THINGS WE LEARNED AT KANSAS

THINGS WE LEARNED AT KANSAS

1. Cheering over

If you recall, Joey Logano was released by Joe Gibbs Racing a few years back and was replaced by Matt Kenseth, who said he has cheered for the young driver ever since the switch. Those days came to smoke-plume end after Logano spun the veteran and claimed the Kansas victory.

2. Kenseth says

Kenseth made several memorable comments after Sunday’s race, but this one sounded like a line from “The Godfather.” Said Kenseth: “He’ll probably sleep good tonight. I hope he enjoys that one. It’s not what I would have done, but he had a decision to make and that’s the one he made.”

3. No wiggle room

When somebody told Kurt Busch, who finished sixth on Sunday, he was only 13 points up on the ninth-place driver in the Chase, he was in dismay.

“This competition, you can’t get a spot on anybody and you can’t give up a spot,” he said.

“Plus-13 is not very exciting.”

Matt Kenseth was four laps from winning Kansas. Instead, he got dumped by Joey Logano, who went on to victory, his second triumph in Chase Round 2. Kenseth said he lost respect for Logano, which means the driver of the No. 22 Ford needs to watch his mirrors the next few weeks for that other yellow stock car. TODD WARSHAW/GETTY IMAGES
