Drivers to Watch 

Greg Biffle

After a huge win at Texas that brought Greg Biffle back into the conversation for a Sprint Cup Series title, the veteran looks to build on that success at Kansas Speedway. With Roush/Fenway Racing having a storied tradition at the track already, Biffle will have the inside lane to a win.

Brad Keselowski

While the season hasn’t gone exactly how the NASCAR star would have liked, the success the young driver had at the track over the years is undeniable. In two Kansas races last season, Keselowski finished in first and third.

Carl Edwards­

In seven out of nine career races at Kansas Speedway for Carl Edwards, the fitness freak has finished in the top 10. While this season hasn’t been exactly what Edwards was hoping for, the turnaround could easily begin this week.

 

Predicted Winner: Brad Keselowski
