Here’s who NBC’s writers think will win today’s race at Kansas Speedway (2 p.m. ET on NBC).

Dustin Long

Kevin Harvick. The Big 3 returns to dominance.

Nate Ryan

Kyle Larson. He likely will need a lot of luck to win in a backup car. But good fortune was a big part of his Round of 16 run at Las Vegas and the Roval, and it continues here.

Daniel McFadin

Ryan Blaney gets career win No. 3 with his first victory on a 1.5-mile track.

Dan Beaver

The Big 3 have lost some of their dominance, but part of the reason for that was a tire failure at Vegas for Kevin Harvick. He avoids trouble this week and returns to victory lane.
