The Latest: Hamlin wins chaotic NASCAR elimination race
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The Latest on the NASCAR Cup Series elimination race at Kansas Speedway (all times local):
Elliott managed to finish second and advanced to the round of eight on points when Brad Keselowski, whom he’d been dueling with all afternoon, got boxed in on the restart and lost too many spots.
In a bit of irony, it was Keselowski who helped bring out the caution on the first try of the green-white-checkered finish when he got into Daniel Suarez. The field was nearing the start-finish line but the caution light came on before the leader took the white flag, forcing a second overtime.
