  • Auto racing roundup: Blaney claims first pole

"It's always good to get a nice beer shower, 5-hour Energy and whatever else they're throwing on us, here", Truex said. It's just incredible. Awesome day, awesome weekend. "That's where this team deserves to be, and that's where they hopefully will stay".

"We just stuck with it all night". I get it. If you're off, you're off, but I watched my guys move the vehicle and adjust the auto accordingly for it and then actually overcompensate on it because we were anxious about not making it. One of these times, these accidents aren't going to be good for me. "We just kept fighting and made it happen".

Johnny Sauter avoided trouble all night to finish second and John Hunter Nemecheck was third, while Busch's teammate, Christopher Bell, rallied from a badly timed caution to finish fourth. "We were super-loose on a couple of restarts". A lot of us took a hard hit. We worked our way through it. He is second in the point standings right now. Joe Gibbs Racing was unable to keep up with adjustments through the race's 15 caution flags.

The race resumed after a red flag of 27 minutes.

NASCAR stopped the race while safety workers cut the roof off Almirola's Fusion and extricated him from the auto.

Logano and Patrick were treated and released from the infield care center, while Almirola was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center. I hope Aric is alright.

"You can see the right front (tire) popped", Logano added as he watched a video replay. "Something broke in our auto". I noticed it as I was trying to go in (to Turn 1). I tried to back it off but you're going 215 [mph] and it's hard to check up. He restarted third and had the lead again within a lap. Former Chesterfield resident Denny Hamlin is seventh. "I think that it says a lot about this team to go out and lead some laps and go have a shot at winning races".

"We ran with the best tonight", said Rhodes, who blamed a piece of debris that went through his radiator for the engine blowing up.

"Our Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota was really fast, but if we didn't get the lead on the restarts, it probably took us at least 20 laps to get good enough to pass those guys for the lead".

"I felt we had the best auto for 15, 20 laps", Blaney said. It kind of stinks. "I knew I had to go, I knew I had to make it happen".

Rhode Island's unemployment rate remains steady at 4.3 percent
Over the two months taken together, the majority of the new jobs were full time - 62,400 versus 35,000 part time. The largest job growth sector, with 1,200 new jobs, was education and health services.

But Truex increased his lead on the final restart ahead of Blaney, who was passed by Keselowski and Kevin Harvick with a lap remaining. Kyle Busch rounded out the top five.

Kyle Busch picked up right where he left off in the Truck Series at Kansas Speedway.

Blaney was the leader at the end of stage two at lap 160 with Kyle Larson second and Truex third at the end of the second 80-lap stage. He already has two wins this season, at Texas and Bristol. The strategy didn't work for Dillon as he drifted back on the restart and eventually spun, but it did for Harvick.

A few traditional frontrunners struggled through the first two stages of the race.

"It's fairly disappointing that they can't present their cars to pass inspection", Miller said of the cars that failed.

"I don't know what lies in all of that, but I'm not the best at qualifying anyway", Johnson said, "so this takes all the pressure off of me and my job".

Harvick led the field to green on Lap 55 with Ty Dillon alongside.

"The greedy side of me is angry that you can be that close to a pole and not get it", Logano said. "It was vibrating really bad. It puts us back to where we need to be for sure". "It just didn't like up for us, there, at the end". Busch also won Friday night's Camping World Truck Series race and has a track-most seven wins at Kansas Speedway - one in Cup, four in the Xfinity Series and two in the trucks. Twelve drivers failed to make qualifying attempts Friday as a result of not getting through pre-qualifying inspection in time to do so. From there, the driver of the No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford found himself one of the main players throughout Saturday night's race.

Long returned to NASCAR's top series this weekend after an eight-year banishment over an unpaid fine from a rules infraction earlier in his career. And after so many fits at Kansas Speedway, Truex and the Furniture Row Racing team had finally found their way to victory lane. With 67 laps remaining, it appeared it would be a race between Blaney and Truex, a race between a driver looking to earn his first NASCAR Cup win and a driver looking for his ninth and who has enjoyed the best stretch of his career since 2015. Keselowski, 33, won the inaugural spring race at Kansas Speedway in 2011. Neither driver has won in 2017.
