The Go Bowling400 (previously called SpongeBob SquarePants400), has a new sponsor; it's held in May 7th, 2016.“We’re excited to announce our partnership with for our May Sprint Cup Series night race,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “I’m thrilled to be able to work with such a family-friendly brand at Kansas Speedway because NASCAR racing appeals to fans of all ages. I know this will be a great partnership with Go and I can’t wait to see their activation not only at Kansas Speedway but at bowling centers around the country.”

Kansas is one of the fastest of the 1.5-mile race tracks. The track was repaved and progressive banking was added in 2012. Kansas is starting to get worn in, but it still lacks multiple groves for drivers to race. This is an aero-dependent track and the cream usually rises to the top. The drivers at the top of the NASCAR point standings should run well this week.There are seven drivers who have an average finishing position in the top 10 on the intermediate tracks this season. These drivers will be the best choices for fantasy teams Saturday night.

SAFER Barrier

The Steel and Foam Energy Reduction System (SAFER barrier) at Kansas Speedway is made of steel tubes and pads of energy-absorbing foam attached to the track's existing concrete retainer walls between Turns 1 and 2, between Turns 3 and 4 and along most of the frontstretch. The total 1.28 miles of SAFER walls around Kansas Speedway is the longest length at any of the tracks with SAFER walls on the NASCAR circuit.
