The NASCAR’s Xfinity Series’ Alsco 300 is set for Friday at 8:00 p.m. ET. The race will take place at Kentucky Speedway and will be aired on FS1. Will Austin Cindric stay strong after taking home a win in Thursday’s Shady Rays 200? 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

Chase Briscoe ($11,600)

The winningest driver in the series this year has notched three straight top five finishes and is basically always a lock for the top 10. Starting in 12th bodes well for his place differential, and he’s either won or finished in second every time he’s started outside the top 10 this season.

Austin Cindric ($10,200)

Cindric just had a great run at Kentucky and led a ton of laps while consistently being the fastest around the track. He held off Briscoe down the stretch in his last race, and that makes him dangerous in this one. Although he’s had more success with road races, he might be on the brink of figuring out the whole oval thing.

Sleepers

Myatt Snider ($9,300)

Snider has has provided great place differential upside in his last two races. While he didn’t benefit from being the pole sitter in his first two races of the season, he cracked top seven finishes in the last two races where he’s started inside the top five on the grid. He might not win, but he has decent shot at cracking the top 10 and leading some laps.

Riley Herbst ($8,500)

Herbst was second to Cindric on Thursday after starting in 23rd and will have a more optimal starting position this time around at 14th. If he can replicate the performance from his last race, he could notch a second straight top five finish.
