NASCAR has a rare Xfinity Series doubleheader taking place, and it wraps up Sunday with the Contender Boats 250. The race is scheduled for noon ET on FS1. This follows Saturday’s Hooters 250 that opened NASCAR’s weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

DraftKings has DFS contests available for this second race, and it could make for some interesting picks coming off such a quick turnaround. We break down some ideal picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Saturday picks

Ameer Tyree offered up two best bets and two sleeper picks for Saturday’s Hooters 250, and they panned out pretty well. His two best bets were Chase Briscoe and Noah Gragson. They finished 7th and 3rd, respectively. His two sleepers were Anthony Alfredo and Brett Moffitt. They finished 4th and 35th, respectively. We’re not going to be perfect, but three top seven finishes is not too shabby.

Past performance is not indicative of future returns, but you could do worse than the three strong finishers. Moffitt will start near the back of the pack due to an accident, and we’d suggest doubling down on him. If he can remain relatively unscathed, he has a good shot at finishing in the top half of the finishing order.

New picks

Ryan Sieg ($7,300) has stumbled with regularity, finishing 28th and 35th the last two races. It’s worth noting, however, that on Saturday, he had 16 of the fastest laps and led 27 laps. Things went south, but there’s some modest upside on Sunday based on Saturday’s performance.

Justin Haley ($6,600) started 10th on Saturday and finished 13th. He’s scored at least 27 DKFP in all but one race this year, so there is a strong floor for the price you’re paying. He’s starting third on Sunday, which could open the door to him adding some laps led to his performance.
