Kyle Larson Dominates NASCAR Race in Las Vegas, Again [VIDEO]

Kyle Larson dominated the NASCAR Race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a second straight time in the Cup Series.

Last fall (10/15/23), Kyle won the first two stages of the race in the South Point 400 in Las Vegas. He also led a race-high 133 of the 267 laps in the race. The next closest was 61 laps as the leader.

Yesterday (3/3/24), Kyle picked up where he left off in Las Vegas. He took the lead of the Pennzoil 400 for the first time on lap three. Kyle was one of 15 drivers that would exchange the lead 24 times during the race. However, he was the one driver at the lead the most with 181 laps as the leader in the 267-lap race. This time the next closest was only out front for 18 laps. Kyle was again the winner of the first two stages in the race.

There were only four caution periods during the race other than the two for the end of the first two stages. One of the caution periods included a 10 minute and 39 second red-flag period while the safety wall was repaired.

Tyler Reddick finished in second place in the first two stages of the race. He made a charge to challenge Kyle for the win at the end. However, there was no denying Kyle Larson the victory as he drove his #5 Chevrolet across the finish line first.

The win is Kyle’s third at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Cup series. It is his first of the 2024 season and this 24th career victory in NASCAR’s top division. The win also gives Chevrolet three out of three wins to start the 2024 Cup Series season.

Just like in the first two stages of the race, Tyler Reddick claimed second place in the final stage. Ryan Blaney took home the third-place finish. See the complete race results for the Pennzoil 400 here.

After his domination in Las Vegas, Kyle Larson moves up 10 spots to take the lead in the point standings. Ryan Blaney improves three spots moving up to second place. Martin Truex Jr. has a seven-spot improvement to third place. See the complete NASCAR Cup Series point standings here.
