Comments: NASCAR Picks for Kansas

For the second week in a row and the third time in 2013, the Cup Series will visit a 1.5-mile track this weekend. Kansas Speedway will be the site of Sunday's STP 400, and the track is one of the newer additions to the schedule. Kansas didn't host its first Cup race until 2001, and 2013 will mark just the third year that the track will host two events in the same season. That being said, Kansas has already played host to some bizarre moments and been instrumental in shaping several of the championship battles during the Chase. Of course, this weekend's race won't have serious title implications for the drivers, but the same can't be said for fantasy owners.

On the plus side, back-to-back trips to 1.5-mile tracks should give drivers that are running well the chance to stay hot. As a result, fantasy owners may not have to retool their lineups as much prior to Sunday's race as they normally would. With races at Richmond, Talladega and Darlington on the horizon, Sunday's race could be the calm before the storm.
