Kansas Speedway hosts the first of its two yearly Cup Series visits.
Unlike the playoff round, the spring race is a Saturday night event.
This changes the race's complexity, as racing at night requires a different setup.
Take a look at who will be battling for the win at the 1.5-mile oval.

Favorites to Win the 2019 Digital Ally 400
With two wins over the last four races at Kansas, Martin Truex Jr. is the early favorite.
The 2017 champion has an impressive run of four consecutive top 5 finishes at the track.
Truex swept both races at Kansas on his way to the title two seasons ago.
His season has been a bit of a bumpy ride.
The driver of the #19 is still adapting following his move to Joe Gibbs from satellite operation Furniture Row.
Through 11 races this season, Truex has two wins, four top 5 and seven top 10 finishes.
Kevin Harvick is another solid pick.
The 2014 champion has six top 3 finishes at the track in 10 races with Stewart-Haas Racing.
Harvick is still looking for his first win of the season.
The driver of the #4 car has five top 5 and eight top 10 finishes through 11 races.
Chase Elliott is the most recent race winner at Kansas.
The Hendrick Motorsports has a win and another top 5 in the last three races at the track.
Elliott ended Chevrolet's 13 race drought by taking the checkered at Talladega.
The driver of the #9 car has three top 5 and four top 10 finishes this season.
Outside Picks for the 2019 Digital Ally 400
It might seem odd, but Kyle Busch is an outside pick for this race.
Kansas is arguably his worst track, with a single win and only ten top 10 finishes in 22 starts.
The 1.5-mile oval often brought his championship campaigns to an end in the playoffs.
His form has significantly improved over the last five seasons, however.
Busch scored eight consecutive top 10 finishes at Kansas, including his first victory, during that span.
The points leader has yet to finish outside the top 10 in 2019, with three wins and six top 5 results as well.
Ryan Blaney is another interesting choice.
The Team Penske driver has three top 5 and five top 10 finishes at Kansas in eight career starts.
Still winless this season, Blaney has four top 5 finishes in 11 races.
His teammates Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano should be in contention as well.
Keselowski has struggled at the track in recent years.
He won at Kansas in 2011 on his way to the championship.
The #2 however only scored four top 10 finishes over the last ten races at the 1.5-mile oval.
Logano had a good run going until his underwhelming 2017 season when he finished both races outside the top 20.
The #22 saw an impressive streak of five consecutive top 5 finishes, including two wins, come to an end.
The reigning champion finished third and eight at Kansas last season.
Logano has one win, six top 5 and eight top 10 finishes through 12 races in 2019.
