The NASCAR Cup Series’ Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 is set to begin Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. ET at Martinsville Speedway on FS1. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Kevin Harvick ($11,200)

Harvick is fresh off a win at the QuikTrip 500 on Sunday. He’ll have the first pit stall on Monday, and his crew should be able to use that to his advantage, He has four top five finishes at Martinsville since February of 2018. He has the eighth highest odds on DraftKings Sportsbook (+1100).

Jimmie Johnson ($12,500)

Johnson has the most wins (9) at Martinsville and 19 top five finishes. The seasoned veteran has notched three straight top 15 finishes. He’s pricey, but has been a solid driver lately and has been very successful at the track.

Sleeper Picks

Ryan Blaney ($8,400)

Blaney has three top five finishes under his belt since the NASCAR returned last month. He’s also cracked the top five at Martinsville in three of his last four races at the track. Blaney has been in the hunt so much recently, so it’s not a stretch to say this could be the race where he finally gets the job done.

Clint Bowyer ($8,600)

Bowyer led for 58 laps early in Atlanta and had 30 of the fastest laps before he dropped back and finished in 20th. He wasn’t owned at a high percentage across the board and has tallied three straight top 20 finishes.
