LAS VEGAS – It’s easy to spot a trend where Kyle Busch is concerned.
Put Busch in one of his own Kyle Busch Motorsports trucks, and he’s all but certain to win. That’s been the case for seven straight starts in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, counting Friday night’s victory in the Strat 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, his home track.
Busch led seven times for 108 of the 134 laps in the 200-mile race. About the only difficulty he had was clearing Sheldon Creed on consecutive restarts in the final stage of the race. But five laps into a run, Busch was gone.

Speculations over the driver for the RFR No 6 at Las Vegas are now over.
On Wednesday afternoon it was Ross Chastain getting a nod from Roush Fenway Racing to take the wheel of the No. 6 for Ryan Newman starting at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Due to injuries from a last-lap incident – in Monday’s rain-delayed Daytona 500 – Newman was immediately taken to Halifax Medical Center for treatment. The good news is that he was released this afternoon and is now home.
A popular NASCAR veteran, Ross Chastain is taking advantage of his most recent opportunities with stellar results. In the past two years, he has three Truck Series victories and two Xfinity Series wins. In 2018, his dominating win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway put a spotlight on his career. Chastain has also run in 72 Cup Series races, which includes his top-ten finish in last year’s Daytona 500. On Monday, however, his strong 500-run came to an end with a late-race accident.
Currently, there is no timetable for Newman’s return and Roush Fenway Racing is continuing to provide any additional updates.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway was the site for the first race in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. There are ten races in the playoffs, but it is a tough road to make it to Homestead-Miami as a contender for the championship title. Sunday night’s first race was a prime example of how competitive it is throughout the playoffs.
LAS VEGAS — It had been almost three months since Martin Truex Jr. last raised a trophy and while others may have wondered about his No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota team’s Playoff potential, this team never wavered in its confidence or pursuit.
LAS VEGAS – Tyler Reddick and his Richard Childress Racing Team gambled and hit the jackpot at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday evening – taking a chance on fuel mileage; racing just hard enough and simultaneously saving just enough fuel to hold off Christopher Bell by 0.738-seconds in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Rhino Pro Truck Outfitters 300.
LAS VEGAS – Austin Hill earned his third NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series win of the 2019 season Friday night at Las Vegas Motor Speedway – perhaps his most important victory as it advances him to the second round of the Playoffs with big momentum and raised expectations.
LAS VEGAS – Kyle Busch looked simultaneously relaxed in his hometown of Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon and ready to get after it. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs begin with Sunday’s South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) and as the regular-season champion, Busch starts the 10-race championship push as the top-seed among the 16 Playoff drivers. On-track action begins Friday with opening Cup practice.
Defending Las Vegas race winner Brad Keselowski is among those expecting the intensity to increase this weekend with the Playoff opener. A three-time winner at Vegas, Keselowski is a favorite this weekend and conceded that he’s fully prepared to do whatever is necessary to earn one of the coveted winner’s trophies en route to the Homestead-Miami Speedway Championship finale.
