At his home track, Busch made it to victory lane in both the Truck and Xfinity Series, but wound up third in the Pennzoil 400 Cup race, suffering a pit lane speeding penalty that sent him to the back mid race. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver did not pit with the rest of the field at the end of stage two, which had been claimed by Logano, and elected to run a little longer into the final 107-lap stage. However, on lap 129, Busch was penalized for speeding while entering pit road.

Roger Penske's team has won two of the first three races, and the 82-year-old owner is encouraged by the early results from the new package, and not just because Logano won.

"The second half of the race, it's happened to us two weeks in a row", Harvick said. It was Logano's 22nd career victory.

Harvick started on the pole and led the first 43 laps before the first cycle of stops.

Logano moved past Keselowski and into the lead with 23 laps to go.

"I certainly screwed up our day", Busch lamented. We tried a different brake package this weekend and I was trying to make up time in order to get a bigger jump on the guys behind me coming to pit road there; I just ruined it for us.

Besides the stage breaks, the race featured no cautions, the first such incident-related caution-free race since the 2002 EA Sports 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

The 2018 Cup Series champion was dominant throughout the third and final stage of the 267-lap, race the four-turn 1.5-mile (2.414 kilometer) high-banked Las Vegas Motor Speedway oval.

Penske also wasn't anxious when his two drivers were inches apart on that final lap: "We've really told them to take care of each other, and the last 10 laps, the best man wins".

"I'd like to have one more lap, " Keselowski said.

"I've got to get it to where it's balanced evenly". And we've never won it and that's the most important stat to have.

"Yeah, we made one adjustment and I got really tight in traffic".

Kyle Busch came up one race short in his quest to again sweep a NASCAR weekend.

Keselowski had surged from sixth at the start of stage three to lead the race with 27 laps remaining.

"It played out where we got clean air and it completely changed the complexion of the auto".

But even when Busch lost the lead, he was still able to remain inside the top-five, finishing fifth by the end of the race. "But it gave us a lot to learn from today and I'm really proud of everybody to get a top five". "Now we've got two top fives to year, but we know we've got some more work to do".
