Kevin Harvick

0 1 1/13
Truthfully, Harvick’s 11th-place run at Las Vegas was somewhat disappointing, but he’s still second in points.

Jimmie Johnson

0 2 1/20
Forget Johnson’s 23rd-place ranking in the Sprint Cup standings. He was second at Vegas after finishing fourth the previous week at Phoenix.

4

Tony Stewart

2 11 1/15
Stewart’s victory was the earliest he’s ever won a Cup race in the season. That could be bad news for the competition.

Denny Hamlin

Carl Edwards

0 4 4/19
Yes, Edwards finished fifth at Las Vegas, his season’s best result. But he won this race in 2011 and was never a threat this time around.

A fourth-place finish by Newman made it two SHR cars in the top five.

Meh. Truex finished 17th at Vegas but he’s eighth in points.

Paul Menard

0 7 7/20
An excellent seventh-place in Las Vegas means Menardigras is back, at least for this week.

The ageless one drew the ire of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who put him into the wall.

A 16th-place run by Logano was the best of the three JGR Toyotas, not a happy situation.

Just an OK day for Burton, who finished 14th in Las Vegas.
