Kevin Harvick won the 2018 All-Star Race! Is there anything he can't win right now?

Entry Race Recap:
•Aric #Almirola led the majority of Stage 1, but quickly dropped as Alex #Bowman rocketed to the front. Erik #Jones and Paul #Menard looked very strong right behind Bowman, but Bowman ended up winning the stage and locking up a spot in the main event.
•On the restart, Daniel #Suarez powered to the point. Later, Suarez held off Chase #Elliott and AJ #Allmendinger to win the stage and compete in the All-Star race.
•In the final stage, Darrell #Wallace Jr. took the lead. Behind him, Elliott, Jones, and Allmendinger battled hard. Eventually, Allmendinger took the lead after fantastic racing and won the stage and the entry.
•Chase Elliott won the fan vote.

All-Star Race Recap:
•To begin the race, Matt #Kenseth fastly fell from 1st. His overtaker, Kevin #Harvick, checked out. Martin #Truex Jr and Kyle #Busch battled for 2nd, but neither could could get a run on Harvick.
•In the Stage 2 beginning, Busch took the lead on pit road. The restart involved Busch beating Truex to the point. Then, Busch led the rest of the stage as Suarez, Kyle #Larson, and Truex battled for the top spots.
•After the Stage 3 restart, Truex clawed by Brad #Keselowski for the lead before Kasey #Kahne slammed the wall, bringing out the caution. From there, Truex again got by Keselowski as Larson and Joey #Logano lightly challenged. Then, Bowman spun into the wall with 2 laps to go, sending the stage into overtime. Larson, Suarez, and some other leaders stayed off of pit road, and Suarez won the top spot on the restart, but Truex, Busch, Keselowski, and others wrecked. Finally, Harvick gunned to the front and won Stage 3, beating Suarez and Larson.
•The final stage, which was only 10 laps, started with Harvick jumping to a strong lead over Suarez. With 3 to go, Logano dumped Larson after Larson put him in the wall. On the final restart, Harvick got pushed by Logano to retain his lead, and he never looked back.

Results: 4, 19, 22, 11, 9, 48, 42, 47, 18, 95

Big news in NASCAR as Matt Kenseth, in just his second qualifying day and second race weekend since returning to MENCS competition, has won the pole for tomorrow night's race, the #2018 All-Star Race!

He along with two other drivers will try to race their way into the All-Star race by winning one of the three stages in the 70 lap Open. While a fourth, if not Almirola himself, will be voted in by the fans.

Back in the saddle 😎

#kenseth #nascar

A little #flashbackfriday to the last time Matt Kenseth and Roush Fenway raced together at Kansas Speedway. Back in 2012, Kenseth would survive a crazy race and win the 2012 Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas. This would be his first win at Kansas, his third and final win of 2012, and his last victory with Roush Fenway. Kenseth would actually go on to win two consecutive Kansas races, as the next year in 2013 he would win the spring race at Kansas Speedway, then with Joe Gibbs. A good way to start off this awesome Friday and weekend filled with racing. Kenseth also returns to racing for the first time since Homestead 2017, returning with his former team Roush Fenway, the team he won twenty-four Cup races, the 2003 Cup championship, and the 2009 and 2012 Daytona 500 with. Can Kenseth and Roush Fenway find the magic again this weekend at Kansas Speedway, in his return to NASCAR? Or later on this season? Time to see as the first practice session is currently underway, and the #6 Wyndham Rewards Ford Fusion of Matt Kenseth has yet to practice. Hope you enjoyed this #fridayflashback, next we'll be releasing our #highperformancedriver racing schedule to watch for this weekend's racing action!

Anyone who knows me.. knows I’m a huge @mattkenseth fan! So I am extremely happy he is racing again! Back home with @roushfenway. 🍻 #roushmakingnascargreatagain

Roush Fenway made their upcoming driver change official yesterday during the Wednesday press conference. There and then it was announced that 2003 @nascar cup series champion would be taking over the #6 Ford Fusion for set amount of races this #2018 season, starting in two weeks when the series goes to Kansas. He'll be sharing driver duties with Trevor Bayne, both serving as part-time drivers for the remainder of the season. Though the racing team made it clear that Kenseth's participation was to make both the team, car, and drivers Stenhouse and Bayne better, the true direction Roush is going with this change is yet to be known. At the meeting, the team and Kenseth unveiled their new paint scheme and sponsorship/partnership with Wyndham. Looks good! Will we see Kenseth bring the car to victory lane?

Throwback Thursday! Finally pulled the trigger on this little guy. 1998 Bill Elliott Get Back With Big Mac McDonalds Taurus. Bill was supposed to run this car at the fall race in Dover but had to miss the race due to the passing of his Father. His substitute driver making his first cup start that day? Matt Kenseth. I was at that race, so I thought it would be a great car to have in the collection. Awesome awesome packing as well. Wish there was still more of this! #nascar #winston #cup #racing #series #bill #elliott #awesomebillfromdawsonville #matt #kenseth #94 #mcdonalds #bigmac #ford #fordracing #taurus #diecast #model #racecar #racingchampions #dover #debut #tiedye #monstermile #memorabilia #collection #display

A big happy birthday to Hall of Fame CB Rod Woodson, NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth, and former NBA player Kwame Brown! #HappyBirthday #RodWoodson #Kenseth #KwameBrown

Rules Change! Once again NASCAR is changing the rules, this time on one that didn't make sense in the first place... Last year too many men over the wall on pit road equaled a park the car penalty for the team as we seen with Matt Kenseth at Kansas in October. This season the driver will be penalized with a 2 lap penalty.
Also being changed is the 5 minute repair clock, teams will gain an extra minute this season with NASCAR upping it to 6 minutes.
Lastly NASCAR is shortening the first round of qualifying from 20 minutes to 15.
What do you think of the changes in rules?
