Kansas Speedway is one of the more wide open races on the 2013 Sprint Cup schedule. Several drivers have found their way to Victory Lane in a race that usually provides plenty of entertainment. While Sunday’s race may have that excitement, those making the odds have already caused some buzz that might change how fans watch on Sunday. Here’s why:
Favorite Flavor of the Month:
Jimmie Johnson loves this track and makes sense as a contender at 4/1. Matt Kenseth won at Kansas earlier this year but has just the 12th best average finishing position among active drivers here. Still, Kenseth is 7/2. This is a moderate surprise but makes sense considering Kenseth’s historic season.
But Kyle Busch at 6/1 is the most amazing number fans might see all year. Among active drivers, Busch is 31st in average finish at Kansas. Third on the board…31st based on history. The 2013 Sprint Cup must really be a three-horse race.
Roush Fenway Racing teams have a great history at Kansas. It might be Greg Biffle’s best track. Carl Edwards often find success. Even Ricky Stenhouse Jr. put together a good run.
Oddsmakers aren’t buying past history. Biffle and Edwards are 20/1. Even Brad Keselowski is 15/1 after finishing sixth at Kansas earlier this year. This may provide great value or prove to be a sucker play, but it’s a clear sign people in the know seem to think this isn’t the year for Ford.
Here are the latest numbers for the sake of entertainment and entertainment alone. Those in the know have made their predictions. Who do you think wins at Kansas on Sunday?
