NASCAR Xfinity Series
Las Vegas, Nevada: Kyle Busch had to make do with third place behind the Penske pair in the Cup race, but he made up for it elsewhere during the Vegas weekend. He won the Xfinity race after recovering from a lap down due to sustaining a loose wheel; a strategic gamble helped him back to the sharp end and he triumphed after two overtime periods.
Las Vegas, Nevada: The Xfinity win made it two wins from three for Kyle Busch in his hometown as he also won the truck race. For the second time in a week in that series he dominated – taking both preliminary stages before claiming victory after leading 111 of the 134 laps.
Adelaide, South Australia: Reigning Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin claimed two wins from two at Adelaide, and with it took another triumph for a brand new Ford Mustang. His race one victory, an effective lights-to-flag win, was the first for a Mustang in the series in 46 years and on its debut; then for good measure he won race two comfortably as well.
