The Latest: Kyle Busch going for weekend sweep in Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on the NASCAR race in Las Vegas (all times local):
Joey Logano surged into the lead during the second stage of the NASCAR Cup Series race in Las Vegas.
Logano moved barely in front of pole-sitter and Stage One leader Kevin Harvick heading into the finish after an entertaining second stage. The exciting racing up front was exactly what NASCAR hoped would happen in the first race under its complete new rules package, which is intended to keep cars closer together.
Martin Truex Jr., who won at Vegas in September, was third with Brad Keselowski in fourth.
Kyle Busch’s quest for a three-race weekend sweep in his hometown took a blow when he was penalized for speeding on pit road in the middle of the second stage. Busch knew he had made a mistake, knocking him back to 17th.
Busch got back on the lead lap near the end of the second stage.
