Roush Fenway Racing driver Matt Kenseth won his third race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the second of the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup following the Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas City, Kansas yesterday. The race was the first on reconfigured Kansas Speedway and had a season-high 14 cautions.

Kenseth, who started in the twelfth position, led 78 laps of the 267-lap race. Michael Waltrip Racing driver Martin Truex, Jr. finished second, while Paul Menard finished third, ahead of Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart. Clint Bowyer, Regan Smith, Brad Keselowski, and Jimmie Johnson followed in the next four positions. Jeff Gordon managed a tenth place finish. Other drivers participating in the Chase for the Sprint Cup finished farther back, such as Denny Hamlin who finished thirteenth.

Johnson, who was second behind Keselowski in the Drivers’ Championship before the event, collided into the wall halfway through the race after leading 44 laps before the caution was given for Aric Almirola‘s crash on lap 123. Johnson’s crew managed to keep Johnson on the same lap as the leaders, allowing him to gain positions. Stewart and Greg Biffle were among other drivers who had difficulties during the race, as both had violations on pit road.

After the race, Johnson stated, “I’m definitely proud of this team and the fact that we never give up, we continue to fight and we try to get every point that we can. I’m very proud but also disappointed. I crashed the car. Spun out, trying to get inside the 56. He bobbled a little in front of me, and I thought that was an opportunity to jump on the gas real hard. When I did that, my car took off and I couldn’t catch it.”

Following the race, Keselowski remains the Drivers’ Championship leader with 2,250 points. Seven points behind, Johnson is second with 2,243. In third, Hamlin is twenty points behind, but five ahead of Bowyer. Kahne and Truex, Jr. are fifth and sixth respectively with 2,220 and 2,207 points. Stewart, Gordon, Kenseth, and Harvick round out the top-ten positions for the Drivers’ Championship with four races remaining in the season.

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch won his third consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series spring race at Richmond International Speedway on Saturday during the 2011 Crown Royal Presents the Matthew and Daniel Hansen 400 in Virginia.

Allmendinger, Jimmie Johnson, and Tony Stewart followed in the next four positions. Brian Vickers could only manage a tenth place finish.

During the race, Ryan Newman collided into Juan Pablo Montoya, prompting Montoya to crash into the SAFER barrier. Following the accident, Newman told his crew, “I can’t believe they [NASCAR] aren’t going to black flag that 42 car. … I’m going to take care of it after the race.” On lap 236, Montoya collided back into Newman.

64 laps later, a nine car accident, involving Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin and six other drivers occurred. Following the accident, Gordon commented, “I seem to find the worst angles for hitting walls. I wish there was a SAFER barrier there. I seem to be able to find the ones without the SAFER barrier.”

After the race, Busch said, “I learned from Denny last fall, and I’m not going to say what I learned. He might know, but we did a good job at doing what we needed to do.” Next, Hamlin told his crew chief Mike Ford that he “didn’t have anything” for Busch.

Following the race, Edwards remains Drivers’ Championship leader with 335 points. Nine points behind, Johnson is second with 326.

He made the decision that my car was faster leading. And the way these things are finishing up, the lead car’s going to get the win. In some respects, he was more worried about the team having a good performance than anything.”

Before the final pit stops, Jimmie Johnson was first, but after the stops concluded he fell to third as Kyle Busch became the leader. Kyle Busch maintained the lead to win the race ahead of Carl Edwards, while Johnson finished in the third position. Matt Kenseth took fouth, ahead of Paul Menard in fifth. Kevin Harvick managed the sixth position, after starting 15th on the grid. Kurt Busch, from the Penske Racing team, clinched the seventh position. Greg Biffle followed Kurt Busch in eighth, while Kasey Kahne could only manage ninth. Ryan Newman rounded out the top ten finishers in the race. Johnson led the most laps during the race with 164.

After doing his victory lap, Kyle Busch, who won the Nationwide Series race on Saturday, commented, “You go down the straightaway and you slam it into the corners and you mash the gas and you kind of sling right back out of the corners. It’s a lot of fun to do that. It’s kind of an art. Some guys are really good at it, and some find a knack that makes them really good at it and make it seem easy.”

Edwards described his frustration by finishing second, “I thought we’d be better matched with him, but he took off, and I just couldn’t get back to him to race. My gut told me there was going to be another caution. If I had known that was the only shot I had, I might have raced a little harder.”

Following the race, Kurt Busch became Drivers’ Championship leader with 150 points. Next, Edwards was second with 149, 11 points ahead of Tony Stewart and Newman. Menard and Kyle Busch was placed fifth and sixth with 136 and 133 points. Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and Martin Truex, Jr. rounded out the top-ten point positions.

Roush Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards, who qualified on the pole position, won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2010 Kobalt Tools 500 held on Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Arizona, United States. This became his first Sprint Cup win of the season. Throughout the course of the race there were five cautions and fourteen lead changes among five different drivers.

With 47 laps remaining in the 312 lap race, Denny Hamlin was first, but Edwards passed him one lap later. Edwards maintained the lead to win the race, while Hamlin made a pit stop because of a possible shortage of fuel. Ryan Newman took second, ahead of Logano in third. Greg Biffle managed the fourth position, after starting fourth on the grid. Jimmie Johnson, from the Hendrick Motorsports team, clinched the fifth position, after leading none of the laps during the race. Kevin Harvick followed Johnson in sixth, while Matt Kenseth could only manage seventh.

