Hendrick looks to dominate Kansas
On the last corner of the last lap of this very race last year,
One of five intermediate "cookie-cutter" tracks in the last 10 races, Kansas is the sister track of Chicagoland with both venues making their Sprint Cup bow in the 2001 season. But with only 14 degrees of banking in the corners, as opposed to Texas and Charlotte with their 24 degrees for example, Kansas is a track where handling is even more crucial so expect the drivers that have shown their mettle all year to step up once again. And with that in mind, let's take a look at the favorites...
By the numbers: In the six years of the Chase the winner at Dover has never gone on to take the title.
By the numbers: Martin is one of only 13 current drivers to have raced in every event held at Kansas
By the numbers: Gordon has an average finish of 9.8 at Kansas in eight previous attempts.
By the numbers: Biffle has led laps in four of the last five races at Kansas.
By the numbers: Edwards' winless streak is now at 28 races. Sunday would be the perfect time to erase that statistic.
By the numbers: Busch has an average start of 20.6 and an average finish of 26.8 at Kansas
