Kasey Kahne Fantasy NASCAR

Kasey Kahne – Kasey Kahne deserves serious fantasy NASCAR consideration at Kansas. In recent races at high-speed intermediate tracks his team has dialed up more speed and he’s been running very well. At Kansas Kahne has had some strong showings. In half the races since the track resurfacing he’s finished in the top 4. This spring at Kansas Kahne ran well despite having to make two pit stops early in the race which dropped him back in the pack. He managed to drive all the way up to the top ten after that problem but at the end he seemed to fade. When the checkered flag waved he finished 16th. Performance wise I would say he was really about 10th place good. Last fall he had a strong performance. He started 24th, had an 11th place average running position and finished 4th. In the race he was a steady performer who continually moved forward. In spring 2015 he had about a 10th place car but finished 17th after plummeting in the running order because of the late caution. If the caution didn’t come out he likely would’ve finished 9th. Also in the race it should be noted he had a 10th place average running position and earned the 10th best driver rating. In fall 2014 he walked away with an asterisk mark 22nd place finish. In the race he started in 10th and looked like he had top five potential. Unfortunately his race wasn’t incident free. He made an unexpected pit stop while running in 3rd with 38 laps to go and then later with 18 laps to go he pancaked his car into the wall which led to his 22nd place finish. In spring 2014 he had a very strong showing. Outside of Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick he had one of the best cars. In the race he finished 3rd, earned the 4th best driver rating and had an 8th place average running position. (Yahoo B Driver)

Carl Edwards – Kansas is Carl Edwards home track and he’s run very well here. His 10.6 average finish statistically ranks this as his 5th best track. In recent Kansas races he’s been very consistent. In 5 of the last 6 races he’s finished between 5th and 11th. This spring he had a good car and he had to battle hard to finish 11th. His race wasn’t incident free. He had a flat tire under green which dropped him two laps down. Shortly before he had his problem he was a driver who ran in the top five. Last fall he had a solid showing. He started 2nd, finished 8th and had an 11th place average running position. In spring 2015 he looked top ten good for much of the race but in the last third he didn’t look as strong. Then with 38 laps to go he made an unscheduled pit stop for a vibration. When the race reached its conclusion he had a 12th place average running position but finished 20th. In the three Kansas races prior to that he had results of 5th, 5th and 6th. (Yahoo B Driver)

Kurt Busch – Kurt Busch has had success at Kansas. Currently at this 1.5 mile track he has three straight top tens. Over this three race stretch he has the 5th best driver rating, a 5.7 average finish and a 6.3 average running position. This spring he had a successful showing and was a consistent front runner. In the race he started 4th, had a 4th place average running position and finished 3rd. Last fall he had a very strong showing and consistently ran in the top 8. When the race reached its conclusion he finished 6th, earned the 6th best driver rating and had a 7th place average running position. In spring 2015 he had another solid showing finishing 8th, having an 8th place average running position and leading 20 laps. Prior to that event he was in a tough stretch at Kansas. This year at high-speed intermediate tracks he’s been one of the more consistent performers. On Sunday I would look for Kurt Busch to probably finish somewhere between 8th and 13th. (Yahoo A Driver)
