Matt Kenseth


Yes, Kenseth just won the last race, the New Hampshire 301, but a failed post-race inspection puts him in danger of losing points. Nevertheless, a win is a win and he’ll look to carry that momentum to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he finished inside the top ten twice in two races since 2014. Moreover, Kenseth has seven top sevens in 16 races, averaging 13.88 in finishes at Indianapolis since 1998.

Denny Hamlin

Hamlin has come on strong over the past few races, finishing with no worse than a 17th place in his last four outings. That stretch includes a ninth-place finish at New Hampshire last week and runner-up campaign at the Sonoma Raceway last month. Hamlin is chasing an elusive win at Indianapolis with zero wins in 10 races at the track since 2005. That being said, he has three top 5’s and five top 10’s during in those races, suggesting a strong possibility for Hamlin to emerge victorious this coming Sunday.

Carl Edwards

Edwards has been quite the inconsistent driver of late. After finishing sixth at FireKeepers Casino in June, Edwards went 25th at the Coke Zero 400. Then he finished second at Kentucky before having another top 20 campaign in New Hampshire. Despite his boom or bust nature, Edwards remains an attractive option for those looking for value.
