The NASCAR Cup Series’ South Point 400 is set to begin on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. ET at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race will be aired 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

Brad Keselowski ($11,400)

Keselowski is just one race removed from a win and has a great record at Las Vegas. He’s finished inside the top 10 at Las Vegas seven times in 11 Cup Series starts. He has three career wins at the venue, which bodes well for his success.

Martin Truex Jr. ($10,600) & Joey Logano ($10,300)

Truex and Logano have both won two races at Las Vegas since 2017. They have similar price points, but Truex has finished inside the top five in eight of his last 10 races. You’re likely to get a solid performance from one of these two regardless of who you pick.

Sleeper Picks

Aric Almirola ($8,300)

Almirola has the fourth most top 10 finishes (20) in the field but ranks 13th in salary. While some bad finishes have dragged his average finishing position down, he’s typically able to hang around the top 10. While he doesn’t have great history at Las Vegas, he’s notched three top 10 finishes there since 2017.

Clint Bowyer ($8,100)

Bowyer has surpassed his DKFP average (34.3) in six of his last 10 races and has seen his drop despite three straight top 10 finishes. He’s finished in sixth in three of his last 10 races and has recorded at least two of the fastest laps in eight straight races.
