Stenhouse steals series- best 6th win at Kansas
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. came back from two laps down Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race at Kansas Speedway.
The race was extended six laps because of a late caution, which helped Stenhouse grab his series-leading sixth win of the season because the cars in front of him didn’t have enough gas to make it to the finish.
Sam Hornish Jr. ran out of fuel before the planned restart, which extended the caution period another lap. As the field came to the green, Paul Menard ran out gas.
Kyle Busch then pulled away from the field, but his tank ran dry as he exited the third turn of the final lap.
Stenhouse, who had lined up in fourth on the restart, zipped past for the victory.
