(AP) Matt Kenseth captured his second straight race at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, holding off Kasey Kahne to become the third straight 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 Kahne tried to make.


Kahne pulled alongside him entering Turn 4 with the white flag flying, but Kenseth pulled back ahead along the front stretch and then cruised across the finish line for the win.


Points leader Jimmie Johnson took third, followed by Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer.


Brad Keselowski, whose Penske Racing team is racing under looming sanction from NASCAR, showed plenty of resilience in finishing sixth with the rear of his car torn away.
