Worth mentioning: Team Penske’s Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano have owned the Sprint Cup Series’ new knock-out qualifying format, with Keselowski winning the pole at Phoenix and Logano at Las Vegas. Can they make it three in a row this weekend?
Who’s Hot/Who’s Not
Brad Keselowski: Only the second driver to sweep the Nationwide and Sprint Cup series races in the same weekend at Las Vegas.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.: He gambled and finished second – that’s not a bad result at all.
Paul Menard: Best Cup finish since fall of 2012 and best of the Richard Childress Racing drivers at Las Vegas.
Joey Logano: He quickly became a valued and talented teammate to Keselowski.
Danica Patrick: She was best among the four-member Stewart-Haas Racing class.
Tony Stewart: A 33rd-place finish with no easily identifiable answer. Not a good sign.
Kevin Harvick: Was in contention for the victory at Las Vegas until a broken wheel hub ended his day.
