“NASCAR Goes West” began with a bang at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this past weekend.
Martin Truex Jr. passed Brad Keselowski for the win with two laps to go in the Kobalt 400. Moments later, chaos ensued on pit road as Kyle Busch threw a right hook to the face of Joey Logano.
But this upcoming weekend, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Phoenix International Raceway for the fourth race of the season.
For the third week in a row, the 40-car field will not be filled, barring any changes. 39 cars are on the entry list.
Clint Bowyer is still without full sponsorship for the 2017 season, so Haas Automation will remain on the hood of the No. 14 car for this weekend. Other notable changes include Skittles hopping aboard the No. 18 of Busch and Axalta on the hood of the No. 88 of Dale Earnhardt Jr.
PIR master Kevin Harvick is the defending winner of this race, beating Carl Edwards to the line in a photo finish.
The Camping World 500 will go green just past 3:45 p.m. ET from the 1-mile oval in the desert. TV coverage can be found on FOX with radio on MRN and SiriusXM.
