The Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway is the 30th race on the 2013
Sprint Cup Series schedule. It's also the fourth in the 10-race Chase.
Construction of Kansas Speedway began in 1999. The first races at this 1.5-
mile racetrack -- ARCA Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West events -- were
held on the same day on June 2, 2001.
During the 2012 NASCAR season, between the April and October race weekends,
this track was repaved and variable banking was added in the turns. The
banking in all four corners varies from 17-20 degrees. There is 10 degrees of
banking on the frontstretch and 5 degrees on the backstretch. The length of
the frontstretch is 2,685 feet, and the backstretch is 2,207 feet long.
There have been 15 Sprint Cup races held at Kansas, including one event per
season from 2001-2010 and two each year since then. The series most recently
competed there in April.
Nine drivers have competed in each of the previous 15 races at Kansas: Jeff
Burton, Kurt Busch, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Bobby Labonte,
Mark Martin, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart. Labonte and Stewart are not on the
entry list for this event. Stewart is sidelined for the remainder of the
season due to a leg injury. A.J. Allmendinger is driving the No. 47 car in
place of Labonte this weekend.
Gordon won the inaugural Sprint Cup race at Kansas, the Protection One 400, on
Sept. 30, 2001.
Five drivers have two victories at Kansas: Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson,
Gordon, Kenseth and Stewart. Kenseth has won the last two races there. No
driver has yet to win three times at this track.
Rick Hendrick and Jack Roush share the record for most car owner wins at
Kansas with four each. Joe Gibbs is next in line with three victories.
Gordon has the most top-5 finishes at Kansas with eight, and Johnson's 12
top-10s there is tops among all drivers.
Johnson and Kasey Kahne have the most poles at Kansas with three each.
The race winner at Kansas has started from the pole position three times: Joe
Nemechek (2004), Johnson (2008) and Kenseth (April 2013).
The closest margin of victory in a Cup race at Kansas occurred in October 2004
when Nemechek beat Ricky Rudd to the finish line by just 0.081 seconds.
Denny Hamlin and Austin Dillon are those drivers who made their first career
Sprint Cup starts at Kansas. Hamlin made his debut there on Oct. 9, 2005,
while Dillon's first start came on Oct. 9, 2011.
No driver has scored his or her first race or pole win at Kansas.
Newman holds the record as the youngest driver to win a race at Kansas. He
took the checkered flag there on Oct. 5, 2003 when he was 25 years, 9 months
and 27 days old. When Mark Martin was 46 years and 9 months old, he became the
oldest driver to win at this track on Oct. 9, 2005.
Round 5 in the championship Chase is the Oct. 12 Bank of America 500 at
Charlotte Motor Speedway. Clint Bowyer is the defending race winner.
