Today, he had another excellent finish and near miss. 4 Joey Logano On of the pre-race favorites, Logano and his Team Penske Ford were, though pit strategy bit him earlier. 5 Brad Keselowski On Friday, Keselowski won the pole for this race, which he won in 2014 and ’16. On Sunday, he was headed to another victory when his car had an issue with 2 laps to go. 6 Denny Hamlin The Joe Gibbs Toyotas should improved speed at Las Vegas, after a disappointing Atlanta weekend. 7 Ryan Blaney Now in his second year with the Wood Brothers, Blaney had one of the fastest cars in the field, despite some odd vibrations at several points in the race. 8 Jamie McMurray Traditionally, Las Vegas has not been a great track for McMurray, but he had a good finish this time. 9 Matt Kenseth A three-time Las Vegas winner barely cracked the top 10. 10 Clint Bowyer The new kid on the block at Stewart-Haas Racing had the team’s best finish. 11 Jimmie Johnson After a pair of disappointing races to start the season, the seven-time series champion wasn’t great here, either, 12 Kasey Kahne Early on, Kahne has been one of the pleasant surprises of the season. 13 Trevor Bayne The 2011 Daytona 500 winner had a decent outing. 14 Aric Almirola So far, 2017 has been better for Almirola than 2016 was. 15 Erik Jones The rookie won a Truck Series race here before, and in his first Monster Energy start at this track, he did a solid job. 16 Dale Earnhardt Jr. In the previous six Las Vegas races, Earnhardt finished in the top 10 every time. Today, he didn’t. 17 Ryan Newman Newman, who had three top fives in the previous six races here, couldn’t match his best runs. 18 Michael McDowell This track had been a challenge for McDowell, who in seven starts here has never finished better than 29th here.

He didn’t get going early and fell off the lead lap. 22 Kyle Busch Busch was lined up for a top-10 finish until he made contact with Joey Logano and spun off of Turn 4.
