It was a dominating day for Martin Truex, Jr. at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday.  Truex led 150 of the race’s 267 laps and claimed all three stages, but needed a next-to-last lap pass of Brad Keselowski to win his first race at Vegas.

Keselowski looked to be on his way to a second straight win when he radioed that something had broken in his car.  He said he couldn’t turn and had no brakes.  Truex called it a gift and easily took the lead while Keselowski faded to finished fifth.

Kyle Larson finished second, Chase Elliott came in third and Joey Logano finished fourth.  But Logano came face to face with an angry Kyle Busch in the garage area.  Busch accused Logano of intentionally trying to wreck him while sending Busch’s car spinning down pit road.

Logano said there weren’t too many words between the two, just a lot of punches thrown, but Busch came out the worst of it after one of Logano’s crew members stepped in and Busch ended up with a bloody face.  In reference to Logano, Busch said afterward “he’s gonna get it.”

After three races Keselowski leads in stage points.  Kevin Harvick is second while Truex stands third.

The series remains out west next week for a visit to Phoenix International Raceway.
