Comments: NASCAR Picks for Kansas

The Cup Series heads back to Kansas Speedway this weekend for race No. 4 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Little has changed over the first three races of the playoffs as Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch continue a three-way fight for the top spot, while the gap back to fourth place stands at 39 points. If it wasn't already apparent following the regular season, the Chase has provided definitive proof that Kenseth, Johnson and Busch are the class of the Cup Series this season. For fantasy owners that are currently leading their leagues, there is no reason not to ride the trio over the final seven races in an attempt to secure a title as the drivers do the same.

Of course, things are a little trickier for fantasy owners that need to try to gain ground. As the rest of the Chasers have found out, gaining ground is tough when the three drivers they are Chasing are finishing in the top five every week; fantasy owners face a similar issue. While it is obvious who most owners will be using, picking the same drivers as the frontrunners isn't going to help track down the league leaders. For those trying to make one last push for a fantasy title, it is time to get a little desperate and to start taking chances, and what better place to start than at a Kansas track that has produced some of the wildest moments in Chase history, including a Joe Nemechek victory.
