Thursday, July 23
After a 4-2 week in the Lone Star state NASCAR travels north to Kansas on a Thursday night for the Super Start Batteries 400. My overall record is an astonishing 46-20 and will do my best to somehow improve on that tremendous mark.
-125 Brad Keselowski over Joey Logano
Keselowski won here in NASCAR’s first race here last year. He also is third on the circuit in laps led this season with 611. Since February of 2017, (6 races at Kansas) Logano has registered just one top 5 finish and has led for just 9 total laps during that time.
-120 Alex Bowman over Kurt Busch
This track hasn’t been to kind to Kurt over the years and the 88 car is way overdue for a solid performance. Bowman has two top 10 finishes over the last three races in Kansas, and that includes scoring a 2nd place finish in the first race in 2019.
-115 Kyle Busch over Ryan Blaney
Blaney is another driver who has not had much success at this track lately. In Busch’s last three runs at this track he has a second and a third place finish. Busch also is third in NASCAR in top 5 finishes with eight.
Winning Car # 14.5
-190 Under 14.5
There are a lot of excellent drivers to have in this spot. We have seven of the top ten in cup points. That list includes the only drivers this season to have 600 or more points (Harvick leads with 721, Blaney, Keselowski, and Elliott). It also includes the #11 car of Denny Hamlin. Hamlin (defending champ and led for 153 laps) and Harvick have a combined 20 top 5 finishes and eight wins this season.
+115 Top 5 Finish Chase Elliott
Elliott is the favorite come Thursday night after his All-Star victory last Wednesday at Bristol. Elliott in his last six races here has a win and four top 5 finishes. His last three races in Kansas he has captured a first, second, and third place position.
+200 Martin Truex, Jr over Hamlin, Keselowski, and Logano
Over the last three years Truex has the most wins at intermediate racetracks with 10. Kevin Harvick is second.
