Xfinity Series Fantasy Picks for Daytona

Facebooktwitter

The Xfinity Series will join the Cup Series at Daytona this week. This is not the end of the regular season for the Xfinity Series like it is for the Cup Series at Daytona. The Xfinity Series still has three races left on their regular season schedule before their playoffs begin at Bristol. 12 drivers make the playoffs in the Xfinity Series and there are eight drivers who secured their spot by winning a race this year. There is still plenty of time for another driver to add his name to the list and a trip back to Daytona is a good track for it to happen. The WaWa 250 can be seen Friday night at 7:30 p.m. ET on USA Network.

 

NO PRACTICE /QUALIFYING AT DAYTONA

NASCAR changed their rules for the Superspeedways last year. The teams are no longer allowed any track time to practice before the race. The teams lined up the cars for single lap qualifying to set the lineup for the Wawa 250.

 

AVERAGE DFS POINTS ON SUPERSPEEDWAYS (2023)

The Xfinity Series has competed in four Superspeedway races this year. These races include Daytona and Talladega. We can also include the two races at Atlanta since the draft comes into play at that track. The drivers who scored well in the DraftKings Contests in these four races should have the best chance to score well again Friday night.

Here are the average DraftKings points on the Superspeedways in 2023…

 

STRATEGY FOR DAYTONA

Most people will be selecting the drivers who start outside the top-20 Friday night because that is what the “DFS Experts” have been preaching for years. I will be playing some of the drivers who start in the back, but I will be pairing them with the drivers who start up front who have a history of finishing up front in these races. These drivers include:  Austin Hill, Sheldon Creed, Trevor Byane and Justin Haley

The strategy for the Cash Contest will be to select six drivers who start outside the top-15. These drivers should be the safest plays Friday night. The lineup may not have the ceiling that the tournament lineup has, but that is not our goal. We simply need to outscore half of the field to take home the money.
