Kyle Busch has had a love-hate relationship with Kansas Speedway recently, but tonight Busch definitely has a little bit better feeling for the track after winning the SFP 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in Kansas City, Kan.
“Kansas? I’m a winner at Kansas,” exclaimed Busch as he exited his truck in Victory Lane.
Busch, who has a NASCAR Nationwide Series win at Kansas Speedway, is hoping to parlay his win tonight into some momentum for tomorrow’s 5-hour ENERGY® 400 Benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Busch qualified 24th for tomorrow’s race.
Matt Crafton, who won last year’s SFP 250 and finished second tonight, currently leads the point standings in the series by eight points over Timothy Peters.
In NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying, Kevin Harvick captured the pole for tomorrow’s 5-hour ENERGY® 400 Benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race at Kansas Speedway, which is Harvick’s second of the season. He is attempting to become the sixth driver to win multiple races at Kansas Speedway. Harvick won last October’s Hollywood Casino 400, his first Sprint Cup Series win at Kansas Speedway.
Tickets for tomorrow night’s 5-hour ENERGY® 400 Benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation are available at the Kansas Speedway ticket office from 9 a.m. until noon tomorrow and then at Kansas Speedway’s Gate B starting at noon.
