NASCAR’s Gander RV and Outdoor Truck Series has the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 set for Saturday at 6:00 p.m. ET at Kentucky Speedway. The race can be seen 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

Austin Hill ($10,800)

Hill still hasn’t dropped outside the top 10 this season and remains the points leader despite being winless. He’s easily been the most consistent driver in the field, so getting him as the second most expensive option in the slate is a steal.

Todd Gilliland ($10,200)

Gilliland’s streak of quality performances hasn’t lasted as long as Hill’s, but he’s been one of the better drivers in the Truck Series as of late. He’s put together three straight top 7 finishes since recording a 37th place finish at the North Carolina Education Lottery 200. He’s tallied two top five finishes in his last three races and has momentum on his side.

Sleepers

Tyler Ankrum ($9,000)

Ankrum is the only driver in the field with a Truck Series win at Kentucky under his belt. He’s notched two straight top 10 finishes and has an optimal starting position (3rd). He led for 90 laps the last time he raced at Kentucky and could lead for a while if he gets out front.

Ben Rhodes ($8,700)

Rhodes has the most truck experience at Kentucky with three starts. While he only has one top 10 finish there, his driver rating at the venue is 101. Starting sixth on the grid could help him get another top 10 finish.
