2020 Kentucky Speedway, Quaker State 400

Looks like Kevin Harvick is on a roll. At least on the flat tracks as he won for the second time in the last three races on a relatively flat track. Can he keep his momentum going this week, or will one of the other teams come away with the victory?

QUAKER STATE 400

This week the series heads to the Kentucky Speedway for the running of the Quaker State 400. This is another of the mile and a half tracks on the schedule. Once again this track has mostly been dominated by the Joe Gibbs drivers lately and we’ll see if they can take some of Harvick’s momentum away from him.

Martin Truex Jr.: Martin has won two of the last three races here and in those races he also swept the stages. I’m going to pick him to be the driver to come away with the win and slow down Kevin’s run here a little bit. He has been very good on this type of track over the past three plus seasons coming away with more wins on the mile and a half tracks than any other driver in that stretch.

Kyle Busch: In nine career starts at Kentucky, Kyle’s worst finish has been twelfth. He has two wins, finished second here last year and has seven top five finishes in those nine races. He is the most consistent driver at this track of all the active drivers on the circuit. He is a good choice to have on your roster this weekend.

Joey Logano: Joey has six top ten finishes in his last seven starts here and has lead laps in five of those races. He has run even better this year with Paul Wolfe as his crew chief and it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see him pick up a win this weekend. I think this team will be happy to get back to this type of track.

Brad Keselowski: Brad leads all drivers with three overall wins at this track and he has run very well here in the Xfinity series too. He has six top ten finishes in the nine races he has run here and has lead laps in seven of those races. This guy really knows how to get around this place and would be a good option for this weekend.

Kevin Harvick: This hasn’t been one of his best tracks, but he still runs pretty well here. He is still looking for his first win at this track and has only finished in the top five one time in his nine starts. However, he has finished in the top ten in six of those races and has only finished outside of the top twenty once.

Matt Kenseth: Matt came close to picking up the victory last week at Indy and this team could be on the verge of making that next step and visiting victory lane. Matt has one win at Kentucky and has finished in the top ten in six of his eight career starts here. He is very good on this type of track.

Erik Jones: Erik hasn’t had the greatest of years and is still looking for the consistency he needs to keep his job. In his three career starts at Kentucky, Erik has finished in the top ten in every race. His best finish came last season when he came away with the third finishing position. Is this the weekend he breaks out this year?

Kurt Busch: Kurt won this race last year and has finished in the top ten in six of his nine starts at this track. This team has run pretty well so far this season and I think that having Matt Kenseth as a teammate now really helps him. These two have been teammates before and they know how to share information with each other.

Ryan Blaney: Ryan finished second here two years ago and has been running very well this season. I think he should be very good here this weekend as his Penske teammates mentioned above are both very good here too. I think he should be able to pick up some of the things the other two are doing to get around this track even better.

Man you nailed it last week. I had the 4 11 42 running 1 2 3 and was winning big money until the 11 hit the wall. Keep up the great work!

The 24 hasn’t done anything this year to make me believe in him. I go with the 14.

Yeah, he could be good here too. Just hasn’t shown it in the past, but that was then and this is now.

Our Group C looks a lot different than most, who have would you pick out of these:
34, 38, 47 & 3
Rank them if you could🙏

I would have to go with Elliott. He has been more consistent this season.

The 8 has been good on this type of track where the 95 has been better on the flatter tracks. Go with the 8.

No, this has very little effect especially when there was no practice or qualifying anyway.

Custer hasn’t done anything to draw my attention this year. Nemechek has had some promising races. I like Reddick better here though.

I am starting the 42. Being at the back early in this race doesn’t mean much. There was no practice or qualifying. Maybe the car is better now.
