NASCAR travels to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend with a full schedule of competition in all three series.
During the 2022 season, we saw 19 different NASCAR Cup Series drivers in victory lane. Will the trend continue this year?
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won the season-opening Daytona 500 and last week, Kyle Busch won at Auto Club Speedway in only his second start with Richard Childress Racing.
