What’s Happening?

All three NASCAR National Touring Series descend on Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend to begin a two-week West Coast Swing. Three series on track means a busy weekend with a lot of on-track activity. Here is how fans can follow along throughout the weekend.

  • Las Vegas Motor Speedway was built in 1998, and it has hosted a spring race weekend very early in the season since its inception. The track began hosting a fall weekend as well in 2018, and that will continue in 2024.
  • The track is a 1.5-mile tri-oval with 20 degrees of banking in the turns. The track was originally relatively flat with only 12 degrees of banking before it was reconfigured in 2007. That was the last repave the track had.
  • Fans are excited for this weekend’s races at Las Vegas. Tripleheader weekends are always a great time for fans.

What to Watch For This Weekend

Craftsman Truck Series

The Truck Series regulars will face a stiff test from Cup Series regulars this weekend. Kyle Busch, the defending winner both at this track and in the series in general, is in the field for Spire Motorsports alongside Christopher Bell, who will race for TRICON Garage, and Zane Smith for McAnally-Hilgemann Racing.

Xfinity Series

Austin Hill is searching for his third consecutive win to start the season, and he happened to win this race one year ago. He faces a stiff test, however, as Chandler Smith led 118 laps in this race last season as well. Don’t count out Riley Herbst either as he won at Las Vegas last fall.

Cup Series

Last year’s Cup Series race proved to foreshadow the rest of the season somewhat. William Byron and Kyle Larson dominated to lead a combined 239 of 267 laps, and both drivers made the Championship 4 at season’s end. Chevy has dominated the early part of the season, winning both races, so, can they continue that dominance this weekend?
