Kansas: Nationwide results

Matt Kenseth was victorious in the Kansas Lottery 300 Nationwide Series race on Saturday afternoon, after a late clash caught up Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch.
Joe Gibbs Racing's Matt Kenseth continued his run of recent Cup success with victory in the Saturday afternoon NASCAR Nationwide Series Kansas Lottery 300 race ahead of Paul Menard, his 28th win in 260 series starts and his second of 2013. However it was a late race clash between Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch that will likely be the talking point for days to come.

Austin Dillon started the race from pole position having earlier set a new Nationwide Series track qualifying record with a lap of 29.281s (184.420mph) that put him him 0.057s ahead of Justin Allgaier for his tenth pole in 73 series starts and his seventh of 2013 alone. Dillon duly pulled out a solid lead before an early caution on lap 4 for Hal Martin hitting the wall on the backstretch, Allgaier taking the lead at the restart on lap 7 until Parker Kligerman gave chase and took the lead on lap 20 just before the pre-scheduled competition caution on lap 26 to allow teams to check track conditions after heavy overnight rain.

During that time, Kyle Busch had moved up to 19th having been forced to start from the back of the grid for an engine change - good practice for his Cup race tomorrow where he has a similar handicap having been forced to the backup car because of a practice crash on Saturday morning. Regan Smith took up the race lead after the restart on lap 30. but Brian Vickers spun on lap 37 to bring out the third caution of the day, and Ryan Sieg spun in turn 2 soon after the restart to put the race quickly back under caution again on lap 45. There were two more spins on lap 52, separate affairs for Joe Nemechek and Travis Pastrana on the backstretch that fortunately did not result in any damaging contact and so both cars were able to stay in the race.

Having bounced back from some earlier issues including a vibration and a hole in the front grille, Matt Kenseth briefly took the lead from Smith on lap 68 but Smith was immediately back in charge through to a round of green flag pit stops that was interrupted by a spin for Elliott Sadler in turn 2 on lap 91. This allowed Dillon and Allgaier to take the top positions for the restart while Smith, Kenseth and Kilgerman paid for having stopped prior to the caution by being forced to take the restart in 15th, 16th and 17th positions after taking advantage of the wavearound to get their laps back.

By the time a debris caution came out on lap 117, Brad Keselowski had worked his way up into second place and duly won the race off pit lane, while Regan Smith opted to stay out to pick up his former lead again for the restart on lap 122. That saw TJ Bell and Nelson Piquet Jr. immediately connect and spin to bring the yellows straight back out once more; at the next restart attempt there were only four green flag laps before the ninth caution lap 133, a consequence of an incident between Bryan Silas and Ken Butler in turn 2. An equally brief period of green flag racing was brought to an end on lap 145 when Chris Buescher and Brian Vickers spun out of turn 2

Brad Keselowski won a wild restart on lap 151 to claim the lead which he held for over a dozen laps until Matt Kenseth used lapped traffic ahead to slip his way under the #22 on lap 166 and quickly stretch out a lead of more than a second over Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Sadler, Allgaier and Smith, with Trevor Bayne in seventh ahead of Dillon. Busch did his best to wrest second place during what turned out to be the longest green flag stint of the race, but was repulsed at every turn. Finally it seemed rather as if Busch simply ran out of patience, keeping his foot down as the two exited turn 4 which meant that he inexorably turned the #22 into a lurid spin all the way down the frontstretch until finally it crashed backwards into the outside wall and demolished the rear end of the car. Keselowski was out of the race, and made his fury at Busch known with clear signals directed at the #54's pit crew before he jogged all the way to the medical centre to be checked out.

"I got wrecked by a dirty driver," fumed Keselowski. "There is no other way of putting it. He is cool with that. I have raced him really cool over the last year to be respectful to him and try to repair our relationship. I've watched him wreck my trucks and cost him from winning race. He put me in the fence in Chicago in the truck race and the Nationwide races he has been pulling this crap. It is not gonna last I can tell you that. I feel bad for the guys next to me that are going to have to fix his stuff. That is going to be part of racing and they are going to have to deal with it."

Busch didn't benefit from his actions and dropped to fifth in a very poor restart after being handed the inside line by his team mate the race leader, a choice that allowed Kenseth to fly safely to the chequered flag ahead of Paul Menard who just pipped Regan Smith to second on the final lap. Busch fought his way back to fourth ahead of Allgaier and Dillon, but he might find that his dumping of Keselowski has repercussions that extend into the Cup series as a heated Keselowski threatened appropriate retribution. Back in the Nationwide standings it hadn't been a great day for Sam Hornish Jr. who suffered damage when he side-swiped the wall and who struggled to a 17th place finish in Kansas, meaning that in the championship standings he's surrendered the lead to Austin Dillon who had an eight point advantage with four races remaining in 2013.
