Matt Kenseth won the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. The win is the fourth of the year for Kenseth, the most in the series this year.
Dale Earnhardt Jr qualified on the pole but had to wait until Sunday afternoon to take the green flag as rain cancelled the race on Saturday night. Carl Edwards would quickly take the lead from Earnhardt and led the field down pit road for a competition caution on lap 25.
On lap 48 Kurt Busch made contact with Brad Keselowski spinning him to bring out a red flag. Also damaged in the accident were Greg Biffle, Paul Menard, Dave Blaney and Travis Kvapil.
With 26 laps to go Brian Vickers lost a right front tire hitting the wall and bringing everyone down pit road for final pitstops under caution. Kenseth would beat Johnson off pit road after taking no tires. Johnson would lose control of his car entering turn one on the restart spinning and bringing out another caution.
Kenseth would set sail finishing ahead of Jamie McMurray and Clint Bowyer.
Kentucky also marked the end of Bobby Labonte’s 704 consecutive race streak, the second longest active streak behind Jeff Gordon.
