Drivers to Watch
Kenseth is the current points leader in the Sprint Cup Series, and he won the Daytona 500 earlier this year. He has been racing extremely well this year and has already had success on this track. Kenseth has an excellent shot to get his second win of the season.
The 28-year-old has won three races this season, the most of any driver in the series. But he hasn’t been as consistent as the other drivers and currently ranks 10th in the standings. Keselowski will be looking for another solid result to keep moving up the board.
Johnson has the most top-five finishes this season (nine) and is tied for the most top-10 finishes (13). These numbers show that Johnson will almost certainly be in the mix in the final few laps. And if that is the case, he has a fantastic shot to tie Keselowski with three wins on the year.
Predicted Winner: Jimmie Johnson
