The NASCAR Cup Series’ Super Start Batteries 400 is set to begin Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET at Kansas Speedway on NBCSN. 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

Kevin Harvick ($11,500)

Harvick is the hottest driver in the series. He’s riding an impressive streak of top five finishes and is the pole sitter in Thursday’s race. He’s favored at +400 on DraftKings Sportsbook and is tied for the most career wins (3) at Kansas of the drivers competing.

Martin Truex Jr. ($10,600)

Truex has been very successful at Kansas since 2017. He’s won two of his last six races at the venue and also notched five top five finishes during that span. He hasn’t been very competitive lately but could get back in the hunt at a track where he’s been quite comfortable.

Sleeper Picks

Jimmie Johnson ($8,900)

Johnson is the only driver who can match Harvick’s three wins at Kansas. The veteran has won just about everywhere and will start in 20th on the grid. His average finish at Kansas is just upside the top 10, so there’s desirable position differential potential.

Tyler Reddick ($8,300)

Reddick has rattled off four straight top 10 finishes and could surge forward from 23rd on the starting grid. He finished ninth in his only other start at Kansas. He might not be competing for a win down the stretch, but could definitely use his momentum to tally another respectable finish.
