Blood Flies at End of NASCAR Race in Vegas
The only way I can describe the latest racing to you, is it is totally unpredictable. Anything and more can happen in the final lap.
Take Sunday's NASCAR race in Las Vegas for example. Brad Keselowski is comfortably out front in the white #2 Ford with five laps to go. He's led nearly 90 laps of the race, how could you not chalk him up as the winner.
This thing looks to be over, my wife is calling from the dining room that dinner's ready. I have the remote in hand, but I'm not pushing buttons just yet because lately anything can happen.
Now we are down to a little over one lap to go, and all hell breaks loose. The 2 car is having problems, Keselowski is slowing. Martin Truex, Jr. takes over the lead. Meanwhile Joey Logano gets a little loose and into Kyle Busch while they are racing for third.
Busch ends up sliding across the finish line in 22nd place. We are still not done, now a full blown fight breaks out on pit road. Busch walks away with a face full of blood.
Let's not let this drama at the end take away from the real race that took place all afternoon between Truex and Keselowski. These two drivers battled hard with two very dominant cars. Truex led 150 and Keselowski led 89 of the 267 laps.
Keselowski was able to finish fifth with the troubled car at the end. Kyle Larson was second, Chase Elliott third and Logano fourth. See where your driver finished.
