Where going back to Kansas Toto, who can win one for Mom this weekend?
Pick #1- Kevin Harick 13/2 odds. He is starting on the pole, has been bad fast all weekend and won this race last year. I think it’s time for the 4 machine to get its first win of the season.
Pick #2 Kyle Busch 7/2 odds. His last 8 races at Kansas have an average finish of 5th including a win and still he has been the most consistent driver all year. Looking to break the all time top 10 streak to start a season
Pick #3 Clint Bowyer 20/1 odds. Home track time, Clint hasn’t been outside the top three in speed at all this week and the Stewart Haas cars locked out the first two rows, safe to say they’ve got speed.
Pick #4 Joey Logano 15/2 odds. Two wins, 7 top 5s and he has been a force at every 1.5 mile track we’ve gone to. Truthfully everywhere they’ve gone this year hes been the cream of the crop so look for the Penske team to be upfront after stage 1.
Pick #5 Alex Bowman 40/1 odds, my underdog pick. Coming off back to back second place finishes and having top 10 speed in all sessions this weekend makes you think maybe this team has figured something out and soon Alex is gonna break into that win column. In 3 starts in good equipment hes parked it inside the top 10 twice so it’s not like he doesnt know what hes doing in Kansas.
The Stewart Haas cars are fast, Hendrick seems to have found speed for the whole team, Ganassi should have both cars in the top 10 and Gibbs is still Gibbs. This is most likely the closest we’ve seen the entire competition all year and it looks to make a great Saturday night of racing in the Sunflower State.
