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.

Ross Chastain is in the No. 6 Starting at Las Vegas

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.

“First and foremost, our focus remains with Ryan and his family as he continues to recover. We also want to express our sincere gratitude to all of those who have offered support and taken the time to send their thoughts and prayers to Ryan, his family and everyone at Roush Fenway Racing”.

“The NASCAR community has long prided itself on being a close-knit family. That is never more evident than during these types of moments, and we want to express our appreciation to everyone at Chip Ganassi Racing as well as Kaulig Racing for allowing Ross to fill in for Ryan in the No. 6 on such short notice.”

Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark.

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.
