Kenseth wins Nationwide race at Kansas Speedway

Posted:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth is proving to be unbeatable at Kansas Speedway.

The winner of the last two Sprint Cup races at the track, Kenseth hopped into his Nationwide car and drove it to victory Saturday, taking advantage of a late-race wreck involving Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch to conserve enough fuel for the end.

Kenseth crossed the finish line well ahead of Paul Menard, who got around Regan Smith on the final lap to take second. Busch finished fourth and Justin Allgaier was fifth.

Kenseth held on despite worn tires to win his second Nationwide win of the season. He'll try to extend his lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship on Sunday.
