Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win tonight’s NASCAR Cup race at Kansas Speedway.

Nate Ryan

Kyle BuschI feel less certain about his chances in this race than at any point during this crusade. Which probably means he will score a surprise breakthrough.

Dustin Long

Martin Truex Jr. completes the task he failed to do at this track in this event last year.

Daniel McFadin

Kyle Larson continues establishing himself with a standout day on an intermediate track.

Jerry Bonkowski

Youth will be served in Saturday night’s race. I’m picking Chase Elliott to win, but also watch out for Ryan Blaney. It could be an exciting 1-2 finish between those two young guns.
