The NASCAR Cup Series’ GoBowling 235 is set for Sunday at 3:00 p.m. ET. The race will be aired on NBC and take place at the road course Daytona International Speedway. 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 Elliott ($10,300)

It’s no secret that Elliott is the road course king. He’s favored at +400 on DraftKings Sportsbook and has three road race wins since 2017. Elliott’s floor is a top five finish in this kind of race.

Martin Truex Jr. ($10,100)

Truex also has three road race wins since 2017 and is even with Elliot at +400. He has more momentum going into this race, as he’s rattled off four straight top three finishes. Getting the two drivers with the most recent road race success could be key to finishing in the money.

Sleepers

Alex Bowman ($8,200)

Alex Bowman is reasonably priced for a driver who averages a top 10 finish on road courses. Some could be deterred from rostering him because of how poorly he’s driven in August, but a road race could be just the change he needs to get a quality result.

Clint Bowyer ($8,800)

Bowyer has been finishing in the middle of the pack lately, but is one of the better road course drivers around. He’s averaging a top eight finish since 2017. While he doesn’t have any road course wins in the last couple years, he’s great at racking up top 10s.
