Hornaday Wins Another Pole
“This is a good track,” said Hornaday. “Not many tracks give awards for the pole, but Kansas’ goes out of its way.”
As for the pole award, Hornaday had a little fun with Kansas Speedway’s signature pedal car award.
“I’ve got five grandkids and three pedal cars,” he said. “I’ve got to win two more poles and then the grandkids can race.”
Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter will both try to earn their first Kansas Speedway win in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 250.
“This is one of my favorite track,” said Crafton. “The track keeps getting better with age and the racing tomorrow should be good.”
Sauter echoed Crafton’s sentiments.
“I feel really good about tomorrow,” said Sauter. “The racing should be good and if you remain in the top five throughout the day, you have a legitimate shot at winning.”
For rookie Austin Dillon tomorrow’s race will be his first at Kansas Speedway, where he rolls off fifth.
“I really like this track,” said Dillon. “It’s fast and I’m looking forward to the race.”
The O’Reilly Auto Parts 250 starts at Noon tomorrow (May 2) and country music star Pat Green will entertain fans with a pre-race concert starting at 10:30 AM.
