifth on the grid and should have a good chance to stay in the hunt early.

Christopher Bell ($6,800)

Bell has notched two straight top 10 finishes and is looking to follow up a third place finish at the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 his last time out. He typically shows up when he starts inside the top 15 and should be in a great spot kicking off this race in 11th.
