NASCAR Price Check – GEICO 500 - Fantasy Salary Review

The NASCAR Cup Series’ GEICO 500 is set to run on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. The race is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m. ET. There’s no telling who will take the checkered flag over the weekend, and several winners from years past will be in the running.

Denny Hamlin (+650) is the pole sitter and the odds-on favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. He sits atop the points standings. He hasn't finished outside the top five in his past six races and is looking to end a six-year drought at the GEICO 500. Joey Logano won the race in 2018 and has the second-best odds (+900) as he joins Hamlin on the front row. He’s third in the points standings this year. Martin Truex Jr. (+2200), William Byron (+2000), last week’s Toyota Owner’s 400 winner — Alex Bowman (+1800) — and Christopher Bell (+2500) round out the first three rows in the starting lineup.

Here is the full lineup for Sunday’s 2021 GEICO 500.
