NASCAR Pre-Race Media: Top 5 sleepers for Sunday’s Quaker State 400 (3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, PRN)

With an aged track and multiple grooves to race on, we could see an upset winner on the 1.54-mile track. While it’s going to be hard to top the usual contenders, don’t sleep on these drivers if so.

Kurt Busch

He is a former winner (2009, 2010) and despite crashing and finishing last back in March, he’s had a ton of success lately in Atlanta. Busch, has five top eight finishes in his last six starts on the track and nine in his last 12 starts. Other than March, his worst finish since 2010 in Atlanta is 13th. He was third in 2019 and sixth a year ago.

Christopher Bell 

Why not here? Bell, was third and first respectively on this very race track in his two Xfinity Series starts on it. He won the Truck Series race in 2017 too. Because he was outside the top 20 in March is why he’s getting these odds.

Alex Bowman

He was third in March and great on aged tracks. I like this as a potential winner.

Chris Buescher

He’s great on 550 tracks, was in a top 10 for most of the day in Homestead, finished seventh in March and should hang around on Sunday.

Tyler Reddick

Atlanta will look like Homestead and Reddick is great there. He finished runner-up at Homestead in March but only 26th in Atlanta after. I think he rebounds.
