NASCAR fantasy picks for Kansas: Three to watch

20 May 2017, 01:15 | Andy Ferguson

On Friday, Blaney claimed his first career pole. What was different Saturday night in the Sunflower State was that he led the most important lap and that being the final one.

INDYCAR: Will Power and Helio Castroneves are turning IndyCar qualifying into a two-man race.

After leading 104 on the night, Truex out-drove Ryan Blaney and Kevin Harvick on the final restart but it was Brad Keselowski who finished second.

A lot of signs point to Busch, but until a Gibbs vehicle actually gets it done, we won't look to them for a victory. "Pretty awesome, awesome day, awesome weekend". "That's where this team deserves to be, and that's where they hopefully will stay". "We finally got the Chevrolet running well, not to where we needed to be, but better from how we started the race. It seems like every time things are going better and something happens, I get crashed or am in a crash". "We just kept fighting and made it happen".

There was nothing that could doom Truex, and the team certainly celebrated the win. The caution flag waved a track-record 15 times on Saturday night and the No. 78 team was flawless on almost every stop. He also won at Las Vegas. Seven of those wins have come with Truex behind the wheel. I hope it was just a safety precaution to get him out on a stretcher. "It's just wonderful. It's awesome". Suarez, the first Mexican-born driver with a regular ride in the Cup Series, is 22nd in the standings with seventh-place finishes at Phoenix and California.

The victory also means Truex currently has the most playoff points of anyone in NASCAR right now.

Oh, and don't expect Truex and the No. 78 team to slow down any time soon.

Having led 518 laps at the track coming into the night, he finished 14th a year ago at Kansas when a bolt that holds the brake rotor ended up breaking.

Indiana Unemployment Rate Lowest Since Early 2001
Gioia said CT has added 5,500 jobs since April 2016, the slowest year-over-year growth of the entire New England region. The same could be true for the April data, but according to Barewicz it's too soon to know if that's the case.

Lima-Marin's attorney Kimberly Diego says Lima-Marin came to the USA from Cuba at the age of 2 during the 1980 Mariel boatlift. Cuba agrees to consider taking back Cubans slated for deportation from the US on a case-by-case basis.

Five things to watch as China's belt and road plan unfolds
The two countries are already collaborating in infrastructure development in northeast India and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. China is trying to convince those nations to make its project a grand success.

As Joey Logano and Danica Patrick were racing through Turns 1 and 2, battling for the 12th position, Logano's No. 22 Ford suddenly snapped to the left, turning Patrick's No. 10 Ford hard into the outside wall.

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

The crash began when a mechanical failure believed to be a broken right-front brake rotor caused Logano's auto to veer into Patrick's No. 10 Ford, sending her head-on into the outside Turn 2 wall.

Patrick's vehicle erupted in flames, and she and Logano rode the outside wall until, a moment later, Aric Almirola's No. 43 Ford barreled into the wreck. The accident created a 27-minute red flag while safety crews cut through the roof of Almirola's auto to extract him before he was airlifted to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Indeed, Furniture Row Racing has earned just about everything it has gotten. "Everything was fine and then it took a hard one", Logano said. "That's the last thing you want to see". It's unfortunate for everyone. He has an average finish of 16.8 at this track and a driver rating of 95.7. It was Kyle Busch's second stage win of the season, but his first since the season-opening Daytona 500 in February.

As for Patrick's response to the scary scene, well, it was something. "I kind of felt like Wonder Woman (one of her sponsors) for a little while".

Matt Kenseth has 15/1 odds to win tonight, but I think he has some good value there. I am just frustrated for the lack of breaks I get.
