KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kyle Busch heads to Kansas Speedway this weekend, his personal house of horrors, sitting pretty in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

He's in third place and within striking distance of leader Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson, two drivers who have had plenty of success at Kansas.

Busch knows he'll have to turn around his fortunes at the vexing 1 1/2-mile tri-oval to stay in title contention. Kansas is one of six tracks where he doesn't have a Sprint Cup win, and it is the only track where he's never finished in the top 5.

Kenseth has won the last two races at Kansas, and Johnson has a string of nine straight top-10 runs at the track.
