KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Matt Kenseth captured his second straight race at Kansas Speedway, holding off Kasey Kahne to become the third consecutive Sprint Cup driver to win from the pole.

Kenseth won the race off pit road after taking two tires under caution with 47 laps to go, and a No. 20 Toyota that had been strong all day slowly pulled away.

Kahne trimmed into the lead once he moved into second, but Kenseth managed to block every move he tried to make.
