The NASCAR Cup Series continues to swing the West Coast with the first two races at Sin City this year after returning last weekend to Fontana, California.
Sunday’s race will be the first on the 1.5-mile track for the new Next-Gen Car series and a good test of how the teams perform on the intermediate tracks with the new package.
Christopher Bell will start pole position for the first time in his Cup career after setting the fastest time in Saturday’s final qualifying session. Kyle Larson, who won last Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway, will start alongside in the front row.
