NASCAR heads back to a short track this week at the 0.75-mile Richmond Raceway.

Brad Keselowski is on fire heading into the second race of the playoffs having won the last three races and moving into first place in the points standings. He will be in position once again to compete for a win as he has four top-10 finishes in his last six trips to Richmond and has not finished lower than 11th in those runs on the D-shaped oval.

Kyle Busch is coming off a somewhat disappointing seventh-place finish in Las Vegas but will be looking to add to his six wins this season in Richmond. Busch won in Virginia in the first race this season and has five top 10s of his own in his last six starts on the track.

The Federated Auto Parts 400 can be seen at 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN.
