Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win tonight’s Cup race at Kentucky Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN).

Nate Ryan

Martin Truex Jr. picks up where he left off last season at Kentucky (though with less than the 15-second lead he held before the last restart).

Dustin Long

Martin Truex Jr. makes it two in a row at Kentucky.

Daniel McFadin

Four of seven Kentucky races have been won from the front row. Erik Jones adds to that number with his second consecutive win.

Dan Beaver

Kyle Busch thrives on controversy. That is going to fuel his third consecutive win on a 1.5-mile track (and his fourth in the last five races on this track type).
