The Buschy McBusch 400 has been an official NASCAR-sanctioned event since 2011. Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski are the only drivers to take more than one win. Other winners included Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr, and Kevin Harvick. In addition to them, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson also reached Victory Lane.

Truthfully speaking, Hamlin and Keselowski have a good chance of winning again at the track. However, Keselowski’s bid may be stronger, since he won at Talladega last weekend. On the other end of the scale, Denny Hamlin won last year’s edition of the race, so he should not be ruled out.

What to expect from the NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas?

As always, the fans can expect plenty of action at the Kansas Speedway. It is also worth noting that Brad Keselowski will likely start on pole position, on account of him winning the Cup Race at Talladega. Meanwhile, Hamlin will likely be on the back foot, especially after he crashed out at Talladega.

This snapped a brilliant run of finishing in the Top 5 on a consistent basis. On the bright side, Hamlin is still in the lead in the regular season championship. However, he has now got his wake-up call and will take care to not be complacent. Without a doubt, he knows that it is more important than ever to try and gun for that maiden 2021 win.

If he does so, not only will be improve his championship chances, but also be the 10th different winner. Keselowski’s Talladega win ensured that NASCAR had a ninth different winner. While the unpredictability is great, it will only make things harder to decide the Playoff order.
