After a couple of weeks of scuffling to start the 2016 season, Brad Keselowski finally got it going at the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Keselowski made his move to get to the front at the right time near the end of the race and there was just no stopping Keselowski on the day. He now has secured a spot in the Chase.
While Logano doesn’t have a win on the season just yet, Logano had battled through adversity through the first few weeks of the season. His car has been fighting him on the track a little bit, but at Las Vegas, Logano had his best race yet and finished second behind his teammate.
Jimmie Johnson won a couple of weeks ago at Atlanta, which means now that he has his spot locked up in the Chase, he can now focus on getting ready for it by trying different things at tracks and taking more chances he might not normally have the opportunity to. At Las Vegas, Johnson finished third and followed up his win at Atlanta strong.
Kyle Busch made a brilliant pass late to take the lead at Las Vegas. However, his car began vibrating on the right side from a tire change and Busch just didn’t have the speed necessary to hold onto his lead. He would fall back fourth, but it was another great day for the defending Sprint Cup Champion.
