Kansas Speedway has generally been kind to driver Kevin Harvick.

He started on the pole at the Kansas City, Kansas track last October and won the race.

He is back at the pole at the 1.5-mile oval after posting a track qualifying record of 194.252. This will be his second pole of the season.

Tonight’s 7 pm race is the 5-Hour Energy 400 and will have Joey Logano starting second. Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards and Kyle Larson three through five.

The rest of the Top 10 in order, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick and Greg Biffle. Patrick has qualified tweeks in a row in the Top-10.

Harvick has two wins during the 2014 season and won at Darlington from the pole.

Stewart wins NASCAR Pepsi 400 at Fontana

Tony Stewart pulled away from Jimmie Johnson on a late restart Sunday to win the Pepsi 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

The four-time defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion walked away with a bigger points lead.

Johnson finished third after a late pass by Clint Bowyer and has a 36-point lead over Denny Hamlin in the Chase for the championship with six races remaining.

Tony Stewart was well back in the Chase after running out of fuel while leading late at Loudon, New Hampshire and struggled at Dover Delaware. He drove well at Kansas City, Kansas last week, finishing fourth, but still entered the California race 10th in points, 127 behind Johnson.

Stewart’s qualifying on Friday was no so good, starting 22nd. He quickly moved his way up to the front of the pack. By the middle of the race, he was fifth and then took the lead with 51 laps left and then regained the lead after losing it briefly to Juan Pablo Montoya.

Greg Biffle wins NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway to stay in The Chase

Up until Sunday’s race in Kansas City, Kansas, Greg Biffle had had two poor races to start the Chase.

Biffle clawed back into the title chase as he won the third race of 10 at the Kansas Speedway.

Jimmie Johnson is back on top of the NASCAR leaderboard after rallying from as low as 21st in the race to finish second behind Biffle. The four-time defending champion Johnson now has an eight-point lead over Denny Hamlin who was leading by 35 points at the start of the race.

Next week’s race is in California, where four of Johnson’s five career wins have come in the last six races there.

Nine drivers left the state of Kansas separated by 101 points. It’s the closest the Chase field has been after three races since the NASCAR governing body switched to the format in 2004.

Hamlin had his first “off” race of the Chase. Just like Jimmie Johnson, he struggled early in the race. His crew made just enough adjustments for a 12th-place finish which evaporated his 35-point lead.

Dixon as usual wins at Kansas Speedway

compiled from staff, wire and IndyCar Series notes

Scott Dixon had to make very few changes during pit stops on Saturday and cruised to his second straight IndyCar Series win at Kansas Speedway, placing himself atop the list of favorites for the upcoming race on the bricks, the Indianapolis 500.

Loose early in the race and fast the rest of the way, Dixon rarely was threatened the whole race. He led the final 150 of the 200 laps on the 1.5-mile oval and finished more than 3 seconds ahead of runner-up Dario Franchitti.

Dixon takes the early lead in IndyCar’s new oval championship and becomes a front-runner for the Indy 500, a race he won in 2008. He’s also the second straight repeat winner at Kansas, giving Target Chip Ganassi Racing four straight wins following Dan Wheldon’s 2008 defense.

Dixon opened the season with a sixth in Brazil, followed by a disappointing 18th at St. Petersburg with two top-five finishes, including a runner-up to Ryan Hunter-Reay in Long Beach two weeks ago.

Back on the Kansas City, Kansas oval, where he is comfortable, Dixon has finished in the top four each of the past five races.
