Early Rankings: Kansas II, 2013

  • the loop data for the past four races;
  • the loop data for the past four races at Kansas;
  • the loop data for the past seven races at other tracks in the Large Ovals track group (i.e., MichiganKentuckyFontanaCharlotteTexasAtlanta and Chicagoland);
  • the practice and qualifying data for the past four races at Kansas; and
