Kansas Weekend

Hey readers! Here's my take on Kansas race weekend. The Nationwide was off this time but returns to action at Iowa.

Friday was the Truck race. Kyle Busch won with 104 laps led, followed by Matt Crafton, Joey Logano with 41 laps led, Austin Dillon with 18 laps led and Tayler Malsam.  Rounding out the top-10 were Jeb Burton, German Qurioga with 1 lap led, Ron Hornaday, Jr. Joe Nemechek and rookie Mason Mingus. Ryan Blaney led 2 laps but finished 22nd after an accident. Rookie Jimmy Weller led 1 lap before he was 25 due to an accident.

Saturday was the Cup race and they had a 35 minute weather delay.  The later start meant they were in the dark sooner than they thought.  Jeff Gordon won with 9 laps led, followed by Kevin Harvick with 119 laps led, Kasey Kahne with 22 laps led, Joey Logano with 63 laps led and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. with 9 laps led.  Rounding out the top-10 were Carl Edwards with 6 laps led, Danica Patrick, who got a career best finish,  Aric Almirola, Jimmie Johnson with 24 laps led and Matt Kenseth with 1 lap led.  Brad Keselowski led 13 laps and finished 13th.  Kyle Busch led 1 lap before he finished 15th.  A lot of drivers spun for some reason.

Come back next week for my take on All-Star Weekend and the Iowa Nationwide race.
