KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Considering where Jeff Gordon was after Richmond, left out of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship in part due to some late-race shenanigans, he couldn't have been happier on Sunday.
Not only is Gordon in the Chase, he's making a charge.
Gordon finished third at Kansas Speedway behind winner Kevin Harvick and runner-up Kurt Busch, his third top-10 finish in four races in NASCAR's playoffs. That's allowed him to climb to fourth in points, 32 behind leader Matt Kenseth with six races left in the season.
Harvick is also making a charge. He won Sunday's wreck-filled race at Kansas to move into third in points. He trails Kenseth by 25 points, and is 22 points back of second-place Jimmie Johnson.
