Through the first 10 races there have been eight different winners. Below you will find the top-five paint schemes from this weekend’s race.

No. 5 – Ty Dillon (No. 33 Plankton Chevy)

Dillon will be one of four drivers taking advantage of the SpongeBob sponsorship this weekend in Kansas. In the world of SpongeBob, Plankton is always foiled from having success so Dillon will have to hope that doesn’t happen to him. Dillon will be looking for a solid run this weekend and one would have to imagine that a top-20 finish would be considered a success.

No. 4 – Jeff Gordon (No. 24 Red Cross Chevy)

3M and the American Red Cross have been partnering for eight NASCAR seasons now. In the past this combination has run with Greg Biffle and the No. 16 machine. With 3M moving to the No. 24 team in 2015, Gordon will now run the Red Cross paint scheme this season. Not only is Gordon running the #SleevesUp scheme but he is also trying to reach a personal donors goal. Gordon is trying to get 400 people to donate blood, if you would like to be one of those people you can sign up by visiting Gordon is coming off of his first non-top-10 finish in almost two months, he will be looking to get back into the top-10 this weekend.

No. 3 – Casey Mears (No. 13 Squidward Chevy)

It’s not too often that Casey Mears makes his list but this weekend his Squidward paint scheme gets him onto the list. 2015 has not been the season that Mears and the No. 13 have been looking for. Earlier in the season Mears was in the top-15 in the point standings, he has since fallen to 21st which is where he sits heading into Kansas. Much like Dillon, a top-20 will go a long way for Mears and his team this weekend.

No. 2 – Erik Jones (No. 18 Red Nose Day Toyota)

Jones will run a cool Red Nose Day paint scheme this weekend. Red Nose Day is something that was started in the UK and is coming to the United States on May 21st this year. Red Nose Day is a cause that raises money for various children’s charities, the US version will revolve around a show being put on by NBC that will feature various comedy and entertainment acts. As for Jones, he looked impressive on Friday. He won the truck pole and qualified 12th for the Sprint Cup race. If not for lack a fuel he would have won the truck race. Jones could be a solid top-15 car this weekend.

No. 1 – Greg Biffle (No. 16 Cheez-It/SpongeBob Ford)

Of all of the SpongeBob cars, Greg Biffle has the coolest one as he is driving the Patrick machine. Biffle has to be hoping that having Patrick on the hood will do something for him and his struggling race team. Biffle has not fared well this season but the early signs in Kansas are looking good. Biffle was fast in practice and qualifying on Friday and he will start the race in the 7th position. Biffle’s best finish in the last seven races is 17th and he only has one top-10 finish this season. Anything in the top-15 will be a step in the right direction for Biffle and the No. 16 team this weekend in Kansas.
