  • Since its repaving, the Las Vegas track has some bumps in it that have really been giving the Sprint Cup drivers a hard time in their practices and qualifying sessions, and as the NASCAR - 2009 Sam's Town 300 continued, it was amazing to see how it was these 'higher rated' drivers who had the most problems

      The NASCAR - 2009 Sam’s Town 300 Nationwide race was a comedy of errors and bad plays by veteran drivers. The Las Vegas race was full of yellow flags, many of which were spin outs done by Cup drivers participating in the race.

      Since its repaving, the Las Vegas track has some bumps in it that have really been giving the Sprint Cup drivers a hard time in their practices and qualifying sessions, and as the NASCAR - 2009 Sam’s Town 300 continued, it was amazing to see how it was these ‘higher rated’ drivers who had the most problems.

      One of the first problems was caused by Kyle Busch, who actually took


      the blame for driving too hard for the win. It was definitely too early for that kind of move. In another move, Jeff Burton lost control and took out teammate Kevin Harvick, who wasn’t thrilled about that at all.

      Then there were the mental mistakes, highlighted by Denny Hamlin speeding through pit lane on his final pit stop, and then speeding again through his pass through penalty. Even Carl Edwards sped on his final pit regularly scheduled pit stop. He was a lap down already, but he got lucky in that the caution came out right after his penalty was announced.

      Justin Allgaier, one of the Nationwide regulars, had a ...


      • great shot to win the race, but he got a little over anxious. He was fighting hard in the top three when he brushed the wall, pretty much ending his chance for his elusive first win.

        Things got exciting in the last twenty laps with some nice three-wide racing from the contenders. With eight to go, Greg Biffle was leading, trying to end a 76-race winning drought. Edwards had fought back to third place. With five to go, Denny Hamlin had a tire going down and brushed into the wall, causing Mike Bliss to slam into him, ending both of their days. Hamlin had just raced past Brendan

        Gaughan, who in truth, had backed off to let the charging Hamlin by. As they say, what goes around, comes around.

        Thus, the race was set for a green-white checkered. With ten cars on the lead lap, it was exciting. Edwards passed Jason Leffler whose car sputtered from being low on gas, and he challenged Biffle, but the Biff held on and won, with Edwards second. The two teammates were side by side after the restart, but Edwards got loose and couldn’t quite get the pass done.

        NASCAR - 2009 Sam’s Town 300 was way too long with something like sixty laps of caution. Still, the ending was exciting.
