Kansas City Here NASCAR Comes

NASCAR is going bowling for Mother’s Day weekend.

FOX’s Chris Hoenig has more in our weekly NASCAR preview:

Saturday night, under the lights, it’s the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway, 267 laps around the mile-and-a-half tri-oval. The first stage will end after lap 80. The second after lap 160.

Aric Almirola will be without his crew chief, Drew Blickensderfer, who is serving the first of his three-race suspension for a failed post-race inspection at Talladega last week. Blickensderfer told FOX Sports that the margin of violation was equal to the thickness of a folded dollar bill:

(Blickensderfer) “This $20 is exactly the amount we were over post race, if it’s folded in half like that.”

Elliott Sadler’s crew chief was also fined $10,000 for a lug nut violation at Talladega.

NASCAR kicked off Mother’s Day weekend by preparing Women’s Hope kits for World Vision. Toyota racing drivers, including Kyle Busch and his wife, Samantha, were on hand to help fill them with essentials.

Also a special Mother’s Day weekend for Ty Dillon and his wife, Haley, announcing they are expecting their first child.
