Travis Kvapil (pronounced kwah-pil) (born March 1, 1976 in Janesville, Wisconsin) is an American race car driver. He most recently drove the #28 Ford Fusion for Yates Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Kvapil began racing at the age of 16 at Rockford Speedway in 1992 by competing in the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series. Kvapil won the American Short Tracker division track championship in 1994 at Rockford. He then moved up to super late models at Madison International Speedway in 1995 and was the track Rookie of the Year. He also became the track's Late Model champion a year later in 1996. Soon there after, Kvapil moved up to the ARCA RE/MAX Series. He finished in the tenth and fourth spots in the series' point standings in 1999 and 2000, respectively.

In 2001, Kvapil made his debut in the Craftsman Truck Series driving for Addington Racing in their #60 Chevrolet, sponsored by CAT Rental Stores. In his twenty-first start, right before the season concluded, at Texas Motor Speedway, he won his first Truck Series race in the Silverado 350. Once the 2001 NASCAR Season had finished, his eighteen top-10s contributed him to a fourth place in the driver standings. He was also awarded as the Craftsman Truck Series Rookie of the Year. For the next season, in 2002, Kvapil managed to match his win total, from the previous season, by winning the O'Reilly Auto Parts 200 at Memphis Motorsports Park. However, his top-10 count dipped down to fourteen, to which he was located in at the ninth spot in the final driver standings.
