Sprint Cup Series
From Denny Hamlin
How have you seen the Short Track Showdown grow over the last few years?
“The support for the race has been great. It’s an honor to have some of my peers commit to running in the Short Track Showdown, coming to Richmond early and helping a good cause. It’s also very rewarding to give back to the area that I grew up in and see guys that I used to compete with get the chance to race against some of NASCAR’s best at Richmond. I’m bummed that I can’t drive in the race this year, but it’s still an opportunity to raise awareness for a bunch of great charities and put on a great race for the fans.”
It was a dominating performance by Matt Kenseth, who won after starting from the pole and leading the most laps in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP 400 at Kansas Speedway.
Kenseth earned his second win of the season and JGR’s fourth of the year, but his teammates were not able to fair as well with each of the team’s other three entries involved in an accident at some point of the race. Brian Vickers was able to finish several laps off in 31st, while Kyle Busch and Elliott Sadler each had their days ended early and finished 38th and 40th respectively.
