The banking in all four corners varies from 17-20 degrees. There is 10 degrees of banking on the front stretch and 5 degrees on the backstretch. Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart lead all drivers with two wins each at Kansas. Gordon has the most top-five finish with eight at this track, while Johnson 11 top-10 finishes is tops among all drivers.

Greg Biffle 8-1

Biffle has the best average finish at Kansas. In 11 starts here, Biffle has two wins and recorded eight top-10s. His average finish is 8.3. The Roush-Fenway Fords own the best average finish at Kansas of any organization. He's a lock to finish in the top five. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Biffle is 8-1 to win on Sunday.

Jeff Gordon 12-1

Gordon has struggled this year though he's coming off a top five at Texas last week. He's performed very well at Kansas, in the past. Last fall, he was heading towards the top five until his engine blew and he ended up at finishing 34th. Before that rough finish, he had a string of five-straight top five finishes and won twice at the track in 2002 and 2001.

Long Shot

Kurt Busch

His brother Kyle won last week. He has finished ninth at Fontana and 13th last week in Texas in two intermediate races. Kurt sat on the pole last season at this even and led a race-high 152 laps en route to a solid 9th-place finish. Busch followed up with a 13th-place finish here last fall. He has finished in 13th or better in five of his last six events here.
