Don’t overlook Kurt Busch this season. Sure, the 2004 Cup champion has shifted to a smaller team, but Phoenix Racing has long been a factor at restrictor-plate tracks and brings a more in-depth, supported effort to the track this season. Busch, meanwhile, has something to prove after an offseason split with the powerful Penske operation. The combination will be potent. Busch will be in Victory Lane this year – and not just to shake his winning brother’s hand. —Lee Spencer and Rea White
