NASCAR Preview for Kansas

After 3 races, the Chase for the Sprint Cup is tight as the series moves to the heartland of America for the fourth race in the Chase.  Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards share the points lead, with the next seven drivers all within 19 points of the lead heading to Kansas Speedway.

Coming off his win at Dover Kurt Busch is looking for a good run this week, but Kansas is a track where he’s struggled over the year, but back in June he led the most laps and settled for ninth when he was forced to gas up with nine laps left.  It was his best finish since 2004 .

Busch and Tony Stewart are both nine points behind Harvick and Edwards.

Brad Keselowski is looking for a better day after his 20th-place run at Dover dropped him to sixth in the standings.

Probably the most effective driver at Kansas over the past decade has been Jeff Gordon.  He won the first two races there back in 2001 and ’02 and has finished in top five in the last five races.

The four-time series champion is 19 points out of the lead with  seven races to go.

Gordon, Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle each have two victories at Kansas.
