Busch wins hometown NASCAR Truck race in Las Vegas

Ryan Blaney claims Vegas pole; Kevin Harvick still fast in second

A relatively issue-free Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway saw its first wreck taking out contending drivers coming off Turn 4 with 85 laps to go.

Across all 3 NASCAR national touring series, Kevin Harvick now has 100 wins. If he can have the same type of performance at Las Vegas, I think he could be a victor this Sunday. The Stewart Haas Racing star led the most laps of any Las Vegas victor ever with 214. I'd expect Truex to come to play and his fourth-place qualifying effort reflects that. "He was on rails, and lights out".

Kyle won the 2009 Cup Series race from the pole, one of two times he has posted the fastest qualifying speed.

"It's definitely an important weekend to make sure you have a firm understanding of this track and what you're going to need when you come back for the playoffs", said Kevin Harvick, who won last week in Atlanta. "My (team has) done their homework on a number of things". "Real proud of Adam [Stevens, crew chief] and the boys". In third is Kyle Larson, who won the Xfinity Series race on Saturday.

Blaney earned his third career pole with a lap at 191.489 miles per hour in his Team Penske Ford. But Vegas took on added importance this year with a second Cup date also serving as the first race of the NASCAR postseason.

The Met Office said: "Further snow showers or perhaps longer spells of snow are likely at times through Friday". The Met Office says the cold weather could last into next week and possibly the following week.

Kyle Busch is the 2016 victor of this race and is already coming off a victory on Friday night in the Truck Series.

"It's been a lot of years accumulated with a lot of great race teams and people and situations", Harvick said.

"There will be a lot of young guys in the mix [at Vegas] with a racetrack that's a little calmer with things that you don't have to have in your memory bank", Harvick said during the week leading up to the race via AutoSport.

But by late in the final stage, Busch began to pick up momentum and moved into second with just over 15 of 267 laps remaining.

NASCAR has had this freaky set of numbers coincidences to start off its 2018 season reminding us of a lost legend.

Turkish air strike kills pro-government gunmen in northern Syria
The Turkish army often uses the word neutralised in its statements to imply the militants were either killed, wounded or captured. According to the report, Turkish army shelled the battle area to allow the evacuation of wounded soldiers.

Busch and Elliott were running side by side in ninth and 10th place, respectively, after a caution flag reset the field. Two wins have come in his last five starts out in Sin City along with four top-five finishes.

Knowing there was no way to naturally track down the Stewart-Haas Racing driver, Busch radioed his team he was going to "try to bring her home" and see what happened as the laps wound down. I hate it for all the Chase Elliott fans and the Kurt Busch fans and my hometown fans. Busch, who had been fighting to overtake Moffitt in the final stage, took control on a restart with 12 laps to go. The crash necessitated a long caution for fluid cleanup.

BUSCH BROTHERS: Kyle and Kurt Busch grew up in Las Vegas, but the Durango High School grads have only one combined Cup victory on the track that was built during their youth. Kurt Busch failed to win the Cup race in Vegas for the 17th time.

Defending race victor Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney completed he top five finishers. With the exception of 2009, seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson won a race during NASCAR's West Coast swing every year for which he won a championship. Johnson had to start at the back after his chief, Jesse Saunders, got the gate.
