- #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. You can’t bet against him here.
- #4 Kevin Harvick. He’s been close enough so many times.
- #48 Jimmie Johnson. It’s been a while since his last win. He’s hungry.
Guys to Watch
- Jeff Gordon. It’s his first full race as a commentator.
- #24 Chase Elliot. He’s on the pole, but being a rookie, how long til he gets sucked up into the general pack?
- #18 Kyle Busch. He (and Kurt for that matter) missed this race last year due to crazy circumstances. I think they will do fine.
