Brad Keselowski believes that Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin are locked in for the Championship 4 and only two spots are open for grab.

Harvick and Hamlin dominated the regular season. They have continued to show their excellence in the postseason too.

As NASCAR heads to Kansas Speedway for the 2020 Cup Playoffs Round of 8 race, Harvick leads the standings with 67 playoff points. Hamlin is on second with 54 points.

Keselowski who is third in the standings believes that the two drives will make it to the Championship 4.

“It feels that way,” said Brad Keselowski. “Yeah, it feels that way.”

However, the driver has not given up hope on catching Hamlin in this round.

“Denny is not completely out of my reach. He’s 19 points in front of me. … So I think I’ve got a shot at legitimately racing him on points, but probably the others don’t. With respect to that, I think Kevin’s a pretty good ways away from everybody.”

The races in the last round, at Talladega and the Charlotte Roval, were seen as wildcard races. However, Keselowski

“In some ways, it’s less stressful because you feel like you can control more of your own destiny. You can never control all of it, but more of it. That said, there are some really good teams, really good performers. The other side I guess if you’re playing devil’s advocate … ‘Hey, I’m really going to have to step up and deliver in this round because nothing by chance is going to work in my favor.’ So the rounds certainly have different feels to them.”
