NASCAR Kansas: Live Race Updates, Results & Highlights From Buschy McBusch Race 400
Sunday’s Buschy McBusch 400 race could produce a 10th winner in as many as 11 NASCAR Cup Series events during the 2021 season.
Brad Keselowski became the ninth of those winners on April 25 as he led just one lap – the last – to come away victorious from a wild Geico 500. Once again, Denny Hamlin was poised for his first win of the season. He had pole position at the start of the race and led the most laps, but a costly double penalty on the pit lane knocked him out of the race in 32nd place.
Now runners will look to Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, where Hamlin won in 2020. Can he finally head to the winning lane, or will another runner take that coveted top spot?
