The NASCAR Cup Series’ Coca-Cola 600 is set to begin Sunday at 6:00 p.m. ET at Charlotte Motor Speedway. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the 600-mile race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Chase Elliott ($9,700)

Elliott led for 28 laps during the Toyota 500 at Darlington on Wednesday before Kyle Busch made contact with him and forced him to crash down the stretch. The speed of his car and pit crew should help him be in the hunt again at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Denny Hamlin ($10,800)

Hamlin is bound to be a favorite being fresh off a win at the Toyota 500. He also has nine top five finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson is the only racer in the field with a lower average finishing position at this track.

Sleeper Picks

William Byron ($9,000)

Byron became the youngest pole-sitter ever ahead of last year’s Coca-Cola 600 at age 21 and has improved each time he’s raced on Charlotte’s track. His crew chief Chad Knaus put together helped put together eight first place cars for Jimmie Johnson. Byron could be next in line if he makes this run in Charlotte his best one yet.

Jimmie Johnson ($9,200)

Johnson is a legend at Charlotte Motor Speedway and has won the Coca-Cola 600 four times. This is is final season racing full-time, so he should be gunning to go out on a high note on a track he has a ton of experience with. He’s fresh off an eight place finish at Darlington and still has plenty left in the tank.
