Truex Jr. wins at Las Vegas; Busch brawls with Logano

Truex Jr win paid out at 8/1 odds in the sports books.
LAS VEGAS — Sunday’s Kobalt 400 shaped up as a two-man show even before the green flag dropped at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

After a weekend in which Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski pretty much dominated every practice and qualifying, Sunday’s race was no different.

Truex passed Keselowski for the lead with two laps to go and ended up completing a sweep of all three stages with the race win. This came after Keselowski started from the pole, with Truex starting alongside him on the front row after the two were fastest in Friday qualifying.

In Sunday’s showdown, Keselowski’s car appeared to lose some power shortly before Truex made the winning pass and fell to fifth by the finish. Kyle Larson moved up to second, followed by Chase Elliott and Joey Logano as Kyle Busch wrecked behind them all.
