The Xfinity Cup Series is in Dover, Delaware at Dover Downs for today’s Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway. Not to be confused with tomorrow’s Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway. 2020, y’all. It’s weird.

You can set your lineup here, and the contests locks at 12:45 p.m. ET.

Modest Sleepers

Michael Annett ($7,900)

Starts in the eight-hole today spot today. In his last two oval races, he took two straight pole positions and turned them into a sixth and an eighth, and tenth for an average of 31.5 DFS points each. Has ten Top-10 finishes this season, and is in an even better position today with the ability to pick up place points if he can beat eighth. In a series where consistency shows better equipment, he’s been solid since the Covid break.

Timmy Hill ($7,600)

Sat out the two previous weeks of road races, but prior to that had improved on his starting position in each of the last seven races, averaging 34 DFS points each. Today he takes the green flag in 36th, so there’s plenty of place points on offer.

Deep Sleepers

Tommy Jo Martins ($5,400)

Gets by far his best starting grid spot of the year in 14th position, but has improved on where he’s started in each of his last six races, including four on ovals. Place points will be tough here as he doesn’t have top-five equipment, but with even a 13th you’d be thrilled considering his salary cap price of $5,400. Has averaged 35.8 DFS points across his last six races, including 30.0 on ovals.

Kyle Weatherman ($6,100)

The salary structure is starting to catch up to him, but he’s still got value at this bargain basement price. The problem with bargain hunting in the Xfinity Series is the equipment of drivers is so disparate, you’re really having to hope for wrecks in front of you to find value. Weatherman does tend to end up in the wall a bit, but if he can find clean concrete today you’ll be in good shape with him starting in 20th position. A clean run is very possible at The Monster Mile.
