When the curtain fell on Saturday night’s Digital Ally 400 at Kansas Speedway, seven Chevrolets—starting with runner-up Alex Bowman—were scored in the top 10, a high-water mark for the manufacturer this season.
Stage 2 winner Chase Elliott ran fourth and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, capped a late-race charge with a sixth-place result.
Chip Ganassi Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Kyle Larson came home seventh and eighth, respectively, and Tyler Reddick and Chris Buescher were ninth and 10th. It was the second Cup start for Reddick.
For Buescher, it was the second top 10 of the year and his best run since finishing ninth at Atlanta in February.
Race winner Brad Keselowski took note of the collective results of the Chevys and of Bowman’s third straight second-place run.
“Yeah, the 88 (Bowman) the last two weeks has looked very, very strong,” Keselowski said. “He looked when I was behind him here today, very, very strong. I think they’re definitely starting to hit their stride, for sure, and we can’t let our guard down.”
