Roush Cashes in with Early JACKpot

Roush Fenway hit the Vegas jackpot right off the bat, winning the inaugural NSCS event at Las Vegas in 1998. Mark Martin led 82 laps in the victory in a one-two finish for Roush Fenway that afternoon.

Inaugural Sweep

Roush Fenway placed all five of its NSCS entries inside the top 10 of that inaugural Las Vegas race in 1998, including three inside the top five, four inside the top six, one in victory lane and one as the runner-up with drivers Mark Martin, Jeff Burton, Johnny Benson, Ted Musgrave and Chad Little (6 – 1st, 99 – 2nd, 26 – 4th, 16 – 6th and 97 – 10th).

The Cat in the Hat-Trick

Roush Fenway went to victory lane in each of the first three NSCS races at Las Vegas, with race win­ners Martin (1998) and Burton (1999, 2000) leading a combined 249 laps out of 801 (31.1 percent).

Victory Lane at Vegas

In addition to the first three NSCS races at Las Vegas, Roush Fenway again found the winners’ circle in 2003 and 2004 at the 1.5-mile track with Matt Kenseth. Carl Edwards took the checkered flag in the 2008 and 2011 events to give Roush Fenway seven NSCS wins at Las Vegas with four different drivers.

Deuces Wild

Roush Fenway has won two consecutive NSCS races at Las Vegas on two separate occasions in ’99- ’00 and ’03-04’ and once in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in ‘99 and ‘00.

Tale of the Tape

In 77 career NSCS starts at Las Vegas, Roush Fenway has recorded seven victories, 21 top-five fin­ishes, 38 top-10 finishes and has led 1,257 laps.



Roush Fenway has won six times in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Las Vegas, most recently with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. In a total of 49 starts at the 1.5-mile oval, Roush Fenway has earned 19 top-fives (38.8 percent) and 35 top-10s (71.4 percent) in addition to the six victories.
