I’ve used my lineup optimizer to compile my top 30 DraftKings NASCAR driver lineups for today’s Chicagoland race. To compile them, first I plugged my final driver rankings for today’s race and the starting lineup into my driver points projection model to project how many DraftKings points each driver will score at Chicagoland today. Then I ran those points projections through an algorithm I created in Google Sheets with the OpenSolver add-on, which churned through all possible driver combinations to calculate the 30 best lineups for today’s race.

The lineups are sorted in descending order of total predicted points scored, and the total predicted points have been rounded to the nearest hundredth. I posted them in a PDF file you can download and view for $1. Here’s the link: Chicagoland 2016 DraftKings Lineups

Note: No guarantee comes with my lineups, rankings, predictions, etc. Use them at your own risk. To get a feel for how the lineups look, check out my Kansas I 2016 DraftKings lineups.

Good luck today!

    Hi Hal! It looks like Ty Dillon will drive Regan Smith’s car today, but he’s not available in DraftKings. DraftKings sets its driver prices early week (Monday?), and I don’t think they add drivers after that. Dillon wasn’t on the radar screen early week, so he didn’t make the list.

    My original top 30 lineups included Smith twice, but I deleted those two lineups because I wasn’t sure if he’d drive or not. So I guess my top 30 is actually my top 32 today…
