The Kansas Speedway had a very exciting finish on Saturday night.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rallied from two laps down to win the race.

Stenhouse, the defending Nationwide Series champion, earned his sixth win of the 2012 season.

Luck was on Stenhouse’s side as race leader, Kyle Busch ran out of gas heading into the final turn.

A late caution allowed the race to be extended for six more laps, which stretched all cars’ fuel tanks.

Austin Dillon finished second to clinch the manufacturers’ championship for Chevrolet.

Stenhouse survived an accident with Joey Logano early in the race which caused him to fall two laps down. He was able to win due to the fact that his pit sequence was different than the other drivers.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1909, is now an asphalt track with flat straightaways.

IMS has the claim as the world’s largest spectator sporting venue with permanent seating reaching 250,000 or more.

The track was paved in 1909 with 3.2 million bricks. A “yard of bricks” is at the starting-finish line.

RECAPPING THE 2011 BRICKYARD 400:

Paul Menard earned his first Sprint Cup win, holding off crowd-favorite, Jeff Gordon by 0.7 seconds. His crew chief’s pit strategy helped Menard lead 11 of the final 16 laps.

Jamie McMurray, the last driver to surrender the lead, finished fourth in the race. Kasey Kahne started the race second and led a high of 48 laps but finished a disappointing 18th.

Menard’s dad, John, has been a car owner for many drivers in the Indy 500.

The top 10 starting lineup with their qualifying speed for this year’s race includes:

Chevrolet’s return to the IndyCar circuit has been very successful.

But the manufacturer has decided to change the engines for all 11 of its racing teams before the series can open the weekend at Long Beach, California.

A defect was discovered during testing on Monday.

All of the Chevrolet drivers who use the engine will drop 10 spots on the starting grid before Sunday’s race under a series rule that disallows engine changes before each one has completed 1,850 miles.
