Kansas Speedway will be packed tonight as the Sprint Car gang is in town for the 5 Hour Energy 400

It will be a Mother’s Day eve showdown tonight as the NASCAR Sprint Cup gang heads to Kansas  Speedway for the  5-Hour Energy 400, on the 1.5 mile oval. The race can be seen at 7:30 p.m. ET on Fox, radio on MRN and streamed on Fox 2 GO, so fans will have plenty of access.

 Just two drivers have multiple wins, with both Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick claiming a couple of checkered flags thus far. But the 10th race of the season saw Denny Hamlin take his first victory of the season. To be honest this is looking like one of the best and most open season’s thus far with plenty of names that could be headed to Victory Lane at the end of tonight’s big race.

 Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon and even Jimmie Johnson all have to be considered as favorites at this beautiful race track in Kansas City. A quick look at the weather shows that things should be fine for racing with temperatures in the high 70′s Saturday evening with a 40% chance of rain in the area around Sprint cup race time.
