Happy Easter Sunday Garage Fam, and welcome to the day Dirt rises again at Bristol Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Food City Dirt Race. I’ve been cooking up NASCAR DFS picks all Easter eve for the dirt race, and I feel like it’s finally time to share them (thanks for your patience I’m a terrible Fantasy ExpArt on this weekend of the lord). We had a nice little cushion built by our NASTRUCKS team here at Garage Guys on Saturday night, and I can’t let it go unnoticed.
After that absolute BAG GRAB by Yoder and Tanhardt, I’m feeling extra confident with my NASCAR best bets for Sunday, and my DFS prep. There are some obvious plays we’ll have to take (BIG DIRT RINGER BOIS) but where the money is made will be in the hands of the unexpected drivers to rip top.
NASCAR Cup Series practice and Heat races are in the books, so we have all the data we’re going to get this weekend. Many casual players are going to load up big on guys like Larson, Bell, Reddick, etc (dirty bois), but you can’t pin all of them in one lineup. The most important thing I can stress this weekend is playing a shit ton of lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel (no single entry zone!).
I would hope that most of you who read this article and play NASCAR DFS on DraftKings and FanDuel are also bettors. If you are, go download the Action App for free to follow my picks each week in the NASCAR Cup Series.

NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks | Food City Dirt Race At Bristol
#1 Ross Chastain (DraftKings – $8.5K | FanDuel – $6.8K)
Let’s get right to it, Chastain is starting 33rd on Sunday, and from what I have seen in lap averages he should be a steal. Chastain has been really good at almost every track, and always finds a way into the conversation after the sensational year Trackhouse Racing has had. The place differential potential is off the charts for Chastain this Sunday so label it as a Golden Egg.
#8 Tyler Reddick (DraftKings – $9.2K | FanDuel – $11.5K)
I finally feel like the door is about to open wide for a Tyler Reddick NASCAR Cup Series win, and he feels it too. I haven’t personally spoken to Reddick this weekend, but everything from practice and qualifying says my statement is true. I look for Tyler to grab the lead early starting in P3 and dominate this race.
#12 Ryan Blaney (DraftKings – $9.4K | FanDuel – $9.5K)
Blaney is another place differential potential candidate I love this weekend. He will be starting P25 on Sunday night, and should easily move with the power of Penske. out of all three Penske drivers, Blaney has shown the most consistency, and I don’t care about him not having much dirt experience to be a stud for us in DFS.
#47 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (DraftKings – $7.7K | FanDuel – $8.3K)
I shouldn’t even have to type anything here, but I do it because Ricky Stenhouse Jr. deserves it. Stenhouse posted the second-fastest 10 Lap average in Friday’s late practice run when he was committing to the top of the track. I look to see Stenhouse move all around, and be our middle man starting P16. This is one race you can count on Stenhouse to deliver, and I even think he has a chance to win this thing.
