Truex leads Sprint Cup race back to green after rain delay

The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Martin Truex Jr. led the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway back to green Saturday night after a band of rain forced the race to be delayed by 2 hours, 16 minutes.

The race was halted with 169 laps left just after a caution came out for Jeb Burton, who got loose and slid sideways for the second time. Most leaders went to the pits, but many drivers who were a lap down remained on the track to get back on the lead lap.

Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Larson rounded out the top five.

Pole-sitter Joey Logano, who had been running near the front, was shuffled to the back due to a penalty for one of his crew members going over the pit wall early.
