This Sunday, March 31, marks the latest running of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 race at Texas Motor Speedway. Following two wins in his last three races, Kyle Busch looks for his second straight first-place finish in this race as the favorite to win the 2019 O'Reilly Auto Parts 500.

Let's take a look at some drivers to watch out for when building your fantasy lineup for this Sunday's race.

Kyle Busch

It's pretty difficult to leave Kyle Busch off this list on any given week, given his incredible early dominance this season. It feels like Tiger Woods in his prime, when it seemed like the former No. 1 golfer in the world was winning a tournament every weekend. Busch has an average finish of 2.6 in his Monster Energy Series races this season. Busch has also placed in the Top 3 of four straight races, which includes two wins sandwiched between two third-place finishes.

Joey Logano

Logano had a disappointing run last week, finishing 19th in the STP 500, but he's seen a ton of success at this track in the past. Over his last 10 races at Texas Motor Speedway, Logano has eight Top-10 finishes and six Top-5 finishes. In his last seven races on this track, he has finished in the Top-3 spots four times.

Brad Keselowski

Keselowski is coming off a dominant win at Martinsville in the STP 500 last Sunday, as he looks to win back-to-back races with a first-place finish in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 this Sunday. Keselowski's also no slouch at this track historically either, with five Top-6 finishes in his last nine races at Texas Motor Speedway. Although, despite leading laps in a couple of starts here, he has never been able to take home the checkered flag. Keselowski remains a top play here based on his success this season and momentum coming into this race.
