Seg 1: It's Race Week In Kansas City. Seg. 2: In A Tough Campaign, McCaskill Promotes Compromise.
Segment 1: Chiefs talk, the Kansas City Marathon, UMKC women's soccer and more.
On Saturday, more than 10,000 runners will take to the streets in the annual Kansas City Marathon. It's not the only race happening this weekend, as Kansas Speedway hosts the Hollywood Casino 400. We discussed both races, the state of women's soccer, the Chiefs close loss on Sunday, and we heard breaking news about the Sprint Center as the site for the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championship.
