Sprint Cup: Kenseth determined to finish tenure at Roush Fenway Racing on a high note (+results)

Nationwide: Stenhouse rallies for improbable win at Kansas  (+results)

NASCAR logoKansas SpeedwayFolks who use the words “lame” or “duck” in any sentences around the driver of crew of the No. 17 Ford team these days better be prepared to duck themselves. Ricky Stenhouse rallied from two laps down to win Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway and tighten the battle for the series championship.

But who really knew? Who knew driver Matt Kenseth and the rest of that team would come out swinging so hard in this Chase for the Sprint Cup — when Kenseth announced months ago that he was leaving the Roush Fenway Racing organization at the end of the season?

Kenseth knew, that’s who. And crew chief Jimmy Fennig, plus RFR director of competition Robbie Reiser, all of whom have long bristled at the notion that the No. 17 group would be any less fiery and competitive and focused down the stretch of their final season together.

Nationwide: Stenhouse rallies for improbable win at Kansas

Ricky Stenhouse rallied from two laps down to win Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway and tighten the battle for the series championship.

During a green-white-checkered-flag finish that took the race six laps beyond its scheduled distance of 200 laps, Stenhouse surged to the front in the final turn after Kyle Busch ran out of fuel.

Austin Dillon ran second, .288 seconds behind Stenhouse. Pole-sitter Joey Logano finished third, followed by Elliott Sadler and Cole Whitt, respectively.
