1) Kevin Harvick (Starting – 2nd)
Kansas Fantasy Spin – Kevin Harvick is a super-elite performer at Kansas who’ll be tough to beat. He’s thrived here, and he’s performed exceptionally well at 1.5 mile tracks this year which correlate to success. For the season at tracks of this length minus the two races he’s had trouble he has 3 wins, a 2.2 average finish, a 3.8 average running position and has finished in the top five every race. At Kansas, Kevin Harvick is arguably the best performer. He’s a three-time winner who’s finished in the top three in 7 of the last 10 races. Additionally over this ten race stretch he has 3 wins, the best driver rating, the best average finish (4.8), the best average running position (5.0) and has led the most laps (592). In practice, the #4 car was very fast and Logano felt he had the best car. He had great speed late in a run and his 15 lap average ranked as the best. On Sunday I would look for Harvick to finish in the top five and be a serious threat to win.
Kansas Track History – Kevin Harvick has excelled at Kansas. This spring he had a great car and raced his way to victory lane. In the race he earned the best driver rating, had a 2nd place average running position, led 79 laps and finished 2nd in Stage #1 and Stage #2. Last fall, Kevin Harvick had a strong car but finished a misleading 8th. “Performance Wise”, he was top 3 good but he used some pit strategy late that burned him when a caution came out shortly after he pitted. Just before pitting he was running in 3rd. In the race he finished 2nd in Stage #1, 2nd in Stage #2 earned the 3rd best driver rating, had a 5th place average running position and led 37 laps. In spring 2017 he finished 3rd, earned the 4th best driver rating and had an 8th place average running position. In 2016 he raced his way to victory lane in the fall, and finished runner-up in the spring.

2) Kyle Busch (Starting – 7th)
Kansas Fantasy Spin – Kyle Busch will be one of the drivers to beat at Kansas. He’s run well here and he’s been strong at similar 1.5 mile tracks. At Kansas, nobody has been more consistent than Kyle Busch. Over the last seven races he has five top 5’s and has finished in the top ten every race. Also over this stretch he has the 2nd best average finish (6.0), the 2nd best average running position (5.7) and the 3rd best driver rating. This year at 1.5 mile tracks he’s arguably been the best. For the season at tracks of this length he has 3 wins, the best average finish (4.1), the best average running position (6.0) and he’s the only driver who’s finished in the top ten every race. In practice, Busch had a great car. He had the best ten lap average in both Saturday sessions and his fifteen lap average in Happy Hour ranked as the 2nd best. On Sunday I would look for Busch to finish in the top five and be a factor to win.
Kansas Track History – Kansas has been a great track for Kyle Busch. This spring he had a strong showing. He finished 10th, had a 6th place average running position and earned the 4th best driver rating. Additionally, he finished 8th in Stage #1 and 4th in Stage #2. Last fall he had a great car but finished an asterisk mark 10th. Late in the race he pitted from 2nd, but shortly after that a caution came out which dropped him back in the running order.

3) Joey Logano (Starting – 1st)
Kansas Fantasy Spin – Joey Logano is a strong performer at Kansas who should be high on your fantasy NASCAR radar. In 7 of the last 10 Kansas races he’s finished in the top five. On Sunday I think he’ll finish in the top ten and compete for a top five. He was fast this spring, and he’s been one of the most successful drivers at 1.5 mile tracks. This season at tracks of this length minus Charlotte he’s finished in the top ten every race and has a 6.3 average finish. Las Vegas is the most recent 1.5 mile track visited and he finished 4th there. At Kansas, Logano has been particularly strong in the fall. Over the last five October races he has 2 wins and has only once finished outside the top five. In Happy Hour his fifteen lap average ranked as the 5th best.
Kansas Track History – Kansas has been a great track for Joey Logano. Earlier this year Logano had a strong car. He finished 3rd, earned the 3rd best driver rating and had a 4th place average running position. Additionally, he finished 4th in Stage #1 and 5th in Stage #2. Last year when Logano was in a slump neither race was good for him. Last fall he was caught up in the “Big One” and finished 21st. I’ll not he never really ran well anyways. In spring 2017 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. From the race it should be noted he finished 10th in Stage #2. In fall 2016 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 was taken out in a wreck. In the four races prior to that he had results of 1st, 5th, 1st, 4th and 4th.
