The third stop on the Nationwide tour takes the teams to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the Sam’s Town 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Who will win the race scheduled for Saturday March 9 at 1:15 p.m. Pacific Time and broadcast on ESPN2? It’s not as easy as you might think in choosing the favorites.
The fact is there isn’t a clear-cut choice. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won this event last year but he’s concentrating on his new ride as a rookie in Sprint Cup. In fact, there are only three full-time Cup drivers entered in the race and obviously they’re going to be tough to beat. Still, there are several Nationwide regulars and some of them are former full-time Cup drivers out to prove they can compete with the best. Here’s a look at the top five plus one long shot at the end.
