2013 Kentucky: NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

Tonight will be the third Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. The 2011 debut was the first new NASCAR Sprint Cup track since 2001. Kentucky Speedway hosted 11 NASCAR Nationwide races since it was built back in 2000 before the Cup cars started racing.

Kentucky Speedway is a 1.5-mile tri-oval with a medium 14 degree banking in the turns. The 1662 foot frontstretch is banked at 8 degrees with the slightly shorter - 1600 feet - backstretch banked at four degrees. If all the seats are full this evening, 107,000 NASCAR Sprint Cup fans will line the track.

Overall, Kentucky is the 9th NASCAR Sprint Cup track added since 1993.

Kyle Busch won the inaugural event from Pole. Brad Keselowski won last year's visit after starting 8th.

Unfortunately no driver has finished in the top-five during both events, so we won't be able to use that to guide our pick for today.

We could make a case that Joey Logano should be one driver to watch closely. Logano has won the NASCAR Nationwide race at Kentucky three times (2008, 2009, 2010). We'll note that all three of Logano's victories came from Pole.

As did Austin Dillon's NASCAR Nationwide in 2012. Last night, Brad Keselowski won from 19th.

In the NASCAR Sprint Cup series four drivers have multiple wins thus far in 2013: Jimmie Johnson (3), Matt Kenseth (3), Kyle Busch (2), and Kevin Harvick (2).

Thus, we'll go with our best trend, that the Pole sitter has won seven of the 16 NASCAR car races at this track... Hello, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Should he fail to visit victory lane, keep an eye on Brad Keselowski based on his previous Cup win, and his success last night in the Nationwide race.

It should be an interesting race. Enjoy!
