Matt Kenseth Wins NASCAR In Kansas City
The fast new surface and a hard tire contributed to Sunday's race-record 14 cautions, a season high for the Sprint Cup Series.
Nobody was immune from the problems either, as at least five title contenders had issues.
Jimmie Johnson led 44 laps early, but crashed hard after spinning by himself. He had to stop at least a half-dozen times on pit road for repairs over two caution periods to salvage a ninth-place finish. He remains second in the 'Chase Point Standings'.
Next up: Sunday at Martinsville.
