TV schedule, qualifying drivers for Pennzoil 400 as NASCAR returns to feisty Las Vegas
After two races to begin the season, NASCAR heads west for the start of a three-race weekend swing but could Joey Logano and Kyle Busch be the ones taking swings again?
Last year at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, site of Sunday's Pennzoil 400, Logano got loose and into the rear of Kyle Busch's car, causing Busch to spin onto pit road at the end of the race. Busch was not happy with the wreck and confronted the Ford driver after they both climbed from their cars.
Busch, born in Las Vegas, threw punches at Logano, but he got the worst of it as Logano's team mauled Busch, cutting his forehead before the fight was broken up.
Martin Truex Jr. won that race last season, starting his run of dominance at 1.5-mile tracks. In 2016, it was Brad Keselowski taking the checkered flag.
Las Vegas begins a three-race western swing for the NASCAR Cup Series. After Las Vegas the series heads to Phoenix and then to Fontana, Calif. Here are the key dates, times and a look at the complete tripleheader schedule for NASCAR at Las Vegas.
