KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Speedway officials have named Gov. Sam Brownback as the grand marshal for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

The Republican governor will preside over the Hollywood Casino 400, which is the fourth race in NASCAR's top series championship.

Matt Kenseth is leading the championship over five-time series winner Jimmy Johnson and Kyle Busch. Johnson won last weekend's race at Dover, N.H.

Two other races are scheduled for the weekend at the northeast Kansas track, starting with Friday's Kansas Lottery 98.9 ARCA Racing Series. The Kansas Lottery 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race will be run Saturday.
