The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series is back for another week of virtual racing to keep us occupied during the Covid-19 pandemic. DraftKings has joined the fun with DFS contests around the race, and this week we are at Bristol Motor Speedway. You can enter contests here.

There will be no live scoring in this weekend’s eNASCAR DFS contest. The entire event will be scored after the race is complete. You fill out a six-driver lineup. Each driver will receive or lose a point for place differential from their starting position, get 0.5 points each time they finish with the fastest lap, and receive 0.25 points for each lap they lead. The driver with the most points earned at the end will be named the winner.

Best DFS options

Timmy Hill ($10,700) is the highest priced driver, but William Byron ($10,500) is the odds-on favorite. He was on track to win last week before Hill spun him out. Both are looking like two of the better drives in iRacing, so why not get just a little more value with Byron?

Alex Bowman ($9,600) is the sixth highest priced driver and has the eighth best odds. However, fifth and sixth place finishes each of the past two weeks have him the second highest performer in points per race.

Sleeper DFS options

Bubba Wallace is $7,900, but ninth in points per race. He has been invested in iRacing, which offers some value that you wouldn’t otherwise think about for this format. Behind him you can find some value in Ty Dillon ($6,600). He has no top ten finishes, but each week has moved up just enough to offer some value. You don’t need the race winner or even a top five finisher to perform well in eNASCAR DFS.
