NASCAR at Kansas

Post by bigdc48 on Wed May 04, 2016 10:37 am

After a wild, yet entertaining weekend at Talladega, NASCAR ships off to the nation's heartland for some night racing at the treacherous Kansas Speedway. Brad Keselowski is looking for 2 in a row after winning last week and his 2nd at Kansas, while Jimmie Johnson is looking to get back on track and defend his Kansas crown of one year ago. BTW, this was the track that began the Kenseth-Logano scuffle back in the fall of last year, and we all know has that turned out.

The truck series is back on Friday night after a one-month break. Clint Bowyer is the only Cup driver in the race driving the #24 Chevy for GMS Racing.

The Cup race and the truck race are on FS1.

Numbers for Kansas Speedway, which was once again inspired by The_Wall_92:


197.612: The track record which was set by Kevin Harvick in October 2014.

20: The number of Cup races at the Kansas Speedway.

2001: The year of the series' first visit to the circuit, in which that year was won by Jeff Gordon.

3: The number of wins that both Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson have here, which is tied for the most at this track.

12: The number of winners at Kansas Speedway since 2001.

So apparently, John Wrecks Weekly got the Pole for the truck race. If this had been a couple years ago my jaw would have fallen off.

I thought that was the best truck race I've seen in about 2 or 3 years. Congrats William Byron on the W.

Johnny Sauter needs to have his diaper changed after his salty interview last night. In fact, knowing him, he would have done the same thing that Ben Rhodes did. And him calling Rhodes names is just childish on his part, but that's my opinion.

Kyle Busch finally broke the Kansas curse. Decent race at best, IMO. Good night.
