NASCAR Sprint Cup: 10 Drivers Who'll Be in the Running at Kansas

As the Chase moves on, NASCAR's next stop is another cookie cutter one and a half mile track.  The Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas will be dominated by speed and fuel mileage decisions much like Charlotte was.

Unlike Charlotte though, this track has recently been re-paved, and might have a different feel than it did back in April.

With Clint Bowyer winning the Charlotte race, the Chase scene went from a three-man race between Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson to a four-man race which now includes Bowyer. 

The point standings changed slightly after Charlotte, with Johnson and Hamlin catching up to Keselowski.  Bowyer and Biffle would also move up spots. 

Kansas will more than likely end up being a fuel mileage race, but new pavement often means blazing speeds.  Certain teams will have to settle for a top five instead of going for the win if it comes down to saving fuel at the end.

Who will end up winning the race on Sunday?  Will the points change or will Keselowski maintain his current lead?  We will have to wait until Sunday to find out, but here are 10 drivers you can expect to be in the running at Kansas.
