The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Texas Motor Speedway for the first race in the postseason Round of 8. The green flag drops on the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET.

Before building any DFS NASCAR lineups on sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings, be sure to see Scott Engel's best picks for Texas. 

Engel is an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association's Hall of Fame and was 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 and SiriusXM NASCAR and Fantasy Sports Radio to break down the races from DFS perspectives

Engel recommended recent winners Kyle Larson (Charlotte Roval last week, Bristol, Watkins Glen) and Denny Hamlin (Darlington). He highlighted both Pocono weekend winners Alex Bowman and Kyle Busch as prime plays. Engel also correctly pinpointed Charlotte winner Larson as one of his top lineup picks in late May. Earlier this season, he backed Talladega winner Brad Keselowski, and Martinsville and Darlington winner Martin Truex Jr. in both events. 

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 DFS NASCAR 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. Last season, two SportsLine subscribers won DFS NASCAR tournaments in the same week using Scott's picks

For NASCAR at Texas, Engel is targeting Kyle Busch as one of his favorite drivers. The advanced statistics confirm that Busch will be a superb pick. This is also a great site for Austin Dillon to perform at his best levels for DFS purposes. Engel provides the important data that supports Dillon as a key lineup selection.  

Engel is also strongly recommending a quality bargain play at Texas who can provide a superb DFS return on Sunday. You MUST see Engel's top DFS targets for the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 before you set your lineups.
