Alright it's not fully back until next week when the Daytona 500 kicks off the season as far as points-races go, but that won't stop us from playing DFS for the Advance Auto Parts Clash as both Fanduel and DraftKings have contests for it.

The starting lineup will be determined by random draw.

The 38-year-old Eau Claire, Wis., native has participated in four prior Clash events, with a best finish of third in his most recent start in 2016.

Former Clash victor Kyle Busch will line up alongside Menard on the front row for Sunday afternoon's 75-lap event. Six times the victor of the Clash has gone on to win the first official race of the season, with the most recent being Denny Hamlin in 2016.

The field is made up of drivers who won a Cup pole in 2018, former Clash winners who competed full-time in 2018, former Daytona 500 winners who competed full-time in 2018, former Daytona 500 pole winners who competed full-time in 2018 and drivers who qualified for last year's Cup playoffs.

The late Dale Earnhardt is the all-time Clash wins leader, with six victories (1980, '86, '88, '91, '93, '95). Hamlin and Chase Elliot will start in the back row with backup cars after wrecking their primary cars in Clash practice.

All 20 eligible starters secured rides and will race in the Clash on Sunday, live at 3 p.m. on FS1.
