As NASCAR returns today at Darlington, The Lady In Black can be your ticket to up to $1000 in DraftKings Sportsbook’s Darlington picks pool today.

There are 11 questions to be answered, and if you’re right about enough of them you’ll be a winner! Let’s take a look at some of them and make some picks that might cross the finish line first on the way to the free prize.

Who will have the highest finish this week?

Denny Hamlin
Chase Elliott
Kyle Busch
Kevin Harvick
Jimmie Johnson

Kyle Busch is the money line favorite here at +550, but we’ll go with Harvick who had a second-place finish last time out, and has a smidge better record at shorter tracks over the last season.

Will Joey Logano finish in the top 3?


Sliced Bread is a great driver, but Logano struggles at The Track Too Tough to Tame. He’s got one Top 3 at Darlington in 11 races, a second-place finish in 2014. We’re fading one of NASCAR’s most controversial drivers here.

Who will have the highest finish this week?

Clint Bowyer
Matt Kenseth
Kurt Busch
Brad Keselowski
Ryan Newman

Keselowski is starting on the pole, finished second at Darlington last September, and won at the track in 2015. He’s also the highest-priced fantasy pick of the five drivers here. We’ll take him.

Will the winning car number be odd-numbered or even-numbered?


Of the big choices, here’s who you get with even: Busch, Harvick, Hamlin, Jones, Byron, Bowman, The Other Busch, Johnson, Kenseth. That’s enough for us. We’ll go with the even side of the field.
