Dover Speedway – NASCAR
Dover is a 1-mile concrete track with 24 degrees of banking in the corners and 9 degrees in the corners. For the Xfinity Series, this is a fun race track that puts on a solid race. For the Cup Series, Dover is a track position nightmare. Passing is damn near impossible and the cars make so much downforce currently that they handle too good. This makes driver mistakes less frequent. Also makes the races here horrible to watch. The two biggest things the Cup drivers have to deal with are long green flag runs and making a green flag pit stop. This is one of the most difficult pit entries under green. In both series we will look to play the best of the best teams. Equipment matters a ton and we always see the elite teams filling up the top 10.

NASCAR Cup – DFS Outlook
400 laps is a lot when it comes to DFS and that means dominator points (laps led and fast laps) should be most important for building lineups. Both DK and FD will play the same way this week. We will look to hit on the two main dominators and then fill out our lineups with the best value plays. I am having a very hard time seeing anyone outside of Truex, Hamlin, or Larson dominating this race. They have been the class of the series all year long and all 3 are fantastic here. I and loading up on these 3. On FanDuel we can focus a little more on great mid tier place diff plays like Kurt Busch, Almirola, and Alex Bowman. Lineup building feels a lot easier on FD. On DK, I see everything and everyone as being viable. I can justify playing Quin Houff based on my desire to stack Truex, Larson, and/or Hamlin together. It is a tough week to build with the favorites because at this point they are the highest priced drivers and will likely be that way for the rest of 2021. These are the type of races that I love to utilize the DFS Army Domination Station to help work everything out for me. Feels like so many things are possible.

Xfinity DFS Outlook
This race feels very similar to the Cup race for me. My two favorite potential dominators start 1st and 2nd. I am loading up on them to lead a large amount of the race and I am also doing some stacking with those two. There are a handful of fantastic place diff plays which are obvious and another handful of great value plays who will see lower ownership than they should but have a lot of upside. Feels like a great week to attack the chalk dominators but to pair them with the leverage value plays. Ryan Sieg, Snider, and Brown stand out. Most of the super value plays carry some risky and are sketchy at best. This should make things interesting on the back end of lineups. There are so many ways that you can build for this race which should make for an exciting DFS slate. I like going with at least 1 dominator and then playing a lot of the place diff driver with top 10 or 15 upside.
