The victory was Harvick's third at Kansas Speedway, tying him for most ever at the 1.5-mile track. Busch nabbed his sixth Top-10 finish of the season at the checkered flag.

Larson started the race from the rear of the field but by Stage 2 had found his way to the lead and looked like the only driver capable of challenging Kevin Harvick for the victory.

The finish was a dramatic conclusion to a race that had been flying by.

Kyle Larson's roiling weekend at Kansas Speedway ended on an upswing despite late contact with Ryan Blaney that cost him a chance at the win in Saturday night's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series' KC Masterpiece 400. Their hits remain incredibly popular to all audiences, with songs that just get you pumped up. "We've won some races even though we hadn't had the dominant vehicle in a few of those". "So, we'll what NASCAR says about it, but I think it's pretty obvious that we have a ton of damage back there". "I think I've got to give them the notch a little bit". We need to be a lot better for tomorrow night's race. "We had been so tight all night". The couple also has a 3-year-old son, Owen.

"We haven't been dominant each week, but we've been able to execute as a team - myself as a driver - to be able to get those wins". Fox Sports 1 provides live television coverage starting at 8 p.m.

Harvick has never won more than five races in a season, and now he has 24 left to get to six or more. And that's always a good thing. Jeff Gordon won the first two Cup races here and finished with three Kansas victories overall.

Now steering a Ford, Crafton may well be in line to break that Toyota streak.

In the complaint, she mentions that how her children marched out of the plane like criminals, and how humiliating it was for her. After Obioma used the bathroom before the plane took off, the man refused to let her occupy her seat when she returned.

He held on the rest of the way to win for the third time in Kansas.

Martin Truex Jr. finished second in Saturday's race. Brad Keselowski, Ford, 267 15. Matt Kenseth makes his season debut for Roush-Fenway Racing, replacing Trevor Bayne in the No. 6 Ford. Truex swept the 2017 races at Kansas.

What to Watch For: Kansas Speedway has proven to be a hard venue to predict victory. Chase Elliott, Chevrolet, 267 13. Kyle Busch, Toyota, 267 11. He gained valuable stage points by finishing inside the Top 10 in all the stages. Kyle Busch retained the series lead by 12 points over Logano in second place and 19 over Harvick in third. Front row starters, however, have won eight of the 17 races. He is also a two-time victor at Kansas.
