BUY TICKETS: See the races at Richmond RELATED: Set your lineup " Top 10-lap times " Practice results With the Toyota Owners 400 just hours away (2 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), it's time to set your NASCAR Fantasy Live lineup. Here is some last-minute fantasy insight for the spring race at Richmond. Prices are market values in the NASCAR Fantasy Live game for this weekend. Austin Dillon ($20.50) is starting from the rear for failing pre-race inspection five times at Bristol Motor Speedway. Dillon will line up 38th (where he qualified after taking an interesting qualifying lap to conserve tires ), making him a potential place-differential bonanza for fantasy owners. Dillon was sixth and 24th in Saturday's two practices. In six starts at the 0.75-mile track, the Richard Childress Racing driver has an average finish of 22.3. If he were to finish in that range on Sunday, the place difference would easily make him a top-15 fantasy driver on the day. Erik Jones ($20.25) is starting the race 20th. The rookie was running strong for much of the Bristol race on Monday and has quietly put together a nice start to his first season. The driver of the No. 77 Toyota finished all three practices in the top five -- meaning the speed is there and he should be one that makes a move up in the field. That could earn owners place-differential points and possibly stage points, as well. Denny Hamlin ($25.00) is the most recent Richmond winner and has three career wins at the 0.75-mile track. The Virginia native is well known for his short-track prowess and has led 1,594 laps at Richmond in his career. He only qualified 16th, but was a top-seven car in all three practices. Add to that the fact that he placed top five in the best 10 consecutive laps category for the final two practices, and it's easy to make a case to roster him.

In the coming days and over the course of the next two weeks, fantasy football fever will sweep the nation as coworkers, family, friends and foes alike will gather online or in person to hold drafts for the 2016 season. Even Yahoo! Sports has created a National Draft Day set for Aug. 28. NASCAR XFINITY Series driver of the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet and fantasy fanatic Ty Dillon will be among those involved. Dillon plays and participates in season-long or daily fantasy games for fantasy baseball, basketball and football. "I was in the SiriusXM fantasy league last year (made it to the finals) and I do about four to five fantasy football leagues every year but I've also in the past year-and-a-half gotten into daily fantasy stuff," Dillon told NASCAR.com earlier this month during a break in the action at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course . "I love sports so much so it's something that I watch so many games on my own just being a fan that I could have some fun with it doing the daily stuff and I really have." Dillon says he prefers season-long when it comes to football as it's how he first discovered fantasy sports. He went on to describe daily fantasy for basketball as "really tough" but enjoys baseball "because the analytics of the sport and the stats that you can find. I can do two hours of research a day on just daily baseball stuff. It's kind of a fun hobby for me." The North Carolina native is big supporter of the Atlanta Braves, Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets -- the NBA team for which Dillon's wife Haley dances -- but his fantasy rooting interest never trumps that of the teams he roots for.

The Dillons' friends and family league is where the big bragging rights are. The league has been running for several years and has grown into a high-stakes, competitive outlet. The chief trash talking in the league does not come from Ty's older brother Austin (who fields the No. 3 Chevrolet for RCR in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series), but from a surprising source. "The one that talks the most trash is our mom (Tina)," Ty said. "She's really good. She's really competitive at fantasy , especially our season long. We have a lot of fun with it. It's something that we look forward to every year."
