The Sprint Cup Series makes its fourth visit to Kentucky Speedway, with both Ford and Chevrolet still looking to get the winners' circle for the first time. Joe Gibbs Toyotas have won here twice but one Chevy driver stands out as the most likely to get his manufacturer on the board: Jimmie Johnson led 182 laps in the 2013 race, has top-10 finishes in all 3 races at Kentucky, and leads all drivers with a Driver Rating of 125.9 which means he's generally had a car capable of running out front.
