It is finally here!! The final edition of the 2019 Kyle Busch Show for the Truck Series. Busch so far is 4 for 4 in the truck series winning all the races he has entered. During those races he has averaged 99.2 points on DraftKings. Everything will revolve around him this weekend in terms of lineup making. As for the track itself Charlotte is a 1.5 mile track with some similarities to Atlanta and Texas. Long run speed will be important as always so pay close attention to practice speeds especially the 10, 15 and 20 lap averages. There are 36 trucks on the entry list for this week which means 32 teams will not make the race. It will be important of course to not have any of these drivers in your lineups so if using the Domination Station be sure to uncheck these drivers.

Quick Note: Domination Station will be available AFTER qualifying times are set Friday afternoon. Due to the tight window between qualifying and the race coaches notes will NOT be available for the Truck Series race.

Lineup Building

Dominator / Top Tier

Kyle Busch has won here 7 times in the Truck Series. He will of course be the favorite to win and dominate however the lower amount of laps are something to be considered. Paying off his $16,000 price tag will be difficult no matter what but it is certainly possible. Other top contenders for the win will be Brett Moffitt and Stewart Friesen. With Kyle Busch based lineups you will use a 1 dominator lineup. Otherwise lineups without Busch should consider playing 2-3 top tier drivers who will potentially led laps and score a decent amount of fast laps

Mid to Low Tier

We have an ultra deep field this week which means there will be a ton of value at great prices. There are several drivers priced below $6500 that will be in good equipment but are priced where they are due to DK not really understanding what their situation is. Often times this is due to a driver having a crash which brought down their average points score such is the case with Anthony Alfredo. Other cases like Trey Hutchens, Codie Rohrbaugh and Camden Murphy are priced ultra low due to them being completely unknown. Make sure to use the Research Station to see which drivers are showing good speed and can deliver great value at their price.


As mentioned above there are some really cheap plays that could offer some value. However, given the low DNF rate and high quality of the teams racing this week traditional punts like Benning and Cobb should be avoided. When playing Kyle Busch you will most likely need to play 1 driver from this area so choose wisely based off practice info that is available.
