Kyle Larson has an excellent record in the event, as he has landed victory on two previous occasions. His most recent success came back in 2021, when the race was staged at Texas Motor Speedway. However, last seasonโ€™s winner was Ryan Blaney, who claimed a dramatic success after the longest edition of the All-Star Race.

Ross Chastain could have a leading chance this weekend, as the current leader in the Driversโ€™ Championship looks for a first victory this season. Despite sitting top of the standings, he is yet to land victory this term. However, he has finished on the podium on three previous occasions, with his best result coming when second in the Wurth 400.
