Race 3 – Las Vegas Preview

Posted by chadmusselman on March 1, 2008

The series moves to Las Vegas this week, the home of Kurt and Kyle Busch. Both have done well here in the past, and look to have solid runs again today as Kyle Busch qualified in the pole position, and Kurt in 9th.

Last week’s winner, Carl Edwards, is trying to build on his success by qualifying second.

Jimmy Johnson who has dominated Las Vegas, winning the last three races qualified all the way down in 33rd spot. Will he be able to get more speed out of his car during the race? He had some quick times in practice, but nothing like the qualifying times of the top 20.

4 Drivers with a real shot to win:

  • Jimmy Johnson – Must overcome a bad qualifying run, but if anyone can do it, he can.
  • Matt Kenseth – He’s the last driver to win here not named Jimmy Johnson. He has also finished 8th, 2nd, & 4th in the last 3 races at Las Vegas.
  • Kyle Busch – He loves his home track. He’s on the pole, and the last 3 years he’s finished 2nd, 3rd, & 9th
  • Jeff Gordon – He’s always solid here. Finishing in the top 5 the last 3 races here.

2 others that should contend for the top 10

  • Greg Biffle – He qualified 6th, and has a 6th and 8th place finish in 2 of the last 3 here
  • Denny Hamlin – He’s been in the top 10 in both of his Vegas races.
