BJ McLeod’s last three Monster Energy Cup races came on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks including last week’s 35th at Kansas Speedway.

McLeod also ran in last fall’s Kansas race where he finished 30th and in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway where he finished 32nd. Those results will not make him stand out in every game, but he may be a good value in Draft Kings where his price is going to be low.

The first time Todd Gilliland climbed into an ARCA car he was just two days past his 15th birthday, not even old enough to carry a valid driver's license. Yet, when the Sherrills Ford, NC driver climbed out, he was in victory lane at Toledo Speedway, etching his name in the record books as the youngest ARCA Racing Series winner in history.

The second generation driver, who just turned 18, will now try it on a bigger stage at Charlotte Motor Speedway Thursday night. Gilliland is entered in ARCA's General Tire 150 in the No. 54 Frontline Enterprises Toyota, a car fielded out of the nearby DGR-CROSLEY race shop. As a series regular on the NASCAR Camping World Truck tour, Gilliland is just one of a handful of drivers in the General Tire 150 field who has already competed at Charlotte.
