Kobalt 400The Sprint Cup circuit makes it was out to Las Vegas for a couple of races on tap this Saturday and Sunday. It was a great week in Phoenix to close out February with two of the sport’s biggest names winning. Kyle Busch captured the Nationwide event despite weather issues. Then the next day it was Kevin Harvick who raced his way to victory and captured the checkered flag.

Busch will get the opportunity to win a second-straight Nationwide race Saturday night. He leads the way on the list of contenders to win the Boyd Gaming 300 from Las Vegas Motor Speedway. There are several other notable drivers in this field, including 2014 Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. But Earnhardt is behind drivers like Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Matt Kenseth. Busch is on top at 7/4 and well in front of the rest of the field despite the fact he hasn’t won this race.

Busch has won the Kobalt 400, which is the Sprint Cup race on Sunday. He won it back in 2009. Since then, it’s been Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, and Matt Kenseth. In other words, you’ve got to be among the best of the best to have a shot.

Johnson is on top of the betting lines to win the 2014 Kobalt 400, just edging out Busch and Kenseth. Johnson is going off at 11/2 on the payout.

Busch and Kenseth have been set with equal 15/2 odds. Earnhardt sits at 17/2, with Keselowski at 9/1.

Johnson has the most wins all time in this race with four, though Kenseth is just one behind with three. There is no doubt that Johnson enjoys competing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He won each of the races from 2005-07, before winning his last in 2010. It’s been three years since Johnson had a victory here, but oddsmakers believe that might come to an end by the conclusion of Sunday.

NASCAR would certainly like a week that is clean and clear of weather-related issues. After opening up the season with big difficulties at Daytona, that was compounded last week with the weather system that stormed through the west coast and hit Phoenix. As of now, the forecast looks like things should go off without a hitch.

For those wondering if this race used to have a different ring to it, the ‘Tools’ in the former title from 2011-13 has been dropped. Formerly the Kobalt Tools 400, ‘Tools’ is no longer used.
