1. #41 Kurt Busch. Fastest car in practice. Fastest in qualifying. You do the math.
2. #4 Kevin Harvick. He can probably get three in a row.
3. #20 Matt Kenseth. He’s fast and Toyotas are good here.
Guys To Watch
1. #14 Tony Stewart. Can he get something together.
2. #24 Jeff Gordon. Can he win in his home state.
3. #11 Denny Hamlin. Can he have better luck at California than he has had the last couple seasons?
