The race at Las Vegas saw several cautions for debris, which caused the finish to be more about fuel conservation than anything else.

Several different drivers led today's race including Kevin Harvick who seemed like one of the strongest drivers competing at Vegas, but he found himself in the garage with car issues before the race came to an end.

As the race started to come to an end, drivers desperately tried to save fuel. Dale Jr. was on his way to win his second race of the season but with 12 laps to go, Brad Keselowski caught up.

Keselowski couldn't pass Dale Jr. but Keselowski had more fuel to spare to push his car while Dale Jr. was in fuel conservation mode.

The white flag was in the air with Dale Jr. still holding back Keselowski, but fuel would be the key to this race as Dale ran out and started to fade. Keselowski is now locked into the Chase, and also had the first sweep of the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races in his career.

The race at Las Vegas was an average race where the same drivers seemed to be the ones in control. Dale Jr. continues to impress this season, while other drivers like Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch continue to struggle.

Two of the biggest names in NASCAR last year, Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth, have yet to stand out as the NASCAR season continues to move forward.

Will they be able to show why they were so dominate last year as NASCAR heads to Bristol next week?
