Ryan Blaney to start last at Kansas after qualifying time disallowed

Share

Now, he'll have the prime pit position for its first race.

On Friday, FRR's Martin Truex Jr. delighted the "home folks" by winning the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Cup race at Kansas. The paper clip-like geometry of that track makes stall selection arguably the biggest advantage of any track all season.

"It's pretty common now", McMurray said when asked if he was nervous about making it through inspection in time.

Truex has dominated at Kansas Speedway for years, only for bad luck to conspire against him. It's a pole that follows his win at the Kansas 1.5-mile oval last May.

"It's been pretty awful lately", he said, sarcastically.

"We'll go back to work tomorrow and we know a few things we need to do different to get us more like we were here in the spring". But Blaney's auto failed post-qualifying inspection when the package tray did not maintain its original shape, which means he will start 40th.

Ryan Blaney, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin round out the top five in the final race of the Round of 12.

Non-playoff participants Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones qualified sixth and seventh while Busch, who needs to move up at least one spot to advance in the playoffs, qualified eighth and Jamie McMurray and Emporia native Clint Bowyer rounded out the top 10.

"I think every time we come here it feels good just because of the fact that we've run so well here and qualified well and today was the same result", Harvick said.

"Qualifying, as we all know, isn't my sweet spot and I'm trying so hard to get better at that".

Several drivers were white-knuckling it around Kansas Speedway with wind whipping up to 35 miles per hour, and Harvick said a bobble caused by a bad gust may have cost him the pole.

For the NASCAR Cup Series races this weekend and next, Kyle Busch is seriously going all-out for Halloween. "We said coming into the playoffs that we have to try to just be who we are, play to our strengths and do things the way we know how to do them".
