Ryan Blaney takes Kansas pole as 11 fail to pass inspection

Martin Truex Jr. finally ended his string of rotten luck at Kansas Speedway. "That's for sure. You know for years and years even before I was with this team, for whatever reason, we always ran good here and never could close the deal". It's just unbelievable. Awesome day, awesome weekend.

"This team rocks, man, they're so good", Truex said. "There's a lot of room on this track so we'll be just fine". We got our vehicle better and better each round, and that's what you want. Truex was followed by Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Blaney, and Kyle Busch. We worked our way through it.

He remains second in driver points but leads the series with 15 playoff bonus points. Logano's vehicle turned left violently, tapped Danica Patrick's auto from behind and sent her spinning into the wall nose-first as the auto burst into flames.

NASCAR stopped the race while safety workers cut the roof off Almirola's Fusion and extricated him from the auto.

Logano and Patrick were checked and released from the care center. I hope it was just a safety precaution to get him out on a stretcher. We've been working really hard at it. Something broke on my auto. "You never know what's going to happen". "I'm just so proud of everyone on this team; all my guys". If you aren't close to the edge you won't be competitive. Blaney had the lead with 20 laps remaining when Corey LaJoie lost control and brought out the 13th caution. On the restart, Denny Hamlin clipped Kurt Busch, who hit Jimmie Johnson for the second time of the night setting up the green-white-checkered finish.

Blaney ran a fast lap of 189.600 miles per hour in earning his first career pole win, earning congratulations from several drivers.

"It happens, I guess". "But good showing. Go out there and lead laps and run with some really good cars. Today, we were able to get those ones right when it mattered".

The officials missed that one, as well as a two-hander to the back of the legs of Nashville defenseman P.K. Predators LW Harry Zolnierczyk, a healthy scratch for the previous games, returned to the lineup.

"I knew if I didn't come out of those restarts with the lead, I wasn't going to win", he said. It kind of stinks. "These races are so hard to win", said Truex, who had a fluke tire change problem rob him of the win after leading 172 laps past year.

The leaders pitted with Blaney regaining the lead off of pit road. They will start at the back of the field tonight. It was Kyle Busch's second stage win of the season, but his first since the season-opening Daytona 500 in February.

The third stage however saw one of the scariest wrecks in quite some time.

Earnhardt hasn't won in 33 Cup starts at Charlotte.

A few traditional frontrunners struggled through the first two stages of the race. He recovered to finish the second stage in the 10th position. Elliott quickly fell off the lead lap. The penalty was commuted by NASCAR this season. The yellow flag waved for Corey LaJoie, right after their stops. "It was vibrating really bad. It just didn't like up for us, there, at the end".

Rookies and veterans, alike, compete in these two series, but Kyle Busch made his second season appearance in the Camping World Truck Series on Friday at Kansas Speedway and actually won the Toyota Tundra 250. Twelve drivers failed to make qualifying attempts Friday as a result of not getting through pre-qualifying inspection in time to do so.

Love him or hate him, Busch is a talented Cup Series driver who has had some tough breaks this season, including four top 10 finishes through the first 10 races but no wins. Keselowski, 33, won the inaugural spring race at Kansas Speedway in 2011. He's definitely talented enough, and it would be interesting indeed if he beat his JGR teammates to a win in 2017.
