Drivers to Watch

Tony Stewart—With Stewart having two wins on this track, including the final Texas race of 2011, there is no safer driver to bet on right now. A strong car every week and domination on this track will lead to another win for Smoke.

Matt Kenseth—There is no more of a consistent driver in NASCAR than Matt Kenseth and his record at Texas is crazy good. With 13 top-10s, 10 top-fives and two wins, it’s safe to say that the No. 17 with Kenseth behind the wheel has dominated.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.—Texas was another track that Junior dominated when he was winning races, but struggled at through the middle of his career. As bad as he was for a while, Earnhardt finished ninth and seventh last year and looks to build on that.

 

Predicted Winner: Matt Kenseth
