The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Comes Home. 1st Race of Round 2 Comes Saturday Night. The Only Saturday Night Race in the Chase! Kevin Harvick is the defending race winner and tempers flared here last year. The only issue is that was the 2nd race of the Contender Round last year this year its the opener of the Round.

John Wes Townley Gambles Big To Win Las Vegas!

YES you are reading that correct. John Wes Townley wins the Rhino Linings 350. By Coasting across the start finish line he won Saturday Nights Rhino Linings 350. He beat drivers like Matt Crafton and other big teams. Athenian Motorsports and John Wes Townley's first trip to victory lane! Timothy Peters, Ben Kennedy, John Hunter Nemachek, and Brandon Jones rounded out the Top 5. Matt Crafton and his Crew Cheif were called to the NASCAR Hauler because of a  incident before Matt came to pit road where he threw a piece of padding out of his car attempting to get a caution. Also Austin Theriault was in the news for the wrong reason. On lap 15  He and his teammate Tyler Reddick made contact sending Austin right into the outside unprotected wall. Austin Would be sent to the Hospital for further evaluation. We still have no word other than the fact that He was talking and awake. We here at NASCAR Source sends out prayers for the Health of Austin Theriault.
