The Truck Series will join the Cup Series at Bristol this weekend for some dirt track racing. Playing in the mud is nothing new for the truckers. El Dora and Knoxville are no longer on the schedule, so now the only race on dirt for the truckers is at Bristol this week. That is too bad, because some of the best Truck Series races were at El Dora on the dirt. I guess we will just have to enjoy this race Saturday night. The Weather Guard Truck Race on Dirt can be seen Saturday at 8 pm ET on FS1.
The field is stacked this week since some of the Cup Series drivers want to get some extra seat time to master their dirt track skills. William Byron will be in the No. 51 truck for Kyle Busch Motorsports, Joey Logano will be in the No. 66 truck for ThorSport Racing and Chase Briscoe will be in the No. 22 truck for AM Racing. “Superman” will also be racing Saturday night. Dirt Track Ace, Jonathan Davenport will drive the No. 7 truck for Spire Motorsports. There are many great choices for our DraftKings lineups this week.
DFS STRATEGY FOR BRISTOL
The race Saturday is scheduled for 150 laps (75 miles). That means there are 37.5 points available for leading laps and 67.5 points available for fastest laps (105 dominator points). The trend in the Bristol Dirt Race is for one to lead 90 laps and score 38 fastest laps (39.6 dominator points), another driver to lead 50 laps and score 22 fastest laps (22.4 dominator points). We will cash every lineup tonight if we are able to find the top two dominators for our lineups. I plan to pay up for the drivers who I think will lead the most laps in the Bristol Dirt Race.
The drivers with the best chance to score dominator points tonight are Ty Majewski, Joey Logano, Stewart Friesen, Ben Rhodes and Chase Briscoe
The drivers with the best chance to score place differential points include Chase Briscoe, Grant Enfinger, Christian Eckes, William Byron, Rajah Caruth, Nick Sanchez, Parker Kligerman, Matt Dibenedetto, Carson Hocevar, Jonathan Davenport, Tyler Carpenter and Tanner Gray

DRAFTKINGS CASH CONTEST PICKS
DRAFTKINGS TOURNAMENT CONTEST PICKS
* I really liked what I saw from the ThorSport Racing Trucks in the Heat Races, so I will stack their trucks for tonight’s race (Joey Logano, Ben Rhodes, Ty Majewski, Matt Crafton and Hailie Deegan). I also like what I saw from Kaden Honeycutt, so he will be my punt play.
DRIVER GROUP GAME PICKS
The Driver Group Game will once again have a contest for the Truck Series. It is easy to play. You simply select one driver from Group A, two drivers from Group B and one driver from Group C for your lineup. You can only use the drivers in Groups A & B six times throughout the season. You can only use the drivers in Group C five times throughout the season, so you have to use your allocations wisely. Here is the link to join: DGG Truck Series Game
Here are the drivers I will use for the Weather Guard Truck Race on Dirt Saturday night…
Good luck with your lineups!
