Kevin Harvick Wins At Kansas, Moves Up in Chase Standings

Kevin Harvick celebrates his victory at Kansas Speedway (Getty Images)

It was a good weekend for Kevin Harvick at Kansas Speedway. He won the pole, then drove to his third victory of the season and first at Kansas. At the finish line, he had a more-than-two-second lead over second place Kurt Busch, with Jeff Gordon finishing a close third.

Joey Logano and Carl Edwards completed the Top 5. Matt Kenseth finished out of the Top 10 in 11th place and saw his Chase for the Sprint Cup lead fall to three points over Jimmie Johnson. Meanwhile, Harvick’s win moved him from fifth to third place, 25 points back of Kenseth.

But it was a tough weekend for Kyle Busch. He crashed in practice on Saturday. He earned the anger of Brad Keselowski after tapping him out of the way in Saturday’s Nationwide Race. Then on Sunday, he had to start from the back of the pack in a back-up car. He tangled with Juan Pablo Montoya in the front stretch, then finally his day came to an end when he and Brian Vickers crashed. Kyle finished 34th and dropped two spots in the Chase standings to fall 35 points back of Kenseth with six races left.

Next on the schedule is a visit to Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
