Advent Health 400 Preview: NASCAR Heads to Kansas

After a Sunday washout that forced NASCAR to postpone the race, it was Martin Truex Jr. who made the trip to Victory Lane at Dover for the Würth 400. From Delaware, NASCAR heads West to Kansas Speedway for the Advent Health 400. Will MTJ build momentum or can a new driver claim the checkered flag this Sunday? Let’s dive in!

As NASCAR gets set for the Summer stretch, teams will hope to build some momentum to set up for the playoffs. Kansas Speedway presents a fantastic opportunity for a team to set the tone for the year moving forward.

The 1.5-mile asphalt tri-oval speedway that opened in 2001 is exactly the kind of track that this NASCAR NextGen car has seemed to perform best on. This means we should get some excellent side-by-side racing when the Cup cars take the track. I’m expecting quite a bit of passing compared to some of the lackluster short-track racing we’ve seen thus far. Check out the entry list for the Advent Health 400 below.

Entry List

With Alex Bowman still recovering from his dirt track accident injury, Josh Berry sits back in the 48 this weekend getting some valuable NASCAR Cup Series seat time. Cup Series regulars make up the rest of the field.

23XI Racing swept the Kansas races last year so I expect both Tyler Reddick in the 45 and Bubba Wallace in the 23 to compete for the win in Kansas City. The Joe Gibbs Racing stable figures to be a factor on Sunday as well.

While weather and strategy could end up making this race a little less predictable, a Toyota should be the favorite among the manufacturers to score a win. From the Toyota camp, Christopher Bell is my pick.

However, were I a betting man, I’d be sure to keep an eye on Kyle Larson to play spoiler. Any time a track possesses an active high line, Larson will be a factor. Kansas Speedway’s high line figures to be very active on Sunday.
