Martin Truex Jr. is still in search of his first win this season, but when NASCAR at Road America returns on Sunday, he should feel like he has a strong chance to notch his first victory. The 2022 Kwik Trip 250 will mark the third road track race of the year, and Truex Jr. already has one top-10 finish at another in the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix in Austin. Should you look past his 26th-place finish at Sonoma earlier this month and include in him your NASCAR DFS lineups?
Chris Buescher had his best finish of the season at Sonoma, when he came in second. Is Buescher a potential option in the NASCAR DFS driver pool on Sunday when the green flag drops? Before making any NASCAR DFS picks for the 2022 Kwik Trip 250, be sure to check out the optimal NASCAR at Road America DFS strategy and lineup advice from SportsLine's Mike McClure.
McClure has won almost $2 million in his career as a daily Fantasy pro, and his NASCAR DFS driver pool, projections and advice can help you score a big win.
Recently, McClure was high on Austin Cindric in his Toyota/Save Mart 350 picks on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, and he finished fifth after starting 25th. Prior to that, McClure featured Joey Logano, who won the Enjoy Illinois 300. His model, which simulates every race 10,000 times, called seven outright winners last season. Anybody who has followed his picks has seen huge returns.

Top 2022 Kwik Trip 250 NASCAR DFS picks
For NASCAR at Road America, we can tell you McClure is high on A.J. Allmendinger ($9,100 on DraftKings and $11,000 on FanDuel). Allmendinger has raced a part-time schedule this season for Kaulig racing, but has held his own over the last three weeks. Prior to taking back-to-back 19th-place finishes in Sonoma and Nashville, he had a 10th-place showing in the Enjoy Illinois 300.
Allmendinger has been competitive in the races that he's been in this year with an average mid-race position of 18.6, up from his average starting position of 24.4. Throughout his career, Allmendinger has driven well on road courses, and his most recent came just last year at Indianapolis. Prior to that, he took seventh- and fifth-place showings from two of his three other road track appearances in 2021.
Another part of McClure's NASCAR DFS strategy includes rostering Daniel Suarez ($7,700 on DraftKings and $11,500 on FanDuel). Suarez's stock has been on the rise since he won the All-Star Open ahead of the 2022 NASCAR All-Star Race. On June 12, he also won the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Suarez ended up with a 15th place finish in last weekend's Ally 400, but qualified well to start fifth.
Suarez's first win this season was also on the second road track event of 2022. Although he finished 24th at Circuit of the Americas at the end of March, he started second in that race and was able to lead for just under one-quarter of the laps. For the year, Suarez is just outside of the top 10 drivers in the Cup Series in total number of fastest laps with 127. Get NASCAR DFS picks here.
