Vegas, Baby! Live-Blogging From NASCAR Weekend In Sin City

Who would have bet before the season that Kevin Harvick would be the Sprint Cup Series points leader co ming into Las Vegas?

That's the beauty of the unpredictable nature of racing, and it probably means trying to gamble on NASCAR in Vegas this weekend isn't a very good idea.

Of course, that won't stop people from doing it, which is how those shiny casinos got built. But if you're not heading out to the track, you can still follow all the action on this live blog throughout the weekend.

You can bet (bad pun intended) that we'll update it with driver interviews, practice reports and in-race commentary.

Keep checking back.

  • Friday, noon – First Sprint Cup practice
