The NASCAR postseason is upon us, with 16 drivers still remaining in contention for the first championship under the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series brand.
Martin Truex, last year’s winner at Chicagoland, is entering this weekend’s race as the front-runner to win for a second-straight year. While Truex is in good shape to do just that, why not consider a few other drivers that could bag you even better returns if they emerge victorious as well? As such, check out our select sleepers below for the 2017 Tales of the Turtles 400.

Former Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick has been hot and cold on the circuit this season. His latest performances at Chicagoland weren’t very impressive either, but he has shown in the past that he can conquer this week’s course.
Harvick won the first two Cup Series races that were held at Chicagoland and eight top-10 finishes in 16 career starts. He also has five top 10s in six starts on 1.5-mile tracks this season, meaning he could very well find himself back on the winner’s podium this Sunday.
It was only a couple of years ago when Denny Hamlin won at Chicagoland, and the 36-year-old has finished no worse than sixth on the track in his last three starts.
Hamlin’s also entering Sunday’s race with some great momentum. He has a couple of victories and a total of seven top-5 finishes over the last nine races of the season.
After receiving a bout of bad luck last week at Richmond by way of a strange run-in with an ambulance, perhaps fortune will favor Matt Kenseth this coming Sunday.
That goes without saying that Kenseth is certainly capable of winning at Chicagoland on his own skill. Beginning with his win on the track in 2013, The Joe Gibbs Racing contender has yet to finish outside the top 10 and with an average finish of 6.3 at that.
