As the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series roars into Richmond International Raceway for Saturday night's Toyota Owners 400 (7 p.m. ET, FOX), here are the five drivers with the best chance of ending up in Victory Lane, starting with the driver least likely to get a win among the five.

5. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
He's a three-time Richmond winner, but NASCAR's most popular driver hasn't triumphed at the .75-mile short track since 2006 -- his final season with Dale Earnhardt Inc. The Hendrick Motorsports driver finished seventh and 12th, respectively, in last year's Richmond races.

4. Joey Logano
The Team Penske driver scored a breakthrough Richmond win last spring, going to Victory Lane for the first time in 11 tries at the D-shaped oval. The 2015 Daytona 500 champion has been stellar all season, aside from last Sunday's rain-delayed race at Bristol where he was involved in a costly early wreck with teammate Brad Keselowski.

3. Brad Keselowski
The 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion smoked the field last September at RIR, leading 383 of 400 laps en route to his first win here. Despite an early wreck last Sunday at Bristol, Keselowski has been stout in 2015 and that should continue under the lights this weekend.

2. Denny Hamlin
No driver covets wins at Richmond more than Denny Hamlin, who hails from nearby Chesterfield, Virginia, and considers the track virtually like a second home. With two wins here -- but none since 2010 -- the Joe Gibbs Racing driver is a favorite to get it done on Saturday night, and a lot of folks watching in the stands will be hoping he does just that.

1. Kevin Harvick
With his involvement in a wreck last Sunday at Bristol, Kevin Harvick proved he's human after all. But aside from that, the 2014 Sprint Cup champion has been almost unstoppable since the first race of the season. He owns three Richmond wins and has a terrific opportunity to nab a fourth, which would be his first at RIR with Stewart-Haas Racing.
