Joey Logano Spins Matt Kenseth Late To Win NASCAR Chase Race at Kansas
Joey Logano spun Matt Kenseth with less than 10 laps left and hung on to win his second straight NASCAR Chase race by capturing the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway on Sunday.
After taking the lead on lap 195, Kenseth was dominating the field until the spin. Logano was on Kenseth’s tail when the leader spun with five laps to go. Logano then pulled away from the field on the re-start.
Denny Hamlin finished second with Jimmie Johnson third, Kasey Kahne fourth and Kyle Busch fifth.
As a result of his win at Charlotte last week, Logano was already guaranteed a berth in the Eliminator 8, the phase of NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series playoffs which starts in two weeks at Martinsville Speedway.
NASCAR’s Chase series continues next Sunday at Talladega.
