Busch still pulled off yet another victory in the second-tier series, and he'll have the chance for a third straight win Sunday. "What a great day for Team Penske and Ford".

Texas Terry man!" said an excited Logano of tying Labonte, "I remember growing up and I had a Terry Labonte die cast.

Busch led the field to green on Lap 168 and held the top spot on older tires despite huge pressure from Kevin Harvick. "Brad and I were so evenly matched and the way the draft works (in this year's cars), you just can't drive away".

Joey Logano won the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube on Sunday.

"I'd like to have one more lap", Keselowski said. During one pit stop, the team made one adjustment that made the vehicle really tight in practice. Brad was catching me so quick and I got stuck behind a lapped vehicle and I was like, oh no. "To be so close and get it at the end there, it was fun".

"I think we passed the most cars today, so I think we were the most impressive today, but it doesn't matter because we don't have a trophy".

Kyle Busch won Saturday's Xfinity Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in overtime, keeping his attempt at a weekend sweep alive.

Busch got back on the lead lap near the end of the second stage. With the lengthy green-flag runs, each stage included a cycle of green-flag pit stops.

Busch, the '09 Cup victor at Las Vegas, ran well inside the top 10 early and was leading under green flag conditions when he incurred a speeding penalty entering pit road on Lap 129. We tried a different brake package this weekend and I was trying to make up time in order to get a bigger jump on the guys behind me coming to pit road there; I just ruined it for us.

Having dominated stage one, leading by as much 4.5s at times, Harvick struggled to replicate the pace he had in the opening 80 laps throughout the remainder of the race. That enable Busch to keep his No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet on the track while others came to pit road for the stage break.

Kevin Harvick stayed in the lead off the pole, and hometown driver Kyle Busch moved up to second before falling back to fifth in the early going.

However, Logano was the victor of the 2nd stage and took over the lead 7 different times in the race. Writer Jeff Gluck described the product as "not a very good first impression", while Xfinity Series driver Christopher Bell quipped, "This is not how I expected this package to race".
