Cup-Rennen 33: 20th Annual Hollywood Casino 400

The 33rd race of the 2020 season is the first of three playoff races of the ‘Round of 8’. Eight drivers have qualified for the next three playoff races after the road course race in Charlotte.

Site of the seventh. The playoff race of the 2020 season is the Kansas Speedway, which has only been on the cup calendar since 2001. Since the 2011 season, there have been two events a year on the Tri-Oval near Kansas City. For the 30th time, the pilots are driving the 1.5 mile long tri-oval with a curve superelevation of 15 degrees. The start-finish straight is 10.4 degrees, while the back straight has a banking of just five degrees. The race distance is divided into three stages over 80, 80 and 107 laps.

There are three record winners on the oval near Kansas City. Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin, who won the last two events, have won three wins so far. Of the eight remaining playoff participants, Martin Truex Junior and the two Penske teammates Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski each won two races. Chase Elliott also took a win. Only Kurt Busch and Alex Bowman are still unsuccessful in Kansas.
