Truex Jr. also has a Las Vegas win to his name. Dixon held a 29-point lead over Rossi at the start of the day, and even though the race was worth double points, Rossi needed to be flawless to catch "The Iceman". Harvick won't finish in Vegas after blowing a tire. 2017) have come from the front row. Almirola earned a playoff point win a stage win at Chicagoland.
Brad Keselowski has won the second stage of the first NASCAR playoff race, setting the stage for a big finish in Las Vegas.
There is no reason not to think that Harvick will do that again this Sunday and guarantee himself a spot in the next round of the playoffs. First girl to qualify on pole, but I don't want to be the best girl, I want to be the best driver. It should be business as usual as you start this weekend, and the goal is to win.

He ran fifth there in the spring after earning the pole and never fell far from the front.
