Event Preview

The AdventHealth 400 makes up the next stage of the NASCAR Cup Series this term. This race will see drivers compete over 400.5 miles at Kansas Speedway, and it has been a part of the schedule since 2011. The first two stages will consist of 80 laps apiece, while the final 107 laps are competed in the final stage to complete the 267-lap distance.

Kurt Busch won the race for the first time last season, which also marked the third straight year in which Toyota had been the winning manufacturer. Kyle Busch is tied for the most race wins in the event, with Brad Keselowski also landing two race wins during his career.

Kyle Larson once again leads the betting for the race this weekend, just as he did for the Wurth 400 last weekend. However, last weekend was a disappointing outing for the former champion, as he finished down in 32nd, marking the second straight weekend that he had finished outside the top 20. Martin Truex Jr landed victory in last weekendโ€™s race, which was his first victory of the season.

Kyle Busch could be a hard driver to avoid this weekend, as he has already landed two victories on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule this term. Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin and Christopher Bell have both been driving very consistently over the opening months of the season.

NASCAR 2023: AdventHealth 400 Predictions

This appears to be another testing race to call this weekend, with a number of drivers having leading chances. However, we are prepared to take a chance on Kyle Busch. He has been driving to a high standard this term, and he looks primed for a bold bid at a track that he thoroughly enjoys.
