Here are my top 25 DraftKings NASCAR driver lineups for tonight’s race at Texas. To compile them, first I plugged my driver rankings for tonight’s race and Friday’s qualifying results into my driver points projection model to project how many DraftKings points each driver will score at Texas I. Then I ran those points projections through an algorithm I created in Google Sheets with the Solver add-on, which chewed through all possible driver combinations to spit out the 25 best lineups for tomorrow’s race.

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

The lineups:
