The NASCAR Xfinity Series is headed to Texas Motor Speedway for the My Bariatric Solutions 300 on Saturday. The race will follow last Friday’s Alsco 300 and will begin at 3:00 p.m. ET. DraftKings has DFS contests for the race, and we break down the top plays and sleeper options worth considering below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Kyle Busch ($17,100)

Busch is significantly more expensive than all the other drivers competing for a reason. He’s won almost half the Xfinity races he’s competed in at Texas Motor Speedway, with nine victories at Texas. His last race at the venue was a win, and he hasn’t dropped outside the top three this season.

Austin Cindric ($10,800)

Cindric winning a third straight race would be wild, but he’s been amazing as of late. He’s cracked the top five in four of his last five races. His momentum and recent triumphs over Chase Briscoe make him seem like one of the best options available.

Sleeper Picks

Anthony Alfredo ($8,300)

Alfredo has notched sixth place finishes in three of his last four races. He hasn’t started in as many races as most of the field, but has cracked the top 10 six times in nine races. He’s performed at a solid level when he does compete and has top 10 upside.

Jeremy Clements ($8,700)

A good chunk of Clements’ upside comes from him starting in 22nd. He’s finished inside the top 15 in four straight races, so there’s a good chance he’ll have positive place differential. He isn’t too far removed from a top five finish and could get there again.
