Kevin Harvick Goes Back-to-Back in 2018 with Las Vegas Win

Kevin Harvick Goes Back-to-Back in 2018 with Las Vegas Win

He struggled in his first race at Daytona, placing 39.

Ryan Blaney, the pole-sitter for Sunday's Monster Energy Cup series race, came in fourth ahead of Elliott Sadler in fifth. Las Vegas native Kurt Busch qualified right behind Harvick at 190.067 miles per hour, while Martin Truex Jr. drove his Toyota into fourth.

The "Freaky Fast" slogan on the side of Kevin Harvick's auto couldn't have been more accurate Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The manufacturer is coming off a resounding performance last weekend on the 1.5-mile track at Atlanta Motor Speedway where its drivers combined to lead 272 of a possible 325 laps.

Kyle Busch won his hometown NASCAR Truck race Friday night for his 50th victory in the series.

Majority of N Koreans against nuclear programme: USA survey
North Korea has reiterated that it is willing to talk to the USA , but one official has warned: "We will not beg for dialogue". North Korea has dismissed reports claiming it had shipped Syria materials used in the manufacturing of chemical weapons.

The track finally got a second date a year ago when New Hampshire's second race was given to Vegas, which was backed by sponsorship deals with the local Convention and Visitors Authority and with the South Point hotel-casino, owned by former race team owner Michael Gaughan.

"This race has more importance around it than it ever has before, just because of the playoff atmosphere that will be around it in September", said Kurt Busch, who was born in this city. While those objectives have been achieved, a byproduct is the consecutive visits to Auto Club Speedway, ISM Raceway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway offer a good snapshot of who will likely emerge as championship contenders. The speedway has been chilly this week, with occasional 40 miles per hour winds buffeting cars and possibly changing drivers' tactics. "It all happened so fast over the last couple of weeks it really lets you reminisce about a lot of things you've done in the sport".

Last weekend in Atlanta, Stewart-Haas Racing had a statement win from Kevin Harvick. Penske's rising star gets another chance to earn his second career Cup victory in Vegas.

Aric Almirola rounded out the top 10 as the first driver off the lead lap. Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is the all-time wins leader at this venue. Johnson intends to get his season back on track on his native West Coast.

It remains to be seen whether Ford's superiority at Atlanta, a track featuring an abrasive surface that rapidly chews up tires and has few comparisons, will carry over to Las Vegas, IMS (March 11), ACS (March 18) and elsewhere. He has started on the pole twice, but has only one top-five finish here despite calling it a top priority in his career. When he gets in the driver's seat for this series, he finds his way to the front. "It's just like anything else, just the same for everybody", Clint Bowyer said. "It's uncalled for, and someone's going to get hurt". "You feel it as you change direction".
