(KANSAS CITY, KS) Kansas Speedway is one of the newest speedways in the United States but in it’s short time has already produced several great racing moments. The 1.5 mile sister track to Chicagoland Speedway features steeper banking and a tighter backstretch section. The field of 40 was set to hit the heartland’s high banks for the Glass Door Brewing 200.
Alex Giese won the Midwest Simulations Spotlights Pole and led the field to the green in the #77 but dropped back quickly. A lap one caution damaged several of the top championship contenders as Mitch Brown and James Lorello made contact that triggered a chain reaction pile up. Jordan Harnish led the field back to green but was passed a short time later by Greg Evans.
Chris Stofer took the lead under a round of green flag pit stops at lap 52 and held the lead for a several lap before Evans once again regained the lead.
A caution on lap 93 brought the field back together and pit stops before the race went back green. Chris Stofer once again took the lead and held it through the lap 104 caution. Stofer held the lead until just under 20 laps to go when Evan’s reclaimed the top spot in the #83 Camaro.
Evans would lead to the checkered flag to take the victory in the Glass Door Brewing 200 followed by Stofer, Allan Young in third. Ty Hester and Jarred Haggerty rounded out the top five.
John Jenkins retook the championship lead from Mitch Brown,after Brown had a rough event. Greg Evans moved into third in the overall championship standings.
