Although we're now three weeks into the 2013 Sprint Cup season, Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway marked the first time that the new Gen-Six car bodies made it to the track in a racing situation. And after complaints in the past two weeks over the quality of racing, things took a turn for the better in Sin City.
For the first time, passes for the lead didn't seem impossible. Kasey Kahne, Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth all managed to spend significant time up front, while hometown favorite Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski kept things interesting as well. In the end, Kenseth brought home his 25th career Sprint Cup victory, his first with Joe Gibbs Racing.
So who were some of this week's other big winners, and which drivers would rather forget about their trip to Vegas?
