Over the course of his career, Jeff Gordon has dominated a number of tracks. The Hendrick Motorsports driver has taken the No. 24 to Victory Lane 92 times and won at every track outside of Kentucky.
But if there’s one track that he’s consistently mastered over his illustrious career, it’s Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The inaugural Brickyard 400 was won by Gordon. Since that point, he’s captured four more checkered flags to tie the all-time record for victories at IMS.
At 43 years old, Gordon has fallen off a little at the track, right? Wrong. Since 2011, Gordon holds the best average finish at 3.8 with a win in last year’s race. He’s also led 88 laps over that span, adding extra fantasy points to DraftKings owners.
On a track where only 160 laps are run, finishing position will be crucial. Picking a driver who has a career average finish of 8.38—yes, that’s absurd—and more wins than any other NASCAR driver seems like a pretty good option.
When said driver is 10th on the DraftKings price sheet? Yeah, he should be in every single lineup.
Owners who pair Gordon up with another top-tier driver will still be able to fill out a complete lineup to dominate any daily fantasy game. When Gordon bookends his outstanding career with another win at Indy, his owners will come away with a huge prize.
