Kenseth Wins At Kansas, Keselowski Remains Points Leader

Matt Kenseth celebrates his victory at Kansas Speedway (Getty Images)

It was a long day at Kansas Speedway. During a season where long, long green lap periods were the norm, Kansas was one caution after another – 14 in all. In the end Matt Kenseth was the winner for the second time in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship run and Brad Keselowski hung on to the points lead.

It was the second win in three weeks for Kenseth, and he moved up to ninth in the standings, but he’s still 55 points back.

Martin Truex, Jr. came in second, with Paul Menard, Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart completing the Top Five.

Keselowski finished eighth with Johnson coming in ninth to keep Johnson in second place, seven points back. Johnson led 44 laps early on, but a spin put him into the wall and he needed at least half a dozen stops to repair the damage. And amazing with as much damage as there was he never lost a lap.

Denny Hamlin falls to 20 points back and Clint Bowyer trails by 25.

Four more races left. Martinsville is up next.