Mark Martin, Kurt Busch, and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top ten finishers in the race. Hamlin, the current Drivers’ championship leader, led 190 laps and finished twelfth. Following the race, Hamlin commented, “It’s pretty disappointing. We were in a good position there heading into next week. We just have to outrace them next week. We had a good car today and it didn’t work out strategy wise. We did what we had to do today we just didn’t have it at the end. It’s frustrating. We had a car that could win and that is something we’ve never had here. We’ll just go there next week and try to win the race. I don’t know if we were trying to be smart or conservative there are really short.” “I was sitting pretty,” Hamlin continued. “I have to leave Phoenix in Phoenix. I can’t control it. I did everything I could do today and it didn’t work out. It could have been a lot worse. We could have lost the points lead and we didn’t. We’ve had the best car in this Chase and might not win it. The full-court press will be on next week.”

Going into the final race of the season, Hamlin remained the Drivers’ championship leader with 6462 points, fifteen points ahead of Johnson in second, and 46 ahead of Harvick in third. This is the closest that the championship has been since the Chase format was introduced. The Manufacturers’ сhampionship standings are led by Chevrolet with 255, 42 points ahead of Toyota and 88 ahead of Ford. Johnson commented, “We had to work whatever magic we could at the end and now we have a points race heading to Miami. I know what my mindset is. I hope the pressure of being on Denny’s heels wears on him this week. One race winner take all, it’s going to be a hell of a show.”

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin, who qualified thirtieth, won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2010 AAA Texas 500 held on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, United States. This became his eighth win of the season, and his second at Texas Motor Speedway. Throughout the course of the race there were nine cautions and thirty-five lead changes among fourteen different drivers.

On the final restart, Matt Kenseth caught Hamlin and passed him. Later the same lap, Hamlin reclaimed the position, after Kenseth collided into the wall, prompting him to finish second during the race. Mark Martin finished third. Joey Logano managed the fourth position in the closing laps of the race, after starting twentieth on the grid. Greg Biffle, from the Roush Fenway Racing team, clinched the fifth position, after leading 223 laps during the race. Kevin Harvick followed Biffle in sixth, while Clint Bowyer could only manage seventh.

David Ragan, Jimmie Johnson, and Paul Menard rounded out the top ten finishers in the race. Jeff Gordon, another driver in the Chase, finished thirty-seventh. Following the race, Johnson commented, “It was just a long day. I had speed in the car. We worked our way forward and had issues on pit road. […] We gave away so much track position from the beginning. It’s tough to get back where we needed to.” “The past four years, we’ve been in a different position,” Johnson continued. “I’ve lost plenty of championships in the past, and this is racing, and it doesn’t come easy, and you are not going to get what you want every single year and every single weekend. “I can promise you this — I am trying as hard as I can. I know my team is. We’re doing everything we can. Thirty-three points back is not where we want to be, but we’re going to work to get back on top.”

Hamlin became the Drivers’ championship leader with 6,325 points, thirty-three points ahead of Johnson. The Manufacturers’ сhampionship standings is led by Chevrolet with 249, 40 points ahead of Toyota and 91 ahead of Ford with two races remaining in the season.

Looking forward to next week, Hamlin said, “I’m going to race Phoenix as if I’m 33 behind, to be honest with you. There’s no comfortable margin going into Homestead, because anything can happen. So for me — Phoenix being an up-and-down race track for me — I’ve got to really be focused on practice day to get what I need, to give [crew chief] Mike [Ford] the information that I need — just 100 percent stay focused is all I can do. But like I say, I’m not going to be conservative having the lead. I’m going to want to stretch that out before we get to Homestead. So that’s pretty much my mind-set.”

Roush Fenway Racing driver Greg Biffle, who qualified fifth, won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2010 Price Chopper 400 held on October 3, 2010 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, United States. This became his second win of the season.

Kevin Harvick managed the third position in the closing laps of the race, after starting twenty-fourth on the grid. Pole position winner Kasey Kahne collided with the wall earlier in the race, which prompted him to a thirty-seventh place finish.

Tony Stewart, from the Stewart Haas Racing team, clinched the fourth position, after leading the most laps with 76. Jeff Gordon followed Stewart in fifth, while Carl Edwards could only manage sixth.

Matt Kenseth, Paul Menard, Ryan Newman, and A. J. Allmendinger rounded out the top ten finishers in the race. Other drivers in the Chase, such as Denny Hamlin finished twelfth, and Kyle Busch finished in twenty-first.

Johnson now heads the Drivers’ championship with 5,503 points, eight points ahead of Denny Hamlin. Manufacturers’ сhampionship standings is lead by Chevrolet with 212, thirty-seven points ahead of Toyota and 77 ahead of Ford. Once the race concluded, Johnson commented, “I know we came [into Kansas] second. Of course, I wanted to be leading. I could care less where the 11 [Hamlin] was [Sunday]. It’s just not time to worry about that stuff. After Talladega, teams and drivers can work on a strategy of protecting or taking chances. We have to get deeper into the Chase to be concerned about who the points leader is.”
