Las Vegas close to getting second NASCAR Cup race

  • Kevin Harvick Seeking a Second Cup Series Win at the Site of His First

Busch's win marked the fifth time in the past nine years that a Ford vehicle took the checkered flag in "The Great American Race". And we can safely guess that Texas and Bristol aren't going to swap dates with Las Vegas if the track is to get a second Cup date. The season finale is now held at Homestead-Miami Speedway, an International Speedway Corp. track.

With the Nascar season underway after last weekend's Daytona 500, a number of deals have been signed across the various tiers of the stock auto series. New Hampshire hosts two points races, one in July and the other in September. The reigning series champion owns five wins, 14 top fives along with the top average running position (8.7) and driver rating (107.1) at Atlanta and is deserving one of the favorites to win Sunday's Fold of Honor QuikTrip 500.

The pole victor at Atlanta for the sixth time, Busch pulled away after a restart on lap 148 of 163 and beat Brad Keselowski to the finish line by.605 seconds to score his second straight victory at the 1.54-mile track in Saturday's Rinnai 250. Drawing a penalty for too many men over the wall on pit road, Custer restarted from the rear after a lap 118 caution for Denny Hamlin's spin in Turn 1 but recovered to earn his top-10 finish in the No. 00 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford.

The Legend of Zelda
Players can bake fruit with torches, roll boulders downhill to crush enemies, or toss foes' projectiles right back at them. But if you already have a Wii U and only want to play Breath of the Wild then go for the Wii U version.

Facebook Launches Ad-Free Video App for Apple TV
Facebook is trying to change that however with the Facebook Video app since Facebook wants to become the leader in online videos. Each row displays tiles that represent separate videos, and when you stop on a particular tile it will auto-play with sound.

NOTE: Kurt Busch was a 20:1 favorite last week before winning the Daytona 500. Atlanta, Kentucky and Sonoma have one Cup Series race a year. With a helping hand from lapped cars, the pole-winner was able to hold off fellow Cup driver Brad Keselowski by 0.606 seconds.

The speedway would not comment, but sponsorship of a second race appears on an agenda for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Last week in Daytona was one heck of a way to kickoff the start of the 2017 Monster Energy Cup season.
