The NASCAR circuit will be heading down to Kentucky this week and it is only the fourth time there will be a sprint Cup race on this track. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer much of a track record for drivers. So to help you pick your fantasy squad this week, here are five fantasy NASCAR predictions for the 2014 Quaker State 400.

These intermediate tracks always force the drivers to negotiate through a ton of traffic. It will be no different this weekend and there will be at least two wrecks, so make sure to plan accordingly.

4. Kevin Harvick Will Easily Crack The Top-10

Harvick has three straight top-16 finishes in Kentucky, including two straight top-10 finishes. He has always shown up down south and this week will be no different. Look for Harvick to easily crack the top-10 this Saturday.

3. Kasey Kahne Will Lead At Least Five Laps

Kahne has only led one lap in the three races in Kentucky, but he has still been a very productive fantasy option. He has three top-13 finishes in Kentucky and has an average finish of 8.67. Kahne will be near the front of the pack all race long and will find his way in front for at least five laps around the track.

2. Kyle Busch Will Not Finish The Race

Busch has seriously struggled this spring. He has finished outside of the top-40 in two of the last four races and is in the middle of a funk. The veteran is a threat to seriously not even finish the race in Kentucky on Saturday. Draft the M&M's car with caution this weekend.

1. Jeff Gordon Will Win It All

Gordon will be the heavy favorite to win it all this week. The Rainbow Warrior has three straight top-10 finishes on this track and he has an average finish of 7.67. Gordon has yet to record a win here, though, and this seems like the perfect week to put another trophy on his already crowded mantle.
