NASCAR schedule for Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Kyle Busch, NASCAR’s latest Cup Series winner, intends to use that momentum in a very busy weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Busch, who won Sunday’s Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway, is entered in all three NASCAR races — Cup, Xfinity and Craftsman Truck — this weekend in Las Vegas. That would be a tough schedule for some drivers, but Busch has proven to be up to the task. He has won all three series races in a single weekend twice — both times (2010 and 2017) at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Busch will be among the favorites in Sunday’s 400-mile Cup race. He won at his home track in 2009 and, along with Martin Truex Jr., has the longest active top-10 streak at the track at five.
