Kahne is always strong at the 1.5 mile tracks, and this weekend should be no different. I expect him to run strong under the lights and contend for the victory.
Vickers seems to run well at the 1.5 mile tracks, much like Kasey Kahne. Even though he hasn't raced at Kansas the past couple years, he should be strong. I see this as a chance for the Michael Waltrip Racing teams to get back on track.
Keselowski is hungry for his second win of the season, especially after last weekend's disastrous Talladega race. A win would go a long way to help everyone forget about Talladega, and I expect him to fight for his second victory of the season and wrap up his spot in the Chase.

Patrick seems to be turning a corner, and her finishes are showing a touch of improvement. I'm not saying she'll win the race, but maybe she can get a Top-20 out of the weekend.
