Hornaday On Pole In Kansas
By Nick Bromberg | Senior Correspondent
Kansas City, Kan. – Ron Hornaday Jr. captured the pole Saturday for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 250 at Kansas Speedway with a lap of 169.194 mph.
Matt Crafton qualified second for Sunday’s race, but more interestingly, Johnny Sauter qualified third, which mean’s he’ll start right behind Hornaday. Hornaday spun Sauter at Martinsville, and afterwards, Sauter confronted Hornaday on pit road.
“From where I stand, it’s easy, I owe him one. I hope I don’t have to run into him on the start,” Sauter said.
Hornaday dismissed what Sauter said and admitted again that he is expecting Sauter to pay him back sometime, but that Kansas wasn’t the appropriate place for payback.
“He’ll get me back someday, but he forgets how many times he’s wrecked me,” Hornaday said, “Johnny and I have been really good buds and we still are, it’s just one of them things. Martinsville’s Martinsville. We go back there, I’ll be comfortable with that but at a place like this, it’s not right. He can do what he wants to do, that’s part of racing. He’s going to try to get in my head and it’s just, he knows what happened there.”No Comment
