NASCAR Speed Freaks: It's got to be Denny Hamlin's turn at Kansas, right?
Keselowski is checked off the list. Who's 2021's next first-time winner?
KEN'S CALL: Denny Hamlin has won two of the last three at Kansas and has been great all season, so he's the obvious choice, which means I'm going with Chase Elliott.
DEAN'S DIRT: This is Denny's week. I picked him, which means he'll blow an engine on the warm-up lap.
In case you missed it:Brad Keselowski wins at Talladega again, tying Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon
Are the two Ganassi teams doomed for 2021?
KEN'S CALL: The way Ross Chastain and Kurt Busch are running, you get the feeling Chip's guys are already pointing to 2022 and the Next Gen car. You could've assumed some adjustment time for Ross, but Kurt's woes point to deeper issues ... for now, anyway.
DEAN'S DIRT: Kurt will find a way to win a race or two over the summer. Ross The Boss, on the other hand, has been shockingly bad.
