NASCAR at Kansas playoff race 2022: Start time, TV, streaming … – USA TODAY

The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs remain wide open after the opening race of the 10-race postseason produced a number of surprises. The biggest was that a non-playoff driver, Erik Jones, won at Darlington to prevent any of the 16 championship contenders from clinching a berth in the second round.
Meanwhile, Darlington proved a disaster for top seed Chase Elliott who couldn’t even make it to the halfway point before a spin resulted in a broken suspension. Kevin Harvick, who entered the playoffs on a roll after two wins in August, had his race end early when his car caught fire, and Kyle Busch saw what seemed like a sure win slip away when his engine blew up late in the race.
Those drivers will try to put last weekend in the rear-view mirror as they turn their attention to playoff race No. 2, while others, like Denny Hamlin, Tyler Reddick and Joey Logano — who finished second through fourth, respectively, last weekend — will try to capitalize on their momentum.

Kurt Busch led 116 laps, including the final nine, before pulling away from Kyle Larson by 1.413 seconds on May 15. The win clinched a playoff berth for Busch, but the 2004 NASCAR Cup champion withdrew before the playoffs began because of a lingering head injury.
