NASCAR heads to Kentucky this week for its Quaker State 400, as they return to intermediate-track racing to take on a perilous 1.5-mile trail at Kentucky Speedway.
Martin Truex Jr. has tons of success on intermediate paths in the last few decades, as has been well documented, and he will be looking to defend his name in Kentucky Saturday at 7:30 p.m. on NBCSN.
Truex has been quite good since the re-pave at 2016 in two runs at Kentucky and has had success this season with two wins, three runners-up finishes and seven top 5s in his last eight races. He’ll be the man to overcome.
Brad Keselowski holds the next driver evaluation in Kentucky Speedway and won the 2016 race. Additionally, he has three 5s, three wins and five top 10s on the monitor.
Of course Kyle Busch will probably be lurking more. He’s got the very same odds as Truex to win at 7/2, but he boasts the best driver rating at 125.6 and has just two wins to back up his achievement with an average end of 5.1 in his livelihood.
Busch will be extra, after getting caught up at Daytona a week along with Keselowski at the wrecks and he is exactly who we’re picking to win.
