Update: I deleted Matt DiBenedetto from the below table Sunday morning because he’s out due to a concussion. Jeffrey Earnhardt will replace him, but Earnhardt is not available in DraftKings today, so I didn’t add him to the list.

Here are my DraftKings driver points and price/point predictions for tomorrow’s Texas II race. To predict how many DraftKings points each driver will score tomorrow, I plugged my driver rankings for tomorrow’s race into my projection model, and Friday’s qualifying results. Then, to calculate each driver’s price/point, I simply divided each driver’s price by their predicted points.

The below table lists all drivers running tomorrow, and it’s sorted from lowest price/point to highest. If you’re on a small-screen device, scroll the table horizontally with a finger drag to see all the columns.
