The playoffs are looming heading into Sunday's 2021 Quaker State 400. Among the notable drivers not to earn a victory in 2021 is Denny Hamlin, who leads the points race by just three points over Kyle Larson despite not taking a checkered flag through 20 starts. Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch and Bubba Wallace are also NASCAR DFS notables who will be looking for their first win this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Will one of those drivers claim their first win of 2021 when the green flag for the Quaker State 400 2021 drops at 3:30 p.m. ET? Or should you anchor your NASCAR DFS lineups around Larson as he pursues his fifth victory of the year?

McClure had Chase Elliott listed as his top NASCAR DFS pick last week, and Elliott went on to earn the win at Road America last Sunday.

Now, he's turned his attention to Sunday's 2021 Quaker State 400. He's only sharing his picks and NASCAR DFS driver pool here.

Top 2021 Quaker State 400 NASCAR DFS picks

For NASCAR at Atlanta 2021, McClure is high on Kevin Harvick at $10,900 on DraftKings and $11,700 on FanDuel. Harvick is currently ninth in the NASCAR Cup Series standings, having recorded six top-five finishes this season. Harvick was 10th in the 2021 Atlanta spring race.

Harvick has done everything but win in 2021, placing as high as second at Kansas and notching 14 top-10 finishes. Although Harvick has only led 39 laps so far this season, he only has one DNF to his name. With three Cup series victories to his credit in 31 career Atlanta starts, Harvick is one of the strongest NASCAR DFS picks on Sunday.

Part of McClure's optimal NASCAR DFS strategy also includes rostering Martin Truex Jr. at $9,000 on DraftKings and $12,500 on FanDuel. Truex has three victories this season and is seventh in the standings. Truex ran ninth in the 2021 Atlanta spring race.

Truex is no stranger to victory lane in 2021, as he captured the Phoenix and Martinsville spring races. Truex is third in laps led this season, trailing only Kyle Larson (1,441) and Denny Hamlin (768) with 647. Truex hasn't been to Atlanta's winner's circle, but he has five top-fives and 11 top-10s at the 1.54-mile speedway.
