Weather History at Kansas

Kansas Speedway has never had a Cup Series race postponed by rain, but it has had a rain-shortened race. This came in the fall of 2007 when two thunderstorms caused two red flags, and the race was forced to be shortened to 210 laps due to impending darkness. Greg Biffle won the race in a controversial fashion after running out of fuel coming to get the checkered flag.

Last year, the Xfinity Series race was stopped after only 93 of 200 laps had been completed because of rain. The reason the race ended so soon was because stage two ended after lap 90, and that meant that the race was an official race. Noah Gragson took home the win despite Ty Gibbs leading 66 of the 93 laps run.

It seems that the weather this weekend should be perfect for those going to the track at Kansas. Thankfully, Kansas’ solid weather streak seems will continue.
