Martin Truex Jr. has been among the most successful drivers at Sonoma Raceway in recent years, recording two wins and a third place finish since 2018. Although he has been one of the strongest drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series this season, he's still in search of his first win. Considering his recent success in past NASCAR at Sonoma events, is he among the top picks to include in your NASCAR DFS lineups for Sunday's 2022 Toyota/Save Mart 350?
Another driver worth considering in the NASCAR DFS driver pool is Ryan Blaney. Although he came away victorious at the NASCAR All-Star Race a few weeks ago, he is still in search of his first regular season victory. This could be the weekend that Blaney breaks through, as he finished third at Sonoma in 2019, and has two other top-10 performances in his five total Cup Series races there. Before making any NASCAR DFS picks for the 2022 Toyota/Save Mart 350, be sure to check out the optimal NASCAR at Sonoma 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.
Last week, McClure was high on Joey Logano in his Enjoy Illinois 300 picks on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, and he won his second race in his last four events. Prior to that, McClure featured Kyle Larson, who finished ninth at the Coca-Cola 600. 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 Toyota Save Mart 350 NASCAR DFS picks
For NASCAR at Sonoma, McClure is high on Chase Elliott ($10,400 on DraftKings and $14,000 on FanDuel). Since 2019, Elliott has the highest driver rating on road courses (119.5), and an incredible six wins in 13 races. Since the start of last season, Elliott won at Circuit of the Americas and Road America, and he finished second in his last appearances at Sonoma as well as Watkins Glen.
Elliott sits atop of the season points standings (507), and has led for the second-most total laps (445). He is also third in total fastest laps (215), and has the sixth-highest pass differential (166). In three of his five cup series races at Sonoma, Elliott has finished eighth or better, and in last year's race, he ended as he began in second place, but led for 13 laps.
Another part of McClure's NASCAR DFS strategy includes rostering A.J. Allmendinger ($8,800 on DraftKings and $11,500 on FanDuel). Allmendinger has only raced in six events this season, but his last race was also his best of the year in the Enjoy Illinois 300, where he finished 10th. While Allmendinger has had mixed results throughout his career at Sonoma, his upside on road courses is high.
Since September 2018, Allmendinger has one win (Indianapolis), one top-five and two top-10 finishes in six road course races. Allmendinger's last full NASCAR season came in 2018, where he finished with one top-five and five top-ten results, and he ended the 2017 season with the same marks. His second-to-last top 10 during 2018 came at the road course at Charlotte near the end of the year, where he finished seventh, but started second.
