Get ready to strap in for a thrilling NASCAR Cup playoff race at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 2 pm ET. Before assembling your NASCAR DFS lineups on FanDuel or DraftKings, you must review Scott Engel's top picks and key strategies for Martinsville, as there will be prime choices and potential spoilers to consider.
Engel is an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association's Hall of Fame and is a two-time finalist for the FSWA Racing Writer of the Year award. He is a longtime Fantasy NASCAR analyst who has appeared on ESPN.com, Bleacher Report, the New York Daily News, SiriusXM NASCAR and Fantasy Sports Radio to break down the races from DFS perspectives.
Engel determines his preferred selections by using Loop Data, which are advanced statistics that are electronically recorded by NASCAR to accurately illustrate how drivers perform. Loop Data stats are very useful in NASCAR DFS to tell us which drivers truly will perform the best at particular tracks. They determine how a driver actually fares without the negative factors of crashes, car issues and pit problems. Two SportsLine subscribers won NASCAR DFS tournaments in the same week recently using Engel's picks. Engel also recommended last week's winner at Texas, Kyle Busch, as one of his prime picks.
For NASCAR at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, Engel is looking at Bubba Wallace as one of the best choices. The advanced statistics suggest Wallace is a terrific pick based on his starting position and a key Loop Data indicator. You can also expect another strong showing from Martin Truex Jr. at Martinsville. Engel shares numbers that indicate Truex could earn a much-needed playoff victory while making a bid for his third consecutive win at the site.
Engel is also recommending another playoff hopeful who needs to push for a win on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top NASCAR DFS targets for Martinsville before you set your lineups.
