Unpredictable Talladega gives way to predictable Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The controversy that surrounded the crash-filled race at Talladega last weekend made its way to Kansas Speedway, where what exactly should be done about restrictor-plate racing remained the topic du jour.

Perhaps that's because Kansas tends to be a bit more predictable.

Sure, the mile-and-a-half oval has been repaved in recent years. The newer low-downforce package will be making its debut there this weekend. Tire construction and compound always plays a role on Saturday night.
