How did the NASCAR Cup race play at Kansas Speedway?

It’s worth noting that the Kansas Speedway authorities have a special honor planned. Here, there was a display of dog tags from every single service member who has joined the armed forces since 9/11. Coming to the race itself, it was Bubba Wallace who came out victorious. This time, he was driving the #45 car, having swapped his #23 car for the #45 car. This move was to make sure the #45 car had a chance to accumulate points in the Owener Championship fight.
