NASCAR at Kentucky: TV schedule, lineup, qualifying drivers for Quaker State 400

Sporting News — (Thomas Lott)

So last week was weird. Justin Haley won his first race in his third career start after rain shortened the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

This week should be a little more predictable as drivers head to the 1.5-mile track in Kentucky where Martin Truex Jr. has won two straight races.

He will be one of the favorites to win again this week especially considering his four wins already this year — including one at an intermediate track in Charlotte — in addition to his past success at Kentucky.

This week will likely feature the usual suspects as Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski and Erik Jones will all probably factor into the top 10.

It's just a matter of who will win this week. But one thing is for sure, everyone is chasing Truex.
