Kyle Larson isn't the only Hendrick Motorsports driver making waves in the Cup Series, as teammates Chase Elliott and William Byron rank third and fourth, respectively, in the standings. That gives Hendrick three of the top four drivers entering Sunday's 2021 Ally 400. While rostering Larson in your NASCAR DFS lineups may put your salary cap in a bind, forming NASCAR DFS stacks with Elliott and Byron could be a prudent move. Both have claimed checkered flags already this season, so they will enter Nashville Superspeedway with plenty of confidence.
Counting last week's NASCAR All-Star Race, Hendrick Motorsports drivers have won the last five races. So, it's understandable that you'd want to slot them into your 2021 Ally 400 DFS lineups, but you also need to be aware of under-the-radar NASCAR DFS picks who could bring value to your lineups. Before finalizing your NASCAR DFS picks for the 2021 Ally 400 on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the optimal NASCAR at Nashville DFS strategy and 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 on Sunday.
Last week, McClure had Kyle Larson listed as his top NASCAR DFS pick and he went on to capture the win at Texas. His model, which simulates every race 10,000 times, has also nailed at least seven of the top 10 finishers in seven of the last 13 races. Anybody who has followed his picks has seen huge returns.
Now, he's turned his attention to Sunday's 2021 Ally 400. He's only sharing his picks and NASCAR DFS driver pool here.
Top 2021 Ally 400 NASCAR DFS picks
For NASCAR at Nashville 2021, we can tell you McClure is high on Kyle Busch ($12,000 on FanDuel, $9,900 on DraftKings), who has five top-10 finishes over his last six races and won Saturday's Xfinity race at Nashville. The first win of Busch's professional career came as a 17-year-old at Nashville Superspeedway in the ARCA Menards Series.
More success at the track would only follow, as over Busch's last four NASCAR Xfinity at Nashville appearances, he won once, was runner-up twice and had a third-place finish. He was even more dominant on the Truck Series, as he won both of his Nashville appearances while racing for his Kyle Busch Motorsports team.
Part of McClure's optimal NASCAR DFS strategy also includes rostering Martin Truex Jr. ($13,000 on FanDuel, $10,400 on DraftKings), who has three wins this Cup Series season and ranks second in playoff points. Truex Jr. ranks sixth in NASCAR standings and is on pace for his fifth consecutive finish among the top 10.
Nashville Superspeedway is a new track on the Cup Series schedule, but it's configured similarly to Darlington. Both are just over 1.33 miles and consist of four turns. It was just a month ago that Truex Jr. won at Darlington for the second time, so he's clearly experienced success on these kinds of tracks. Truex Jr. was the first driver this season to reach two wins, the first to reach three wins, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he was the first to reach four wins at Nashville.
How to set 2021 NASCAR at Nashville DFS lineups
McClure is also targeting an undervalued driver set to return plenty of value. He's in a prime position to make a run at the checkered flag and comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing huge in your NASCAR DFS tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can see every pick here.
