Harvick Makes Late Race Pass To Win Wild KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas

It shouldn’t come to a shock at all that Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. finished 1-2 in Saturday night’s KC Masterpiece 400 at the Kansas Speedway. After all, both have by far been the top two drivers on 1.5-mile tracks over the last few years. But, the big story is how they got there. Harvick passed Truex for the lead coming to the white flag and never looked back en route to his 42nd career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win. It was his 14th on a 1.5-mile track…

NASCAR laid the gauntlet down on several teams in not just the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Wednesday afternoon, but also a couple of NASCAR XFINITY Series teams as well. It’s just another possible mark on the sport to why things are getting out of control. The cheating, and I do mean cheating, has to stop.
