Defending race winner Christopher Bell is the favorite for a repeat.

The Joe Gibbs driver has a great record at the track.

Bell has only missed out on the top 5 once in four career starts at the track.

He is a two-time winner at Kentucky, having done it once in the Truck Series and once in Xfinity.

Bell's only result outside the top 5 was in his second ever start in one of NASCAR's national series.

The Joe Gibbs driver dropped won to third in the standings following a disqualification at Chicago.

Still, Bell's four wins are tied for the series' lead.

He has eight top 5 and nine top 10 finishes in 15 races this year.

Tyler Reddick

Tyler Reddick joins Bell as the other active driver to have won at Kentucky in the Xfinity Series.

The reigning champion's first ever win in the Xfinity series came at the track as a part-time driver in 2017.

The Richard Childress driver has never finished outside the top 10 at the track.

Reddick has one win and five top 10 results in five starts at Kentucky.

He has the worst finish of tenth in three Xfinity Series starts at the track.

Reddick is coming off what was arguably his worst race this season.

He finished a distant ninth at Chicago last weekend and was never a factor.

However, his ten consecutive top 5 finishes earlier this season will always make him one of the favorites.

The 2018 champion leads the points, having scored three wins and a series-leading 11 top 5 finishes in 15 starts.

Cole Custer

Cole Custer tied Christopher Bell with his fourth win of 2019.

Custer scored a convincing win at Chicago, holding off reigning Cup Series champion Joey Logano.

He will now try to repeat the result at Kentucky.

The Stewart-Haas driver is coming off back-to-back top 5 finishes at the 1.5-mile oval.

Custer started last year's race from the pole and finished fifth.

In great form this season, #98 is second in points, having scored nine top 5 and ten top 10 finishes in 15 races.

Austin Cindric continues to chase after his first win in the Xfinity Series.

The sophomore driver has stepped up this season when it comes to consistency.

On the other hand, a race victory continues to elude him.

Cindric has only missed out on the top 10 twice in his last ten starts.

Kentucky could be the place for his first win.

The Team Penske driver's only win at an oval came at Kentucky.

Cindric took the checkered flag there in the ARCA series back in 2016.

He is fifth in points, having scored four top 5 finishes.

His 12 top 10 results are the second best in the series, behind Tyler Reddick.

If you are looking for a good underdog pick, then Michael Annett could be an option.

After kicking off the year with his first career victory, Annett's performance dropped off a bit.

The Xfinity Series veteran is picking up his pace again, however.

The JR Motorsports driver is coming off six consecutive top 10 finishes.

Annett is coming off a solid third place at Chicago, another cookie-cutter 1.5-mile oval similar to Kentucky.

This weekend's track is arguably his best 1.5-mile oval as well.

Annett's first top 10 finish came at Kentucky, the seventh place during his rookie season back in 2009.

His first top 5 finish also came at the track, the fourth place in 2012.

Michael Annett has one top 5 and five top 10 finishes in ten starts at Kentucky.

He also has two top 5 results at the track in two starts outside the Xfinity Series.

The JR Motorsports driver is currently ninth in points, having scored one win, four top 5 and ten top 10 finishes in 15 races.
