Las Vegas close to getting second NASCAR Cup race

Danica Patrick Ready for Atlanta

The proposed sponsorship, which would start January 1 and run through December 31, 2024, would require the speedway to "promote, manage, organize and conduct two NASCAR first tier (currently Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series) sanctioned races at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway every year during the term of this agreement".

"It took so long to get here to begin with", Busch said in Victory Lane.

"We won the Daytona 500". The one-off deal will bring in up to US$800,000 for Roush Fenway.

Busch was first off pit road under the fifth caution of the afternoon after Kyle Larson, the leader entering pit road, almost collided with Kevin Harvick, the dominant driver for most of the race with 64 laps led.

Kurt Busch leads all active drivers in laps led at Atlanta with 749.


"I can't say enough about my pit crew", Busch said.

Busch cruised to his second straight Atlanta victory in the second-tier series Saturday.

Elliott Sadler was the top-finishing Xfinity Series regular in fifth place, followed by fellow series drivers Darrell Wallace Jr. and William Byron. The surface has been in place for almost 20 years, making fresh tires extremely advantageous for turning fast laps on the abrasive track.

Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson have been dominant on the intermediate tracks but Harvick's first and only win at Atlanta came all the way back in 2001.

Harvick took the pole for the second race of the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup season on Friday, turning a lap of 190.398 miles per hour in the third round of qualifying. In addition to two great races in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), "The Great American Race" in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) proved once again to be one of NASCAR's biggest spectacles on and off the track. His 42 point total was largely due to him winning Stages 1 and 2 of the race.
