CONCORD, N.C. – With just two races left in the NASCAR Cup Series Round of 8, Hendrick Motorsports looks to add on to its impressive record at Kansas Speedway this Sunday.
Kyle Larson already secured his spot in the Championship 4 race after winning last Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway but plans to try and earn his ninth points-paying win when he starts from the pole at the Kansas venue.
Chase Elliott will look to extend his recent success at Kansas after he finished fifth at the track in May. Overall, Elliott has one win (October 2018) and five top-five finishes in 11 Cup starts at Kansas.
William Byron has collected one top-five finish and four top-10s in his last four appearances at the track and Alex Bowman will look back on his 2020 performance at the 1.5-mile venue to build momentum. The 28-year-old driver secured an eighth-place finish in July 2020 and a third-place result in October.
