Kyle Larson Dominates XFINITY Series Race In Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV – It was nearly a perfect race weekend on the NASCAR XFINITY Series side of things for Kyle Larson. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver was fastest in both practice sessions on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway oval on Friday, then backed that up with seeing his No. 42 Chevrolet sit on top of the leaderboard in both the first and second rounds of qualifying on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately for him, rookie Christopher Bell would narrowly top him in the third and final round of qualifying to earn his…

Joe Gibbs Racing Seems Off In Vegas, Hendrick Improving

LAS VEGAS, NV – It’s no secret, the start of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season hasn’t been the greatest for arguably two of the top teams in the sport. Both Joe Gibbs Racing and Hendrick Motorsports haven’t been a contender at either of the first two races of the year in Daytona and Atlanta and so far it doesn’t look like they will be in Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) either. While Denny Hamlin has completed 100-percent of the laps this year, one of only…

Kevin Harvick Strong In Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV – After his dominating victory last weekend in Atlanta, some wondered if Kevin Harvick and his Stewart-Haas Racing team would maybe give up a possible win this weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and use Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) as a throwaway race to prepare for the return trip in the playoffs in September. With cooler conditions, more similar than what it will be like in the Fall, plus with a guaranteed spot in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs now, why…

Clint Bowyer Sleeper To Watch Sunday in Vegas

The 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has shown promise out of Clint Bowyer and his No. 14 Ford with Stewart-Haas Racing. In the season opening race at the Daytona International Speedway, he was in the hunt for a good finish until he dropped a cylinder. Still, he brought home his car in 15th place. Not too shabby under the circumstances. Last weekend in Atlanta, Bowyer earned stage points in both stages and came away with a top five finish, third to be exact. Now, he’s hoping to end…

Kyle Larson Aiming To Get Chevrolet A Win Sunday In Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV – It’s no secret, the last two years, Chevrolet has been down in comparison to the other two manufacturers in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. In 2017, Chevy drivers were locked out of the Championship 4 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. They never could contend enough to earn one of the four coveted spots in the final round. Through two races this season, Chevy is down again. Most would think that they may have another long season ahead. But, 2018 is a different than 2017 for the bowties…

LAS VEGAS, NV – With an assist from lapped traffic, Kyle Busch took the lead late in Friday night’s Stratosphere 200 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and cruised to his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win on his hometrack. While it was far from his first Truck Series victory in general, Friday night’s trip to victory lane was the 50th of Busch’s Truck career, one shy of tying Ron Hornaday Jr. for most all-time.
