Kyle Busch Dominates in First Las Vegas Xfinity Victory!

Atlanta - Check
Las Vegas - Check
What is left for Kyle Busch to win at in the Xfinity Series after the last two weeks? Well that sole track is Watkins Glen International. Kyle Busch dominated Saturday's Boyd Gaming 300 in his Hometown of Las Vegas, NV. Kyle led 199 of the 200 laps in the race en route to his first win at the Xfinity Series level at Las Vegas. Joe Gibbs Racing swept 1-2-3 with Kyle Busch in first, Daniel Suarez in second, and Erik Jones in third. Chase Elliott and Austin Dillon rounded out the Top 5.

NASCAR News Source Xfinity Regular of The Race

Since Cup Regulars have so far dominated in the Xfinity Series we will start having the NASCAR News Source Xfinity Regular of The Race. This will be the highest finishing Xfinity Regular of The Race and during the Week after that driver will become the Driver Spotlight for the Week! We will also add Low Money Team Of The Week Spotlight which will feature Derrike Cope and his #70 Ice-Aid/E-Hydrate Chevrolet Camaro for the Inaugural week. This weekends NASCAR News Source Xfinity Regular of The Race is Daniel Suarez. In the Article we will discuss what happens if a driver duplicates highest finisher.

Hard Crash Leads To Red Flag. 

This wild crash was one of the scariest moments so far in the Xfinity Series. In this crash Cody Ware got lose up in the marbles losing it and sending his car back into traffic. Darrell Wallace Jr. rammed the #25 Rick Ware Racing Chevrolet Camaro sending Darrell Wallace around. Justin Marks went to avoid the #25 and he hit the wall coming back down at Darrell narrowly missing a T-Bone Crash. All 3 drivers walked away while an image circulated of the Frame of the #25 being snapped in two. This certainly goes to show all of the great safety initiatives that have gone in effect keeping everyone safe.

Next Weekend's Race!

 The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Phoenix for the 2nd race of the West Coast Swing and Kyle Busch is expected to be in the next 5 races in the Xfinity Series. I personally predict Kyle to go 7 for 7 in Xfinity Races and win the next 5. Many fans hope I am wrong but Kyle has been very dominant and it's not looking to change anytime soon. Can an Xfinity Regular step up to the cup regular in the final 2 races of the West Coast Swing? Or will Cup Regulars continue Dominating. Remember 4 races in and still not one driver is locked into the chase. Will that change in the Desert?
