Stp 400

The STP 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race held at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas. Kansas received a second date beginning in 2011 as part of NASCAR's latest round of schedule realignment; since 2001 the track had always held a race in late September/early October that became part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup starting in 2004. For that race, see Hollywood Casino 400.

History

The inaugural STP 400 was held on June 5, 2011. Like the fall race at Kansas, the distance of the race was 400.5 miles (644.542 km).[1] Brad Keselowski won the inaugural running of the race ahead of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. after saving fuel.[2] Unlike 2011, the 2012 race was moved to April 22, 2012 to allow more time for the Kansas Speedway to complete the track's reconfiguration.[3] During the 2012 STP 400, A. J. Allmendinger won the pole position with a time of 30.683 seconds,[4] but Denny Hamlin won the race after passing Martin Truex, Jr..[5] For 2013, the race remained as the eighth race of the season in April, and was held on April 21, 2013.

In 2014, the race will swap dates with the Bojangles' Southern 500, and will be held in May under the lights for the first time.[6]
