After a rain-delayed start to the race, the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) drivers took to the track for the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway. Austin Dillon won the race, his sixth victory of the season, but that’s not what everyone will be talking about after this one. Here’s what some of the drivers had to say following the race.

What the drivers said

There were some very different opinions from the drivers after the race at Kansas. Some thought that it was a great race, while others thought that it was just an okay race. Regardless, there were some good things that came out of it. Let’s take a look at what the drivers had to say.

Brad Keselowski

“I was just really proud of my team. I thought we had a great pit stop at the end that got us out in front, and then we just had to hold on. This is definitely a track position kind of race, and I was able to get out in front and stay there.”

Joey Logano

After starting second and leading 54 laps, Logano was happy with his car but noted that the Stewart-Haas Racing Fords were tough to beat.

“We had a great Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang,” said Logano. “I thought we were as good as the 4 (Harvick) at times, but those guys have been on a tear lately. We gave them everything we had, just came up a little bit short.”

Chase Elliott

Chase Elliott may have gotten his first NASCAR Cup Series victory Sunday at Kansas Speedway, but the win was far from easy.

elliott had to hold off a hard-charging Kevin Harvick in the closing laps of the race, and did so despite having a slower car than the Stewart-Haas Racing driver.

“My car wasn’t very good on restarts,” Elliott said. “I was really struggling with forward drive off of Turn 2 and got wheel-hopped bad one time and just about went around. So, I just had to be really, really careful on those restarts and just try to maintain what I could and not make any mistakes.”

Elliott was able to make it to the finish line first, though, and is now qualified for the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.

Denny Hamlin

Denny Hamlin’s car wasn’t quite as good as it needed to be Sunday at Kansas Speedway, but the driver of the No. 11 Toyota still managed a top-10 finish.

Hamlin started the race in 16th place and worked his way up to 10th by the time the checkered flag flew.

“We were just off a little bit,” Hamlin said after the race. “Not quite where we needed to be, but we’ll take it.”


After a tough day of racing at Kansas, the drivers had a lot to say. Here’s what they had to conclusion:

“It was a tough day out there.” – Kyle Busch

“We just couldn’t quite get it done.” – Kevin Harvick

“We’ll regroup and come back stronger next week.” – Chase Elliott
