A look at this week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series race, the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Also, Who’s Hot/Who’s Not features Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Roush Fenway Racing and the NASCAR inspection process.
Jimmie Johnson held off a stout challenge from Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. on a restart with 14 of 325 laps remaining and cruised to victory in Sunday’s rain-delayed Folds of Honor 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Joey Logano knows a thing or two about the importance of second chances. Which is why as much as he would like to win Sunday’s NASCAR Folds of Honor 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, he will also have a rooting interest in David Ragan’s performance.
Joey Logano picked up Friday right where he left off at Daytona. Logano, who won last Sunday’s season-opening Daytona 500, saved his fastest average lap speed for the final round of Friday’s qualifying session and won the pole for Sunday’s Folds of Honor 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Matt Wallace’s last minute decision to compete in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing paid dividends for the teenager who recorded a victory, his first pole and a fourth-place finish in the event’s Pro Late Model standings.
Martin Truex Jr. had ‘by far the best Speedweeks of my career,’ which he capped with an eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500. Now it’s on to Atlanta Motor Speedway with momentum and the hope his Speedweeks is a harbinger for a bounce-back season.
Since 2010, Atlanta’s lone NASCAR Sprint Cup Series date has been during Labor Day weekend. Its move to the second week of the season will be a big test of its viability going forward. Kasey Kahne, who finished ninth in the Daytona 500, won last year’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
