Defending Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski enters the second weekend of the season firmly inside the top five in points.

Keselowski was able to race his way to a fourth-place finish in the Daytona 500 despite a car that was involved in several incidents. This was a result of a "never say die" attitude by the Miller Lite Ford team. Both the primary and backup cars are brand new chassis for Phoenix.-Penske Racing

An accident at Texas Motor Speedway this April snapped a 56-race streak in which Greg Biffle had been running at the end of every race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He finished 14th in that event. This streak extended all the way back to the 2010 season and he won the Price Chopper 400 by Kraft Foods at Kansas Speedway in October of that year.

That was even more disappointing because he entered the weekend with three consecutive top-20s at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Texas last spring. He was banged about last week at Talladega as well, so it is difficult to predict a momentum shift.

Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano were both involved in the same late-race accident at Talladega SuperSpeedway that ended their day, but it was not their first contact on the track. While trying to bump-draft the No. 20, Logano knocked Kenseth off course and the two argued about the incident outside of the care center.

Rewind to last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400 and Logano’s bump on Kenseth that effectively ended his Chase hopes. That storyline will be front-of-mind this week and could trigger further retaliation between a pair of drivers with bad blood. Logano is undoubtedly still stinging over the Martinsville Speedway wreck that ended his Chase. Neither driver is a safe bet in the upcoming GoBowling.com 400.

Ryan Blaney led the field at Talladega SuperSpeedway in one category last week: He made 817 green flag passes during the afternoon, which equated to more than 5.5 cars per lap during the 147 green flag laps around the circuit. Green flag passes are counted in multiple locations around the track at scoring loops. He ended the day ninth.

Blaney earned a lot of experience in that race in route to a top-10 finish and will be a better value once the series returns there in the fall. His high number of passes means that he was in heavy traffic all afternoon. The next closest competitor in this regard was Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with 653 green flag passes.

Making only his sixth career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start, Rico Abreu (#98 Safelite/CURB Records Toyota Tundra) will make his Kansas Speedway debut in Friday's 167-lap event at the 1.5-mile track.

In Abreu's intermediate track debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this season, he started 27th and finished 11th. The team will utilize chassis No. 45 for Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas; the same chassis Johnny Sauter piloted in 2015 to four top-10 finishes, including two fourth-place finishes at Texas (June), and Michigan.-ThorSport Racing

Among active series drivers, Matt Crafton (#88 Ideal Door/Menards Toyota Tundra) is the only NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver to compete in all 15 events at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.

The two-time champion was the first repeat Truck Series winner, finding victory lane in 2013 and 2015, and he is tied with Johnny Sauter for the most top-five finishes (4), has the most top-10 finishes (7), has completed more laps (2406), and has the most lead lap finishes (9).

Ben Rhodes (#41 Operation BBQ Relief/Alpha Energy Solutions Toyota Tundra) will make his Kansas Speedway debut in Friday night's 167 lap event.

In Rhodes' intermediate track debut earlier this season, the Louisville, Kentucky native started seventh and finished sixth at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The No. 41 ThorSport Racing team will utilize chassis No. 53 for Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway. This is the same chassis that Rhodes piloted at Atlanta.-ThorSport Racing

In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' last stop at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway, Cameron Hayley started eighth, and brought home his first career NCWTS top-five finish, finishing fifth.

The No. 13 ThorSport Racing team will utilize chassis No. 35 for Friday's Toyota Tundra 250. This is the same chassis that teammate Matt Crafton won with at Kansas in 2015, after starting second. Last Race - Martinsville Speedway... Making his third career start at Martinsville, Hayley started fourth, led the field once for 11 laps, and finished ninth.-ThorSport Racing

AquaStar, a leader in branded seafood for more than 25 years, will sponsor the Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE) No. 81 Toyota driven by Ryan Truex for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event, the Toyota Tundra 250, Friday, May 6 at Kansas Speedway.

Truex won back-to-back K&N Pro Series East Championships in 2009 and 2010. The 2009 campaign also earned him the Rookie of the Year honors and gave Michael Waltrip Racing its first NASCAR championship. Truex became only the second driver in series history to win both honors in the same year, after only Joey Logano. He is currently competing for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship piloting the #81 HRE Toyota. The team finished second at the season opener at Daytona and is currently tied for 5th in the series point standings.-HRE

Kasey Kahne does not have a lot of success in 2016, but what little does have was earned on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He enters the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway with back-to-back top-10s at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.

Given his inconsistency, he could fly under the radar this week. If that happens, he could be one of the best differentiators in a player’s lineup. Do not start him unless he starts in the front half of the field, however.

Ryan Blaney has earned five NASCAR Sprint Cup top-10s in his career and two of those came on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. One of his top results was earned last October when he finished seventh in the Hollywood Casino 400 after starting eighth.

His other top-10 on this track type came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this spring from a 14th-place starting position, so qualification and practice will be critical in helping fantasy owners decide whether to start the No. 21. Be aware, however, that he faded from seventh to 29th one month ago at Texas.

Clint Bowyer earned his second top-10 in the last three races by finishing seventh at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He was also eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway and those two top-10s could give the No. 15 team the momentum needed to score their first top-20 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track this season.

Bowyer came close with a 22nd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March and needs only a little nudge to get those extra two spots. That was the only time in three races on this track type in 2016 that he finished on the same lap as the leaders.
