NASCAR comes back to Kansas City for one of its two races at Kansas Speedway this year. This one is a night race for the Go Bowling 400.

Tonight’s race figures to be an exciting one. For whatever reason, night races seem to bring out a little something extra in drivers. Hopefully that holds true for the thousands of fans that will fill out the stands and infield at Kansas Speedway.

It’s still early in the NASCAR season, but we are already seeing some tight races develop, as well as some big storylines. Of course, there may not be a bigger story in NASCAR right now than the feud between Joey Logano and Kyle Busch that came to blows just a couple weeks ago. Both racers have a successful history at this track, so that will very likely come into play.

In terms of standings, fans are being treated to a very good match up at the top. Brad Keselowski and Jimmy Johnson have both secured a pair of early wins this year. Many would expect the five-time champion Jimmy Johnson to hold the edge there. However, it is Keselowski who has been dominating the field this year.
