NASCARGoesWest kicks off this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS). The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will travel to Las Vegas, Phoenix and Fontana, Calif., as part of the sport’s annual west coast swing. The three-week stretch has become a premier part of the NASCAR season. Last year, the sanctioning body added a second trip to LVMS onto the schedule in September for the west coast fans to have an opportunity to experience an additional race.
The No. 13 GEICO Camaro ZL1 team visited LVMS in January to test NASCAR’s new rules package. Teams had an opportunity to learn more about the new package this past weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, but this trip to Las Vegas will be the first time that the field will compete with the new aero ducts. Dillon had a fast Chevrolet in Atlanta, showing speed in practice and running lap times close to the leaders at the end of the 500-mile race. The team has similar expectations for this weekend as they continue to perfect this package.
