In this edition of the Father and Son Fantasy NASCAR Hour, the Engels interview Richard Childress Racing’s Austin Dillon, driver of the No. 3 Dow Chevrolet in the Monster Energy Cup Series. Sean and Scott cover various topics with Dillon, including how rules changes will affect his outlook this year, the impact of Loop Data, and much more. Dillon even dishes out some Fantasy advice for DFS players. Then the five-time draftkings NASCAR tournament winner Sean and the two-time FSWA Fantasy Racing Writer of the Year nominee Scott break down the field for the Clash at Daytona.

Sean’s Tips and Ideal Lineup for the Clash at Daytona

I definitely like Brad Keselowski ($10,100) and Denny Hamlin ($8,600) for their history on restrictor plate tracks. Keselowski was the last driver to win a race at Daytona and Denny Hamlin’s average finish of 11th is the best out of any driver participating in the clash. Keselowski’s teammate, Joey Logano ($9,400), has also shown strong history at Daytona, being a previous Daytona 500 winner as well as remaining competitive over numerous restrictor plate races. Kyle Busch ($8,300) has been improving at Daytona and has finished third and second within his last two starts at the site. Austin Dillon ($6,600) is a perfect pick for someone looking to save a bit of salary as he has shown remarkable consistency at Daytona by finishing in the Top 10 during the last three Daytona races.

  • Brad Keselowski ($10,100)
  • Joey Logano ($9,400)
  • Denny Hamlin ($8,600)
  • Kyle Busch ($8,300)
  • Austin Dillon ($6,600)
  • Jamie McMurray ($6,300
