Speeds are up at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend. Way up. Entire miles per hour up. Speeds in qualifying and speeds in practice.
Those searching for an answer as to why, are generally hearing a five-letter word – tires.
Kurt Busch won the pole for Sunday’s Shelby American on Friday with […]
Las Vegas, Nev. – Sprint Cup driver Greg Biffle is doing his part to breathe life back into racing at the grass roots level.
The driver of Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 16 Ford announced Friday morning that he has acquired partial ownership of Sunset Speedway, a 1/3-mile clay oval just outside of Portland.
He’ll also play a […]
Hometown boy Kurt Busch won the pole for Sunday’s Shelby American Sprint Cup race Friday afternoon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
It was the first Vegas pole for Busch, who drives the No. 2 Dodge for Penske Racing.
