Just about everybody who rolled into Kansas Speedway this weekend still in contention for the Sprint Cup championship should be feeling good about their chances.
Brad Keselowski won at the track a few years ago. Matt Kenseth has two victories in the last five races there. Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick — Sunday's pole sitter — have all won at the fast, mile-and-a-half oval.
Then there's Kyle Busch. If there's anybody who should feel nervous about the three-race stretch that will pare the field to eight, it's the Joe Gibbs Racing driver.
Busch has crashed out of the Chase race the last two years at Kansas, and three of the last four races there overall. He hopes to reverse those fortunes on Sunday.
