Dodges two top Sprint Cup drivers held their own in Sundays Price Chopper 400 at Kansas Speedway: 29th race in the 09 Series, third in the end-of-season Chase. Kasey Kahne finished 6th and Kurt Busch 11th, after Tony Stewarts gutsy two-tire final pit shaved enough time to hold off Jeff Gordon and secure the win. (See the last laps here.)
Stewarts victory (his fourth this season) bumped Kurt down one spot in the standings to number 5, just 91 points off the lead with seven races to go; the series continues with the Pepsi 500 this Sunday, October 11, and finishes November 22 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
