Kentucky: Three To Watch
Kentucky Speedway is a 1.5-mile intermediate track, but it certainly doesn't race like most of the other cookie cutters. The track has the reputation of being the bumpiest on the schedule to the point that track officials have made a joke out of it.
A recent TV commercial showed Joey Logano training for the Kentucky race by doing activities that caused him to shake like he was in an earthquake simulator. During the Media Tour this past winter, most drivers asked about the most essential item to bring to Kentucky quipped that it was a mouthguard. (And, no, they weren't joking about the necessity.)
Here's a look at three drivers that may or may not bump their way to victory this weekend:
Green Flag - Kyle Busch
He proved that he's 100% by navigating his way to victory at Sonoma Raceway, a track that tested his ability to use both lower extremities that he broke earlier in the season. He won the inaugural race at Kentucky in 2011 and has finished in the top-10 in all four starts at the track.
Yellow Flag - Brad Keselowski
He won from the pole in this race last year to pick up his second win in four starts at the track. He's been in a rut of late, however, as he hasn't finished in the top-five since Texas in early April, and has finished outside the top-10 in four of the last five races.
Red Flag - Jeff Gordon
He's swept the top-10 in all four races he's started at Kentucky, but never led so much as a lap in one of those races. Of bigger concern, however, is his recent performance. He's completed all but one lap in the last seven races and has only a single lap led. It's not bad luck, and that's disconcerting.
