NASCAR Fantasy Picks for Federated Auto Parts 400

Kevin Harvick took home the checkered flag in last weekend's Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Now the NASCAR world turns its attention toward the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway in Virginia.

With Saturday's next NASCAR Cup Series race rapidly approaching with a 7:30 p.m. EST start time, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your fantasy lineup to win the Federated Auto Parts 400 this year.

Federated Auto Parts 400 Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this weekend's Federated Auto Parts 400 race with five or more appearances at the Richmond Raceway track unless otherwise noted.

Kyle Busch
In terms of career performance at Richmond, Kyle Busch has put on an absolute dominant show. Busch boasts the best average finish (6.79), the most total wins (6), highest winning rate (20.69 percent), highest top-5 finishing rate (62.07 percent), highest top-10 finishing rate (75.86 percent) and the second-highest top-20 finishing rate (96.55 percent) at Richmond. In other words, there's a great chance you're going to get something solid out of Kyle Busch whenever he shows up to this track.

Denny Hamlin
Busch doesn't own the top spot in every career statistical category here, though it is close. That's because Denny Hamlin actually has him beaten in total laps led here, with 1,659. Hamlin is currently tied with Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. for the best odds to take the checkered the flag this Sunday in Richmond at +480, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Hamlin also boasts the second-best winning rate (11.11 percent), second-best top-5 finishing rate (48.15 percent) and third-best top-10 finishing rate (62.96 percent).

Joey Logano
Joey Logano isn't far behind the trio of betting favorites in this weekend's race either, sitting with +800 odds of his own to cross the finish line first. And no one has been better in their last six respective appearances on this track than Logano has, posting an average 5.67 finishing position during that stretch with one win and four top-5 marks to go with it.
