Matt Kenseth Wins Wreck-Filled Hollywood Casino 400 At Kansas Speedway

There has been a lot of talk about the new paving on the Kansas Speedway, and Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 showed why. The race featured a Kansas Speedway record 14 cautions for 63 laps, and was eventually won by Matt Kenseth.

The Speedway’s new revamped conditions, which feature more steep variable banking, has become the talk of the racing world this morning in the aftermath of a race filled with cautions and accidents. Many cars had tire problems that led to cautions, while other cars spun out on the tracks fast surface.

Kenseth won the race despite driving a damaged car, as he banged his Ford into the wall halfway through the race. Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the race, and Paul Menard finished third. Clint Bowyer, the crowd favorite from Emporia, finished sixth and is fourth in the Chase standings. Chase leader Brad Keselowski was able to avoid all of the accidents and finish the race, and he still leads Jimmie Johnson by seven points in the Sprint Cup standings.

While the fast conditions and wrecks grabbed most of the headlines, Danica Patrick found a way to steal some of the spotlight. Patrick spun Landon Cassill on purpose after Cassill angered Patrick by bumping her earlier in the race.

Those who made it out to the Kansas Speedway saw what was one of the most entertaining NASCAR races in recent memory. To put into contrast how crazy yesterday’s race was, just look at the STP 400, which was the final race on the Speedway’s old surface. The STP 400 had only three cautions, while the Casino 400 more than tripled that.

Will drivers be able to adjust to the new conditions at the Speedway, or are Kansas City racing fans in line to see more races like Sunday’s?

Hollywood Casino Kansas City

Kansas City will be adding yet another casino in early 2012 when the Hollywood Casino opens up at the Kansas Speedway. Penn National Gaming, Inc. has been taking over and opening new casinos all across the United States, mostly building casinos in poor ghetto neighborhoods (i.e. Kansas City, Kansas) and Hollywood Casino will be yet another link in Penn National Gaming's chain. The Hollywood Casino 400 race is an advertising ploy to introduce the new casino's presence in Kansas City.
