NASCAR Cup Series Advent Health 400 will feature eight past race winners among its field of 36 starters Sunday.
Overall, 32 points-paying Cup races have been held at the 1.5-mile speedway, dating back to the first race in 2001. In 2011, the speedway began hosting two races annually.
3 WINS: Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano
Hamlin first won at the speedway in 2012 and most recently picked up a Kansas victory in July 2020.
Harvick is one of two drivers to start every Cup race at Kansas Speedway. Kurt Busch is the other but he has never won at Kansas, while Harvick has won three times.
Harvick’s three wins came in 2013, 2016 and 2018 respectively. The 2014 Cup champion has earned a top-5 finish in each of the last four Kansas races.
Logano has 25 starts at Kansas and his first Kansas win came in Oct. 2014 – his 11th start at the track. He also won the Oct. 2015 and Oct. 2020 races at Kansas.
2 WINS: Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr.,
Busch’s two Kansas wins have each come in the May race – in 2016 and 2021.
Keselowski’s two wins have also come in the spring race, most recently in May 2019 and the first in June 2011.
Truex’s wins were a clean sweep, as earned both Kansas wins during his championship-winning season in 2017.
1 WIN: Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson
The two most-recent NASCAR Cup Series champions have each picked up one victory at the 1.5-mile track.
Elliott won in Oct. 2018 and Larson won the most recent Kansas race, in Oct. 2021.
The Advent Health 400 is Sunday, May 15, at 3 p.m. ET. The race will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 – and can be heard live on MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Ch. 90.
