For us, I definitely feel like we’ve learned a lot the past month and half and really turned a corner there. That has given us a lot of confidence and we feel like Chicago will be a good race for us.”Among the favorites to spoil the Busch-Truex party at Chicagoland are their rivals from Team Penske, Logano and Keselowski. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick, who is still searching for his first win this season, also has a strong history at the track; he has more career top-five finishes (10) in Chicago than anybody in the field.
