The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Las Vegas this weekend for the Kobalt Tools 400. Sunday's race will be the third of the early Cup Series races, but it's already been kind to Hendrick Motorsports. This is your full schedule for the weekend, from qualifying all the way to the big race.
Hendrick holds three spots in the top ten, including Jimmy Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr., who are sitting in first and second, respectively. Since arriving on the team in 2007, the 88 car has had middling success in what was supposed to be a dream match. While it's taken some time for Earnhardt Jr. and Hendrick Motorsports to gel, it finally appears that he has the team around him to succeed. Finishing second in Daytona, and fifth in Phoenix -- Earnhardt is looking to keep the hot start alive.
Meanwhile, in the Nationwide Series, Saturday night should help to separate the pack. Sam Hornish Jr. and Justin Allgaier are tied at 79 points with both drivers holding one top-ten and one top-five finish.
