Here are my Top 15 DraftKings NASCAR driver lineups for tomorrow’s race at Fontana. To compile them, first I plugged my driver rankings for tomorrow’s race and Friday’s qualifying results into my driver points projection model to project how many DraftKings points each driver will score tomorrow. Then I ran those points projections through an algorithm I created in Google Sheets with the OpenSolver add-on, which chewed through all possible driver combinations to spit out the 15 best lineups for tomorrow’s race.

The results are in descending order, and the total predicted points have been rounded to the nearest whole number. If you’re on a small-screen device, scroll the table horizontally with a finger-drag to see all the columns.

Note: If you want to see my points projections for each driver and their price/point value, I’ve posted my Fontana driver points and values projection table, too.
