What’s the starting lineup for Kansas? Kansas is the second stop on the NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule, which will take place this weekend at Kansas Speedway.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series begins its season with four races — two at Daytona and two at Atlanta. The first race is a qualifying race, with the top two cars advancing to the Round of 12. The following week is another qualifying race, with the top three cars advancing to the Round of 8. Then there are two elimination races — one for each round — before the championship race in November.
Here’s how it breaks down:
Qualifying Race: Saturday, May 18 at 5 p.m. ET; FS1 (TV) & FOX Sports Go (Streaming)
Round of 12 Race: Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. ET; FS1 (TV) & FOX Sports Go (Streaming)
The Kansas Speedway has been a fixture on the NASCAR calendar for over a decade, but it’s only been in recent years that the 1.5-mile track has become one of the most popular stops on the circuit.
The inaugural Cup race was held at Kansas in 2001, and it was won by Bobby Labonte. Since then, there have been 11 more Cup races at Kansas and all but one winner (Kyle Busch) has taken home the trophy.
The latest edition of this event was held last August and was won by Kyle Larson. It was his first career win at Kansas Speedway and he became just the second driver to win at both Richmond International Raceway and Kansas Speedway during the same year (the other being Jimmie Johnson).
Why is Kyle Busch not racing?
Kyle Busch’s absence from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has been a topic of discussion since he suffered injuries in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) crash during the Xfinity Series (XFINITY) race at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 21.
Busch has been sidelined with a compound fracture of his right leg and two broken vertebrae in his lower back. He was released from the hospital on Feb. 27 and has been recovering at home since then. His recovery time is estimated at three to four months, but no official return date has been announced by Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR).
What’s next for Kyle Busch?
The question that many fans are asking is when Busch will return to racing — if ever again? Before answering that question, let’s take a look back at what happened during the XFINITY event at Daytona:
On lap 22 of the 60-lap race, Busch was involved in an incident with Gray Gaulding and spun out in Turn 4. After coming to rest on the frontstretch grass, Busch climbed out of his car and walked across pit road before climbing back into his No. 18 Toyota Camry. However, after staging the car at pit entrance[
Kyle Busch is not racing this weekend. The driver of the No. 18 Toyota was involved in a crash during practice for Sunday’s race at Michigan International Speedway, and he was released from the infield care center on Friday evening.
“Kyle Busch was involved in an incident during NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice today at Michigan International Speedway,” NASCAR said in a statement Friday. “After being examined by team doctors at the track, he was transported to an area hospital for further evaluation.”
Busch’s team said he has been released from the hospital and will return to his home in Las Vegas for further evaluation and recovery. The team did not have any more information about his condition or whether he would be able to compete next weekend at Sonoma Raceway.
Who’s on the pole for Sunday’s race at Talladega?
Martin Truex Jr.
Truex is the defending winner of the Geico 500, and he’s been consistently strong at Talladega over the past few seasons. He’s led laps in five straight races on restrictor-plate tracks, including last week’s race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Busch hasn’t finished outside of the top 10 this season, and he’s coming off a win at Phoenix. He’ll start on the outside pole for Sunday’s race at Talladega, and he has four top-five finishes in five starts at restrictor-plate tracks this year.
Harvick has three wins this season — two at Daytona and one at Atlanta — so he certainly has the speed to challenge Truex for the win. However, he hasn’t finished better than fourth in three career starts at Talladega Superspeedway.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the pole for Talladega
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been atop the leaderboard at Talladega Superspeedway for a decade now, and he’s hoping to add to that total on Sunday.
Earnhardt turned in the fastest lap during qualifying for Sunday’s Good Sam 500, turning a lap of 188.740 mph to secure the pole position in his No. 88 Chevrolet SS.
“I’m real proud of my guys,” Earnhardt said after qualifying. “They’ve been working hard all year long, and we’re starting to see some results.”
He’ll start alongside Danica Patrick in Sunday’s race, with Kevin Harvick on row two and Kasey Kahne on row three. Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson will round out the top five starting spots on Sunday afternoon at Talladega Superspeedway.
Is Alex Bowman still in the playoffs?
Is Alex Bowman still in the playoffs?
The answer is yes. Alex Bowman was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Daniel Suarez on Oct. 28, 2019.
Bowman started off strong with a top-10 finish at Watkins Glen International on July 5, 2019. He then went on to finish outside of the top 20 at Michigan International Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway before winning at Darlington Raceway on Sept. 6, 2019.
After that win though, Bowman struggled mightily in October and November with finishes of 32nd or worse in three consecutive races leading up to his elimination from the playoffs.
Alex Bowman’s best finish this season was a second-place result in the first round of playoffs against Daniel Suarez on Oct. 28, 2019 — four days after he was eliminated by Suarez.
Alex Bowman is still in the playoffs. The 23-year-old driver from North Carolina qualified for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup by winning at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May. He finished 14th at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday to remain in 10th place in the standings.
Bowman is driving for Rick Hendrick, who owns both Hendrick Motorsports and JR Motorsports. The latter has won the last two championships in the Xfinity Series and will field a car for Bowman at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend.
What place did Alex Bowman finish?
What place did Alex Bowman finish?
The NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race at Bristol Motor Speedway was a battle of attrition. Alex Bowman was the only driver to lead laps, but he ended up finishing third. The race was shortened by rain, so it’s hard to say how much the weather affected each driver.
Bowman started on the pole and led 45 laps before being passed by Cole Custer on lap 53. Custer led for five laps before Bowman took back control of the race. The two ran side-by-side for several laps before Bowman got back in front. He led until lap 75 when two caution flags flew for crashes in turn four, bringing out a red flag that lasted 11 minutes and 25 seconds because of heavy rain.”
Alex Bowman finished third in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
Bowman, who started fifth, led a race-high 86 laps before finishing behind Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick.
The finish was Bowman’s best of the year and his first top-five since Atlanta in March. The result also moved him up to seventh in points standings.
Why is Alex Bowman not Racing?
The answer to this question is probably not important to you. It might be important to Alex Bowman, who is not racing in the Daytona 500. But it’s not important to you, because you’re here on this site, reading this article.
But it is important to me, because I’m writing it. And if you’re reading it, then it must be important to you, or else why would you be here?
So let’s talk about Alex Bowman, who isn’t racing in the Daytona 500.
Why isn’t he? I’m glad you asked!
The race is on, and Alex Bowman is missing in action.
Why is Alex Bowman not racing?
The answer is simple: Because he’s not good enough to be in the Cup Series. At least that’s how it looks to me.
Bowman’s team owner Chip Ganassi has said that the 25-year-old driver will return to NASCAR at some point this season. When that happens, I’m willing to bet that he’ll be in one of his familiar No. 1 Chevrolets racing for one of his familiar teammates, Kyle Larson or Jamie McMurray. But what if he doesn’t? What if something else comes along for Bowman? Something better than a part-time Cup ride with an underfunded team? Would it be worth it for him to leave Ganassi and go elsewhere?
It might seem like an easy decision now, but it won’t after a few years of running around the minor leagues trying to prove himself again.
Bowman has been around long enough now that we can see him clearly as a driver instead of just a kid who was good enough once upon a time. His talent was evident early on — he won seven races in 62 starts between 2012 and 2014 — but so were his flaws: He never showed
