Kyle Busch took the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway after starting sixth and leading only 34 laps.

Hal Martin has lived his entire racing life following the motto of his beloved hometown football team, the New Orleans Saints. So for this driver, known as the ‘Ragin Cajun’, there will only be one acceptable outcome to his Nationwide Series debut in Kansas this weekend, to ‘Finish Strong.’
