Confident Truex on pole in Kansas
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Martin Truex Jr. already looks like the coolest cat at the club, with his shades and scruff and disarming smile, yet he has even more reason to be relaxed and confident at Kansas Speedway this weekend.
Start with the fact that he's already clinched a spot in the next round of NASCAR's playoffs with his win at Charlotte. Brad Keselowski is also assured of advancing through the round of 12 after Sunday's race, but former champs such as Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch are on the bubble.
Then consider the fact that Truex always runs well at intermediate tracks, finishing in the top 10 in his last five starts with a trio of victories. He's especially good at Kansas, where he routinely runs up front and exorcised some bad luck with a victory in May.
