The Xfinity Series will join the Cup and Truck Series at Nashville Superspeedway this week. This will be the first race since the Xfinity Series took two weeks off following their race in Portland. The Xfinity Series has completed 14 races and now they have 12 races left until the playoffs start. There is still plenty of time for drivers below the cut-line to score a victory and earn a spot in the 2022 playoffs. The field is stacked this week so it should be pretty fun to watch. The Tennessee Lottery 250 can be seen Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on USA. (Most of the rest of the Xfinity Series races are on USA Network this year).
XFINITY SERIES PRACTICE RESULTS
Practice and Qualifying for the Xfinity Series was split up this week. The teams had their practice session Friday and then came back Saturday morning for group qualifying. Most of the teams were able to make at least one long run in practice so we should get a good idea of which cars have the speed by looking at the times from Friday’s practice session.
DFS POINTS AT SIMILAR TRACKS (2022)
Nashville is a 1.33-mile tri-oval track. The most similar tracks to Nashville are Phoenix, and Richmond. Dover is similar in size but has a lot more banking. I am looking at the drivers who ran well at these three tracks for the DFS lineups this week.
Here is the driver’s average DraftKings Points on similar tracks to Nashville in 2022…
STRATEGY FOR NASHVILLE
The Tennessee Lottery 250 is scheduled for 188 laps (250 miles). That means there are 47 points available for leading laps and 84.6 points available for fastest laps. The race at Nashville was dominated by Kyle Busch. He led 122 of the 188 laps. I do not think the race will play out like that this year since the field is more even.
The race Saturday should have two main dominators and one sub-dominator. I expect one driver to lead roughly 96 laps and score 58 fastest laps (50.1 dominator points). The second dominator should lead roughly 64 laps and score 34 fastest laps (31.3 dominator points). The third dominator in the race should lead roughly 26 laps and score 14 fastest laps (12.8 dominator points). We will cash every lineup if we can find these three drivers for out teams today. I will pay up for the drivers I think can lead the most laps Saturday.
Here are my top dominators for the Tennessee Lottery 250: Ty Gibbs, Noah Gragson, Justin Allgaier and Trevor Bayne

DFS EXAMPLE LINEUPS
Each year I get told the same thing… I used your lineup and I did not win the big jackpot. That is because 25-50 other people copied and pasted my lineup too and you had to split the pot 25-50 ways. The lineups posted this year will be examples on how to create a lineup for the race. You can copy and paste, but just know a lot of other people will have the same lineup. (It is OK to copy and paste the Cash Contest lineup). There is plenty of information in this article to help you create your own unique lineup to give you a better chance of winning.
