The NASCAR playoffs continue to roll on as the circuit heads to Kansas Speedway on Sunday Oct. 20 for the Hollywood Casino 400. With only five races remaining in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, these races become more and more important by the week.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some drivers to keep an eye on when putting together your fantasy team this weekend.
Martin Truex Jr.
Martin Truex Jr. has performed well at Kansas Speedway lately, logging two wins in his last five races. Also in the same span, Truex has been able to grab four top-5 finishes. He has also led the second-most laps in those five races (208), turning in the third-highest driver rating of 108.6 with an average finish of 5.6.
Brad Keselowski has placed in the top 20 in each of his last five races at Kansas Speedway. He also has four top-5 finishes in that same span as well, with an average finish of 7.20. He has one win to his name in his last five races here, but has only lead for 56 laps, which is far lower than the other two names on this list. Still, Keselowski’s consistency here makes him more than worthwhile for top consideration.
Over his last five races at Kansas, Harvick has the best average starting position at 2.8, so don’t be surprised if you see him sitting atop the pole after qualifying later this weekend. He has been able to turn that into five top-20 finishes, three top-10 finishes, two top-5 finishes and one win in his last five starts at Kansas. Additionally, in his last five races at Kansas, Harvick has led the most laps (308) among all active drivers in Sunday’s contest.
