Kenseth involved in crash in NASCAR return

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP/WKOW) -- Kevin Harvick passed Martin Truex Jr. with one lap to go to win Saturday night's race at Kansas Speedway, his fifth win in what has turned out to be a dominant start to the season.

Harvick qualified on the pole and ran near the front all night, escaping all the trouble caused by a couple of late-race cautions. He was fifth after a restart with 10 laps to go, but rode four fresh tires to second place, then swung past Truex at the start-finish line to take the lead.

Truex finished second after winning both races at Kansas last year. Joey Logano was third, Kyle Larson rallied from a late crash to finish fourth and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.

Cambridge's Matt Kenseth was involved in the crash late in the race.  He was not injured, but finished the race 36th.  This was his return to NASCAR after being dropped by Joe Gibbs Racing after last season.  He shares the Roush-Fenway 6 car with Trevor Bayne.
