NASCAR’s Shady Rays 200 of the Xfinity Series is set to begin Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET at Kentucky Speedway 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

Chase Briscoe ($11,400)

Briscoe is the priciest option and the most enticing DFS option. The Xfinity Series points leader has won three of his last four races and is riding a two-race winning streak. His lone career start at Kentucky in the series ended with a fifth place finish, so I’d bank on him remaining competitive.

Ross Chastain ($10,000)

Chastain has still only dropped out of the top 10 once this year and has notched four straight top seven finishes. While he doesn’t have Xfinity experience at Kentucky, he has raced trucks at the venue and finished fourth there last July. His level of consistency simply can’t be beat.

Sleeper Picks

Justin Haley ($9,100)

Haley is fifth in the standings and has posted stop seven finishes in four of his last six races. While his odds (+2500) aren’t the best on DraftKings Sportsbook, he’s one of the five drivers with a win this season. He’s a wild card with zero Xfinity races, but has been good enough to take a chance on.

Harrison Burton ($9,700)

Burton has been far from good lately with three straight races outside the top 20. But he only trails Noah Gragson in top 10 finishes. He’s driven well at Kentucky in the truck series, so maybe that will translate to Xfinity. When he’s on he can rattle off an impressive streak of top 10s.
