The Jayhawks will compete against Iowa, Minnesota and Oklahoma in the double dual, which begins at 8 a.m. CT and will feature all four schools racing at the same time. KU will compete in all seven of the events scheduled races.

Kansas has raced twice so far this spring, picking up three wins at Central Oklahoma in Oklahoma City on March 18, and a combined three wins during the Sunshine State Invite on March 31-April 1 in Sarasota, Florida.

"Kansas is thrilled to host this competitive field here in Kansas City. We look forward to getting some great racing in front of friends and family that haven't been able to travel to each program race, many of which have been outside the midwest. The Jayhawks have been making some good strides since our last race and it will be great to see what holds at race pace this weekend. "
