NASCAR Race Previews “by DFS Numbers” feature a combination of statistical package benefits from Loop Data reports and the RotoBaller Cup Series Research Station.
Loop data, advanced statistics that have been electronically logged by NASCAR to more accurately show how drivers are performing, are displayed as relevant indicators. Loop Data stats are useful in DFS NASCAR to tell us which drivers have performed best on certain tracks. They determine how the driver actually copes without the negative factors of accidents, car problems and pothole problems. Keep in mind that with the Cup Series now showing the next generation car, the Loop Data stats are useful, but they aren’t rigid factors when viewing performance.
One of our top features in the RotoBaller NASCAR Season Pass is the NASCAR Research Station. It’s a deluxe set of advanced NASCAR stats that can help you identify the best drivers and valuable plays to build the perfect squad each week. Includes historical, recent, and forecast stats and frequency data. If you want to work on your fantasy NASCAR setup using the best statistical tools, this is your digital garage for building your DraftKings and FanDuel kit.

AdventHealth 400: By DFS Numbers
The drivers are listed in order of preference to use. Search station indicators are written in italics. All Loop Data stats go back to 2020 at Kansas Speedway, which covers the last four events of the Cup Series. We use DraftKings pricing as a basis, but most of what we recommend should also apply to FanDuel lineups.
Kyle Larson: Best consecutive driver rating of 134.1. The first in the fastest lap (103) and the second (262). He starts in third and should push to the front of the pack quickly.
Joey Logano: Fourth in Lapse LED (96). He did a spin and hit a wall in practice, so he’ll start in 34th and obviously a huge place to play differential.
Chase Elliot: Leads in quality permits (car permits in the top 15 under green flag terms, 259). Fourth in driver rating: 107.6.
Kyle Bush: He finished second among the closest (average 2.5 points earned in the last 10 percent of races in Kansas). I had the second best average of 10 consecutive laps in practice. Draw for the best implied odds of finishing in the top five (37%).
William Byron: 3rd place in fastest lap (77). He finished the race in the top six in three of the last four Intermediate competitions.
Christopher Bell: Lead in green flag cards (421). It starts on the shaft and can do a good amount of turns. It was also the fastest in practice.
