Six races left, and the Chase for the Sprint Cup is shaping up nicely.
Jimmie Johnson dominated at Kansas, running up front most of the day and holding off Kasey Kahne on a green-white-checkered restart for the win. Brad Keselowski was third and Matt Kenseth fourth. Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick came on strong at the end to finish fifth and sixth respectively.
It all fell apart at the end for Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon. Stewart gave up track position for four tires on a late stop, then had trouble getting into his stall on the final stop. Gordon's engine blew to set up the GWC finish. (Race results)
