Harvick wins fifth race of season at Kansas

Harvick wins fifth race of season at Kansas

But he closed it out with a fast final lap and achieved a pass on the final lap in a win for the first time in Kansas history.

Everyone else entered the night race looking for answers in some way or another.

(3) Kyle Busch, Toyota, 267. Defending race victor and reigning Cup Series champion had one win prior to this weekend, but he and the 78 team haven't been as dominant as they were en route to the title. Harvick has won four of the 11 races this season, including last week at Dover.

"They're hitting on all cylinders", Truex said.

The extra time in the pits dropped him to sixth place when racing resumed, and Harvick "thought it was over".

One driver who was in quite the hurry early on was Kyle Larson.

Larson started at the back of the field after changing tires following qualifying. Larson was asked by FS1 reporter Jamie Little if the sag was because of a collision with Ryan Blaney on Lap 248 of 267 while battling for third. He barely beat the leaders to the finish line, allowing him to get back on the lead lap. Blaney was in the lead at the end of Stage 1 (80 laps), and Larson took Stage 2 (160 laps). Rounding out the top-12 in order were: Ryan Blaney, Kyle Busch, Aric Almirola, Brad Keselowski, Denny Ham;in, Truex, Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Chris Buescher, Paul Menard and Erik Jones.

With Stage 2 looking like it might go green the whole way, green flag pit stops were important.

"I didn't have it until after Blaney and I got together", he said.

Until he wasn't, passing Harvick to take the lead with a move that impressed even a legendary former NASCAR champion.

Brexit: Scotland set to reject EU Withdrawal Bill
When the UK Government was taking welfare reforms through Parliament, MSPs withheld consent for part of this legislation. The problem is that clause 15 of that bill automatically transfers those new powers to Whitehall.

Harvick ran a fast lap of 28.600 seconds (188.811 mph) during Friday's qualifying.

"I'm definitely to blame on that", said Blaney, who won the first stage before Larson had charged to the front to capture the second. 1 time for 10 laps; J. Logano 2 times for 6 laps; A. Dillon 1 time for 4 laps.

We weren't really going to finish 400 miles without a caution for an incident, right?

The race was free of wrecks until the last 30 laps, when Alex Bowman and Daniel Suarez got into each other.

Seven cars were taken out in a crash nearly immediately after the Larson-Blaney incident. William Byron, Chevrolet, 252, Accident 34.

(15) Ryan Newman, Chevrolet, Accident, 253. That one came with nine laps left and happened when William Byron got loose and collided with Clint Bowyer and Byron's auto ended up slamming into the outside wall and ended up on top of the vehicle of Ryan Newman.

Truex used some pit strategy to restart in the lead, and quickly built a buffer.

Harvick surged past Martin Truex Jr. with one lap to go Saturday night at Kansas Speedway, winning for the fifth time in what has turned out to be a record-setting start to the year.

Harvick qualified on the pole and ran near the front all night, escaping all the trouble caused by a couple of late-race cautions.
