My #5 driver to watch has won here before, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad won the Cup race here last year. Brad has also won in the Nationwide Series and is running all three races here to get a little more track experience. Brad comes in here 21st Hottest over the last six weeks, and he needs to turn things around quick. And there’s nothing like returning to a track where you are a defending champion to do it.


The #4 driver to watch won here in the Camping World Truck series, the Nationwide series, AND was the first driver to win here in the Sprint Cup series, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle won Kentucky Speedway’s debut Sprint Cup race and finished 10th here last year. Like Brad, Kyle will also be running all three races here this weekend.



My #3 driver to watch is very good on track like this, #20 Matt Kenseth. Matt has a 6th and 7th place finish here. He is #2 ranked on tracks like this, but is currently racing 16th hottest over the last six weeks, so like Brad he is happy to be here.


My #2 driver has never won here in any series, #29 Kevin Harvick. Kevin has not only never won any race here, he has never even had a Top 10 in the two Cup series races. Kevin IS however having a great season, he sits 4th in points, and he is #1 hottest driver over the last six weeks. His hot streak should continue here in the bluegrass state.


My #1 driver has also won here both in the Nationwide Series and the Camping World Truck Series, #99 Carl Edwards. Carl is ranked #1 best on Down Force Tracks like this and finished 5th in his first visit here.


Monday look for our preview of the COKE ZERO 400 from Daytona.
