2020 Kansas Speedway, Super Start Batteries 400

Congratulations to Austin Dillon for winning this week’s race at Texas!

SUPER START BATTERIES 400

Another short week as the series heads to the Kansas Speedway for the Thursday night running of the Super Start Batteries 400. Once again we are on a mile and a half track, but the temperatures should be much cooler than they were in Texas last week. That should equate to more grip, better handling and good speed.

Kevin Harvick: I’m going to stick with Kevin to win once again this week. He has been the most consistent in terms of speed over the past month and I don’t see anything changing this week. He has won three of his last thirteen starts at this track and he also finished second in three of those races. That is almost a top two finish in half of those races.

Martin Truex Jr.: Martin has won two of the last six races here and finished second in another. He has had some issues with an ill handling car early in races this year, but they always seem to get it handling great in plenty of time for Martin to get towards the front of the field and compete for the win. He should be one of Harvick’s biggest competitors this week.

Ryan Blaney: Ryan has also been very fast over the past month on this type of track. Right now he is the best of the Penske drivers and that is something seeing the other two have both won multiple times this season. He is still looking for his first win at Kansas, but he has really run well finishing in the top five in eight of the last twelve stages.

Chase Elliott: Chase isn’t running as well as he was two months ago when he was winning races. All-Star race the exception. However, this is a track where he has been very good lately and this might be just what this team needs to get back to the top of their game. Chase has one win and four top four finishes in his last five starts here.

Kyle Busch: Kyle hasn’t been where he wants to be this season, but he did run well at Texas last week. Kyle is so good he could break out at any time and go on a tear where he wins multiple races in a row. He has one win, seven top five, and nine top ten finishes in his last ten starts. Those are really good stats.

Denny Hamlin: Denny won the fall race at Kansas last year and after starting out with a very poor handling car at Texas last week they quickly made the right adjustments to become competitive again. He has also finished in the top five in three of his last five starts here. I think the Gibbs teams need to find a little more speed before the playoff starts.

Kurt Busch: Kurt has finished in the top ten in seven of his last ten starts at Kansas. That includes a top five and top ten in his races here last year in his first year with Chip Ganassi Racing. Those numbers should stay in tact once again this weekend with Kurt having another good run.

Brad Keselowski: Brad won the spring race here last season and is in one of those fast Penske cars. He’s another driver who hasn’t come away with the finishes he thinks he should have after winning a couple of races earlier this year. Once again here is another driver who can break out at any time and go on a spree of winning.

Sir, at one time there was a tab on this site that allowed me to look at the finishing position of each individual driver in each individual race of the current season. Does that still exist and if so how do I navigate to it? Thanks

Jeff- kind of stuck because usages are getting low for Harvick (5) Blaney (4). Do you think I should play them anyway tonight?
Right now here my picks: A – Elliot, B – bowman and Matty D, C – Bell

Our league is one A, two B and a C

The way Harvick and Blaney have been running lately it’s hard not to go with them. They might not run so great later in the season and those things happen. You also can take into account that with the pandemic the season could still be cut short.
