What to Watch For: Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Matt Kenseth, 11th and 12th on the Chase Grid respectively, essentially need a win to advance to the Eliminator 8 Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. … Jeff Gordon attempts to add to his track-record three wins at Kansas Speedway. Already assured a spot in the Eliminator 8 Round, Joey Logano tries to defend his fall Kansas win and visit Victory Lane for the second straight week. … If Harvick can finish within the top five in the final six races, he will tie Jeff Gordon’s record for most top fives in a modern era season – 26 in 1998. … Carl Edwards (Columbia, Mo), Clint Bowyer (Emporia, Kansas) and Jamie McMurray (Joplin, Mo.) all get to return to their roots this weekend by racing at their “hometrack.”
