Joey Logano – Joey Logano is a strong competitor at Kansas. Since fall 2013 he has two wins and has finished in the top five in 6 of the 8 races. This spring he was likely around 10th place good but finished 37th because of a wreck. At the time of that incident he was running in 11th. Additionally in the race it should be noted he finished 10th in Stage #2. Last fall Logano was very good. When the checkered flag waved he finished 3rd, earned the 3rd best driver rating and had a 5th place average running position. In spring 2016 he had a great car and was likely top five good but he was taken out in a wreck when Denny Hamlin decided to take it three-wide into a corner and lost control of his car. In fall 2015 he had a great car and raced his way to victory lane. He did have to spin Kenseth at the end, but it should be noted he was clearly faster. In that race he led 42 laps, earned the 2nd best driver rating and had a 3rd place average running position. His four results prior to that were 5th, 1st, 4th and 4th. At 1.5 mile tracks Logano is starting to run better. In the two of the last three races at these venues he’s finished in the top ten. (Yahoo A Driver)

Jamie McMurray – Jamie McMurray should have a solid performance at Kansas. I would look for him to be a low double digits driver who’ll compete for a top ten. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s quietly been one of the best in the series. Over the 8 combined races at tracks of this length he has an 8.4 average finish, 7 top tens and has had a result in the top 12 every race. With him being so successful over the course of the season I would look for that trend to continue. This spring at Kansas, McMurray had a good race. He finished 8th, earned the 7th best driver rating and had a 12th place average running position. Additionally in the race he finished 4th at the end of Stage #2. Last fall he didn’t have an incident free race and finished 37th. While he was running in the mid-teens he had a tire go down and made contact with the wall which sent him to the garage. In spring 2016 it’s hard to know how good he was because following the first caution NASCAR black flagged him under green for unapproved body adjustments. That was a knock out blow that dropped him well off the lead lap and he never recovered from that which led to his 26th place finish. (Yahoo B Driver)

Daniel Suarez – Daniel Suarez will likely compete for a top ten on Sunday. The Toyota’s are quick so you know he’ll have an advantage on much of the competition, just by virtue of his equipment. In 4 of the last 5 races at 1.5 mile tracks he’s finished between 6th and 12th. This spring in his Kansas debut Suarez had a good race. He finished 7th, had an 11th place average running position and earned the 13th best driver rating. (Yahoo C Driver)
