Matt Kenseth out at Joe Gibbs Racing — NASCAR notebook

Keselowski comments after Kentucky wreck

The caution came out and we were debating on whether to pit or not, said Blaney.

There are few places that we come to on the NASCAR circuit that have less drama than the Kentucky Speedway.

The race has been rescheduled for noon Saturday as part of a doubleheader with the Monster Energy Cup Series Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts. In six years of Cup racing at Kentucky, we have only had three winners. The focus turned from the track to the seven campgrounds around the track, and to making sure everyone took cover. Its location shifts from week to week, and it's almost never in a spot where grandstands are located. The driver of the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing has been with the team since 2013 but is winless in what's been a difficult year.

Earlier in the day, the Kentucky Speedway and Quaker State signed an extension of their sponsorship deal through 2022.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. qualified 13th for his final Kentucky start and seemed fine with that after struggling early on. With a proven track record like that, why would you bet against him?

The postponement of the Xfinity race means that Busch will spend a lot of time in a race car today.

And winning gives you the biggest boost in playoff points. This event could be an opportunity for Kyle Busch to score a victory, but Brad Keselowski also has a strong history at this site.

Local driver Ben Rhodes (27) from Louisville treated the home crowd to a win in Stage one.

Scott and Sean Engel analyze the DFS NASCAR field for the Quaker State 400. The downside with this trio is that these three drivers are also three of the four most expensive options.

"Fan safety is our number one priority".

Get out the insurance cards, get out the co-pays. He can win at Kentucky. The No. 2 Team Penske car hasn't found that same level of success in 2017, but there's no reason he can't get there again.

"When you start racing this year, you kind of forget about last year". He is my bonus pick because I think his time is coming.

A Daytona wreck left Dillon's chances for a win in shambles Saturday night. Larson has recently won six sprint car races in a row on dirt tracks. Jimmie Johnson of Hendrick Motorsports is third with 203 laps led and Kevin Harvick of Stewart Haas is fourth with 128. Bowyer has proven he can race competitively on any type of track.

That hypothetical puts Truex ahead of Larson as the playoffs begin, no matter that he actually trails Larson by 18 series points as we head to Kentucky.
