Drydene 311 Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this weekend's Drydene 311 race with five or more appearances at the Dover International Speedway track unless otherwise noted.

Chase Elliott
Chase Elliott is fresh off winning last Sunday's Go Bowling 235 at Daytona, and his career résumé at Dover International Speedway brings a lot of optimism for a repeat performance this weekend. Elliott boasts the second-best average finishing position (8.63) here, second-best winning rate (12.50 percent) and tied for the best top-5 finishing rate (75.00 percent).

Martin Truex Jr.
While Martin Truex Jr.'s career marks at Dover remain competitive, no one has been better on this track over their last six respective races than Truex. Truex's career average finishing mark here is 12.18, however, he has posted an incredible 4.83 average finishing position over his last six, which includes one win and five top-5 finishes.

Kyle Larson
Even though Truex has the best average marks here as of late, Kyle Larson still boasts the most laps led at Dover over the past six races, with 532. And with 16 fewer total races run here, Larson has a much smaller sample size than Truex as well. Yet, Larson has posted some incredible numbers in his 12 total appearances, including the second-best top-5 finishing rate (50.00 percent), tied with Elliott for the best top-10 finishing rate (75.00 percent) and the fourth-best top-20 finishing rate at an incredible 91.67 percent.
