    *qualifying was rained out; field was set by owner points Kasey's thoughts on Las Vegas Motor Speedway:
    "I think Las Vegas is a great track, and I enjoy racing there. You can move around a lot during the race, and you're not just stuck on the bottom of the track. We had a really good Cup test at Vegas, so I'm sure our notes will help our Busch program. We tested at Las Vegas in the Busch car as well, but we weren't as happy with the results. The car that I'll be racing this weekend is the same car that we took to the Busch test (in Las Vegas) along with the Kentucky test last week, so we're just changing a few things and getting it ready to race. This is also the car that we had a ton of success with last season, so hopefully that success will continue in Las Vegas."
