We had another solid week last week with the Quiktrip 500 race but didn’t quite come away with a winner. Our guy was leading nearly the entire race but couldn’t quite finish it up.

This weekends NASCAR race take place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by FOX. It’s the Kobalt 400 race and the third race of the season and it is a 400-mile, 267-lap race that is just a few miles from the Vegas Strip. The track is a dirt track and a 3/8th mile oval.

History of NASCAR in Las Vegas

The most races won at this track is four by Jimmie Johnson but he has not done that since 2010. Matt Kenseth has won three times, Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Jeff Burton have each won twice. Roush Fenway Racing has the most team wins with seven and Hendrick Motorsports has five wins. Joe Gibbs Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing and Team Penske have two wins each.

Last week only five drivers lead a lap in Atlanta and in the entire race the lead only changed nine times. There were six cautions in the race.

It would be a nice story for Kevin Harvick to win this race as it is his 16th wedding anniversary to his wife Delana. They got married prior to the Vegas NASCAR week in 2001. But there are several others competing for the win.
