New, 2 comments

NASCAR’s Xfinity Series race was postponed due to rain on Tuesday, and will now air on Thursday. We break down some DFS options for the Toyota 200 at Darlington Raceway.

Racing returned last weekend with the Real Heroes 400 marking the restart of the 2020 Cup Series schedule. The Xfinity Series was set to return on Tuesday with the Toyota 200, but rain resulted in the race being washed out and postponed. It has now been rescheduled for Thursday, and will air at noon ET on FS1.

DFS returns for the race, and we’ve got some options to consider. You can enter your lineup here.

John H. Nemechek ($4,900)

Nemecheck finished ninth in Sunday Real Heroes 400, and got wrecked right out of the gate last night through no fault of his own. His Sunday performance suggests he’s comfortable on the track. For this kind of price, you have to go with the upside.

Kyle Busch ($16,000)

He’s the most expensive option by a long shot, but coming off a second place finish in the Toyota 500, he’s got some comfort at the track. He’s an accomplished driver, and the deep start at 26 gives him a chance to earn quite a few points for improving his place differential.

Ryan Sieg ($8,000)

He’s starting the race fourth, which gives him an early chance to build some laps led if he can climb to the front. More important, he had a great start to the Xfinity Series season before the season was suspended. In four races, he had finishes of third, fourth, ninth, and 11th. He has only led one lap on the season, but he’s in position to break out at Darlington.
