Jeff Gordon Gets His Third Kansas Win
Jeff Gordon improved after his final pit stop and went on to score his first win of the season, and third at Kansas Speedway, in Saturday night’s 5-Hour ENERGY 400.
Kevin Harvick had one of the strongest cars and was in the lead before he made his final pit stop but entered the track behind Gordon and couldn’t get around him the rest of the race, finishing second.
Kasey Kahne placed a season-best third with Joey Logano fourth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. finishing fifth.
The first night Cup race at Kansas Speedway was delayed about 30 minutes by rain, saw a bank of backstretch lights go out and featured two multi-car crashes. It ended with Gordon, the points leader, scoring his 89th career Sprint Cup victory.
