Kyle Busch showed yesterday how good he really is. He maybe should have won the championship last year if not for troubles that he had with his car in the chase. He won Las Vegas yesterday with great restart after great restart. He is sixth in points after yesterday, with Jeff Gordon leading after another solid finish after a shaky day. Matt Kenseth had engine trouble right from the start along with many other teams that day. Kenseth finished last. Joey Logano improved after not running well at the start last week and not being able to overcome it. He could win a race later in the year. Watch for it. It is on to Atlanta. A story to watch is the top 35. Regan Smith is in the top 35, but is not running this week. He therefore will not be in the top 35 after Bristol. David Gilliland's team is on the verge of being in the top 35 after missing Daytona. That would be huge for that team. June Bug and Logano look to be safe. Scott Speed and Paul Menard are outside the top 35, along with Travis Kvapil, who failed to qualify at Las Vegas. It could be a revolving door in the top 35 this year because teams could be missing races at different times.
Las Vegas and more
