Kasey Kahne 12-1

Few drivers are as hot as Kahne. He has four straight top-10 finishes. He placed second at Las Vegas (leading 114 laps) and won at Bristol. He has two top 10s in his last three Texas starts. He has a Hendrick car and engine, which never hurts.

Matt Kenseth 12-1

Kenseth is a Gibbs driver and this is his favorite type of track. Kenseth won the race here in 2011. He's scored five straight top five finishes at this track. He also led in 274 laps in those five races. He won in Las Vegas, which has a similar 1.5-mile oval last month. He also finished seventh in the 2-mile Auto Club speedway.

Long Shot

Brian Vickers 25-1

Vickers is filling in for the injured Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 car. He has never finished in the top 10 at Texas in 14 Cup starts here. But he has proved he can put a good car in the top 10.
