Kevin Harvick Wins at Kansas

Kevin Harvick Wins at Kansas

Kevin Harvick emerged victorious when the dust settled over Saturday night's KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway. The California native started on the pole and led 79 of the 267 laps. But things really shook up a few laps later, when Harvick passed Larson on the restart to assume control, and the No. 42 auto began bumping with Blaney down the front stretch. Harvick didn't see the lead again until lap 244 for five laps and not again until two laps remaining.

Kevin Harvick won the pole (28.600 at 188.811).

"I think we can make it a lot better when we come back, but it came down to restarts there at the end and finally got Busch Light into victory lane". "But I'm thankful to be walking, so that's good". "The same thing tonight".

"We had that we didn't turn today into a win", he said, "but satisfying to see how much speed our auto had tonight, and good to show Chevy has some speed, at least the 42 team". "Those are the days that you just grind it out". He is also expected behind the wheel for the remaining races with Wyndham Rewards as the sponsor for Indianapolis, Dover, Phoenix and the season-ending race at Homestead.

78 5-hour ENERGY/Bass Pro Shops Toyota covered the 1.5-mile oval in 29.001 seconds at 186.200 miles per hour. So far, two drivers have won seven of the eleven races this year.

Truex wound up second after winning both races at the track last season.

Brad Keselowski, Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch own one Kansas victory each.

Kyle Larson's fourth-place finish wasn't easy for the California native. The damage ruined Larson's chances of winning, and sent Blaney slamming hard into the turn 1 wall. It's ironic that I say the action calms down a bit because the weather certainly hasn't this weekend as some violent thunderstorms rolled through Kansas Thursday night and Friday morning that drop hail and lightning on the track and surrounding area.

The red flag set up one last sprint to the finish. All drivers involved walked away from the on-track incident.

After his week started on a high with the birth of his daughter, Larson was on his way to capping it with a win. "I just saw everybody wrecking and the track was kind of blocked, so I tried to get down towards the grass", Kenseth said. "I was just trying to side-draft hard and the vehicle was kind of light down the frontstretch there and it was just hard racing at the end".

"It was pushing and shoving late race restart and everybody gets impatient so just wadded up a bunch of cars. If I go to the top he's just going to pass me on the bottom I might as well run where I feel like I'm the fastest and I did, it just wasn't enough". "Not what we wanted with our Breyers 2 N 1 Camaro".

Loverboy has been around for over three decades with their hit songs of "Lovin Every Minute of it.", "Turn Me Loose", "Working for the Weekend", and "Hot Girls in Love".

"I thought, if it came down to it, I could pass him on the bottom, because my vehicle went through (Turns) 1 and 2 on the bottom, or I could drive through the middle of 3 and 4, but I just had to pick which lane".

"We were just an innocent bystander really".

"Then the heart rate goes up, and I consciously step into the bubble, and I don't come out of it until 30 seconds after that last cymbal smash and I walk off-stage", said Dean.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads home to Charlotte next week, with the All-Star Race slated for next Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on FS1, with the Open to precede it at 6 p.m. ET as drivers not already qualified for the All-Star Race vie to finish in the top two to transfer into the big race.
