Our top consensus play has been on fire and has been a MUST for any lineup.   This week, same as the last race, Jimmie Johnson was picked by 10 of 12 experts and all of our top 5 experts!

Highly Touted

  • Jimmie Johnson (10x) – 2 wins out of last 4 and a 3rd place.   Starting in the back so don’t expect a win, but should finish with a big place differential
  • Joey Logano (9x) – Pole Position on short track and finished 3rd last year with the pole.   Good chance to win it!
  • Denny Hamlin (7x) – Won the event last Spring.   Running hot this year,  Starting position will have him in place for the win.


  • Brian Vickers (6x) – Racing well and super value.  Hoping for a top 15 finish with this pick.
  • Austin Dillon (6x) – Has a Top 20 finish in 3 of 4 races at Martinsville and 50% of the time on short tracks.   GPP play
  • Kevin Harvick (5x) – May not win the race but he has been putting up fantastic DK numbers and that should continue this week


  • Dale Earnhardt, Jr (4x) – 3rd highest driver rating at Martinsville and Top 5 finish in 3 of last 4.
  • A.J. Allmendinger (4x) – 11th or better in 5 of last 7 races at Martinsville
  • Jamie McMurray (3x)
  • Chase Elliott (3x)
  • Ryan Newman (3x)
  • Carl Edwards (3x)
