For the third straight race the Sprint Cup pole sitter emerged the winner.  Matt Kenseth won for the second time this season and for the second consecutive time at Kansas Speedway holding off a challenge from Kasey Kahne on the final lap. 

Kenseth led 163 of 267 laps but it was a late restart that allowed Kenseth to take the lead out of the pits, Kahne took over second and that’s the way they finished.

Jimmie Johnson came in third with Martin Truex, Jr. and Clint Bowyer completing the Top 5.

With his third-place finish Johnson opens up a 37-point lead in the championship standings.  Kahne moved up five spots to second while Brad Keselowski stands third.

Kyle Busch dropped five spots to seventh.  Kansas is the only track that he doesn’t have a Top Five finish.  It was an early exit for him after a hard crash into the Turn Four wall then collided head-on with Joey Logano sending both cars to the garage area.

Next up on the schedule is a visit to Richmond International under the light next weekend.
