NASCAR will race under the lights as the Monster Energy Cup Series stops at Kansas Speedway for the Digital Ally 400 on Saturday, May 11. This will be the first of two visits to the Sunflower State, as the series will return in October for a playoff race.
After starting the season 0-for, Stewart-Haas Racing took the top four spots in qualifying. With Penske and Joe Gibbs Racing dominating the point standings, can SHR finally break through and pick up some much-needed momentum as it heads into its All-Star break?

One of the biggest surprises of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been Stewart-Haas Racing pitching a victory lane shutout. Ford's best team throughout most of 2018, an organization that put 100 percent of its four-car operation in the final eight of the NASCAR playoffs, has started the year an awkward 0-for-11.
The Kansas race Saturday night is a chance for SHR to get on track heading into NASCAR's All-Star Break. The team brought a little extra to single-car qualifying, sweeping the top four spots to earn precious track position with NASCAR's passing-at-a-premium new handling package.
No one in racing likes to run second and this group has spent the entire year a step behind.
Saturday night is their best chance this year to step up.
