What to do with Kyle Busch in NASCAR DFS at Kentucky Speedway

Can Kyle Busch make some noise and get his first win of the season at Sunday’s Quaker State 400?

Last year’s NASCAR Cup Series winner still hasn’t gotten a win this season. Kyle Busch finished in sixth at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekend, but Sunday he’ll race in the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, where he’s had some great runs in recent years. Is Busch a top-notch DFS target this weekend?

History at Kentucky Speedway

Busch has tallied three straight top five finishes at Kentucky. He has two wins and eight top 10 finishes in nine starts. Brad Keselowski is the only other driver in the field with more wins at Kentucky than him. Busch has led more laps (621) than any other driver competing.

2020 performance

Busch might not have any wins, but he’s done a decent job at finishing inside the top 10. He has seven top 10 finishes but hasn’t but together impressive streaks of races. He’s finished in second twice this season. Will victory continue to elude him?

Daily fantasy advice

I bought into Busch last week, and I’ll double down ahead of this week’s action because of how well his cars have run at Kentucky. His odds (+600) second to the piping hot Kyle Harvick’s (+400) on DraftKings Sportsbook and he shouldn’t break the bank.
