The 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 takes place at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The 1.5-mile oval with steeply-banked turns and relatively flat straightaways has provided plenty of excitement to the sport over the years. From 2004 to 2019, Homestead-Miami was the site of the final race of the season, crowning the NASCAR Cup Series champion. Last year, Homestead-Miami hosted the Dixie Vodka 400 in June, and Denny Hamlin delighted his NASCAR DFS owners with a dominant performance. Should Hamlin be part of your NASCAR DFS picks?
Hamlin could be a popular option in the NASCAR DFS driver pool this week, but what other value plays can help you afford the sport's biggest stars in your NASCAR DFS lineups? Before finalizing your NASCAR DFS picks for the 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the optimal 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 NASCAR DFS strategy and advice from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

Top 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 NASCAR DFS picks
For NASCAR at Homestead-Miami, McClure is high on Tyler Reddick at $9,200 on FanDuel and $8,500 on DraftKings. The 2018 and 2019 Xfinity Series champion got his first full-time opportunity in the NASCAR Cup Series last season and turned in nine top-10s on his way to a 19th place finish in the standings.
Reddick led three laps at the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 on his way to a fourth-place finish and was even more dominant on the 1.5-mile oval during his time in the Xfinity Series. Reddick won twice in three starts at Homestead-Miami and finished fourth in the other race. He also finished sixth or better in all three of his Truck Series starts at Homestead-Miami. Lock him into your Dixie Vodka 400 DFS lineups on Sunday.
Part of McClure's optimal NASCAR DFS strategy also includes rostering William Byron at $9,500 on FanDuel and $9,100 on DraftKings. The 23-year-old captured the first win of his career last season in the Daytona night race and made the NASCAR playoffs for a second consecutive season.
After suffering engine failure and finishing 39th at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2019, Byron rebounded to finish ninth at the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 in June. It was his best finish ever at the track in three starts and he also took third at the 2017 Ford EcoBoost 300 on his way to winning the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship as a 19-year-old.
