Let’s dive into the Digital Ally 400 Free Racing Picks for this Sunday.
Here are five drivers to back in Kansas
Kyle Busch +350
Where doesn’t Kyle Busch have some of the best odds when it comes to winning in NASCAR. Its a mile and a half, which seems to be one of Busch’s best type of tracks as he has been very successful throughout his career. Busch’s lone Kansas victory came in 2016, but he always puts up strong numbers at the track with six top five’s in the last eight Kansas races. Kyle has 10 top 10’s in his 22 career starts at the speedway. Busch hasn’t finished outside the top 10 at Kansas since May 2014, giving him eight straight top 10 finishes at Kansas. He was able to tie a long-standing record for top 10 finishes to start a season last weekend in Dover, for his 11th top 10 of the season, and should have a great shot in Kansas to at least break that record with his 12th straight top 10 finish if not competing for his fourth victory of 2019.
Martin Truex Jr +500
Martin Truex Jr looked unbeatable in the final 100 laps at Dover in last weekend’s race, as he raced his way to his second victory of the season, and second in the last three races. Truex Jr could have a great shot to make it back-to-back in the short week, as Kansas Speedway is a very good track for Martin. Martin is a two-time winner at Kansas, both victories came in 2017 the season he captured the series championship. Martin’s bread and butter seem to be mile and a half tracks. Four straight top-five finishes for Truex in the last four Kansas Races. Truex has nine top 10 finishes in 21 starts at Kansas Speedway. Truex has led 90 laps or more in four of the last eight races at Kansas.
Kevin Harvick +650
Kevin Harvick’s slow start to the season continued at Dover as he once again failed to find victory lane. He notched another top-five finish and will look to build on that in returning to a track he has been very good at. Harvick has three career victories at Kansas, and that includes two of the last five races at the track. His Kansas victory last May was part of back-to-back victories. Kevin has led a lot of laps at the Speedway lately as well having led double-digit laps in 10 of the last 11 Kansas races. He also has four poles in the last 11 Kansas races. Kansas seems like a good place for Harvick to finally find victory lane in 2019. A 12th place finish in the most recent race at Kansas was disappointing, but none the less Kevin Harvick should always be a contender especially on a mile and a half track.
Joey Logano +700
Joey Logano has seen the highs and lows at this track from his two victories between 2014 and 2015 to three DNF’s including two in the last six races at Kansas Speedway. Logano has three top 10s in his last six Kansas Starts including two third-place finishes. Logano was the pole sitter in the most recent trip to Kansas last fall and was able to lead 100 out of 267 laps in that event. Logano has been strong for most of the season posting a top 10 in all but one race so far this season along with a win at Las Vegas a track very similar to Kansas.
Chase Elliott +1000
A bit of a longshot, much like he was at Talladega two weeks ago, but we all know Chase Elliott is a driver to watch no matter what track NASCAR is at. Elliott won at Talladega and followed that up with a pole and top-five finish at Dover after leading the most laps. Chase is the most recent winner at Kansas, having won last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400. Elliott has two top-five finishes in the last three Kansas races. Elliott has three top 10 finishes at the Speedway in six career starts. Along with that, he has only started inside the top 10 once at Kansas. He has a worst finish of 31st at Kansas. Chase may be a bit of a long shot, but he should contend on Saturday night. As Chevy has looked strong in the last couple races this season.
