The NASCAR Cup Series will be back in action this week and heading to Kansas Speedway, which produced a pair of surprising winners last season.

23XI Racing drivers Kurt Busch and Bubba Wallace swept the Kansas races in 2022, and while 23XI should be among the contenders to win. Hendrick Motorsports will be sure to be in the mix with their drivers having run very well on intermediate tracks so far this season.

We’ve got a balance of 23XI and Hendrick drivers for our ‘Fast Five’ picks to win, as well as a Ford driver that could be in a position to break through for his first win in 2023.

FAST FIVE PICKS

Chalk play

Tyler Reddick (+700 to win)

Reddick led laps at Kansas last season and didn’t have the results to show for it, but he’s in an even better position now that he’s with the 23XI Racing team that won last season’s race here with Kurt Busch. Speed won’t be an issue for Reddick, so he should be among the leaders all day and be a prime contender for the win assuming he can keep his car off the wall.

Trending up

Chase Elliott (+1200 to win)

Elliott’s had plenty of success here at Kansas throughout his career having recorded a win and eight top 10s in 14 starts, and he’s in dire need of a win after missing multiple races due to injury. This could be the recipe Elliott needs to get back into championship contention, as he’s performed well enough since his return to give us confidence that he can break through.

Best value

Bubba Wallace (+1500 to win)

There were questions about if Wallace was capable of winning at a track that wasn’t a superspeedway, but he proved the doubters wrong by winning the fall race here at Kansas and did it in a convincing fashion. While Wallace hasn’t shown the same level of performance that he flashed down the stretch in 2022, this is a prime opportunity for him to turn things around and offers solid value at 15-to-1.

Mid-pack play

Brad Keselowski (+3000 to win)

Keselowski has been one of the most improved Cup Series drivers from last season, and he’s shown especially strong speed at intermediate tracks. Keselowski’s a former Kansas winner, so he knows his way around here to where he might be on the cusp of recording his first win in over a year if he and his team can nail down the car setup like they’ve been doing throughout the season.

Longshot play

Josh Berry (+5000 to win)

Berry gets his second opportunity to fill in for Hendrick Motorsports after Alex Bowman suffered an injury during a sprint car race, and Bowman ran very well here at Kansas last season having led over 100 laps. Berry delivered some strong results while filling in for Elliott, so he’s a sneaky play again this week considering he’ll be in elite equipment as a 50-to-1 longshot.
