NASCAR lands in Kansas this weekend (there’s a Wizard of Oz joke in there somewhere), where points leader Greg Biffle looks to continue his early season success in the Sprint Cup Series.

The STP 400 is race #8 (out of 36) on the Sprint Cup circuit. Race coverage on Sunday starts at 12:30 PM EDT on FOX, and the race itself begins at 1:16 PM EDT.
