For moment #2, we go back to Sept. 28, 2008.

With Jimmie Johnson leading on the final lap heading into Turn 4, Missouri native Carl Edwards decided he needed to try something he had done in a video game – a bonzai-move where he would use his momentum to lightly hit the wall and slingshot to the lead. Unfortunately for Edwards, who was looking to get his first win at his home track, the move didn’t go exactly as planned as he hit the wall harder than anticipated and finished second to Johnson.

It was definitely a move that gets revisited each time the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns to Kansas Speedway as Edwards is still looking for that first Cup win at Kansas.

Don’t miss any of the moments at Kansas Speedway as racing returns this October with the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season finale (Full Throttle S’loonshine 98.9) on Oct. 16, the NASCAR XFINITY Series (Kansas Lottery 300) on Oct. 17, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (Hollywood Casino 400, the fifth race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup) on Oct. 18, and tickets are currently on sale.

Parking is always free at Kansas Speedway and fans can bring in one 14x14x14-inch soft-sided cooler with their favorite food and beverages.
