Austin Hill, Tyler Reddick and Martin Truex, Jr. all hit the jackpot at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend. Austin Hill rolled to a two-second victory in Friday’s NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series’ World of Westgate 200. On Saturday, Tyler Reddick managed to fuel to the win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Rhino Pro Truck Outfitters 300. Martin Truex, Jr. showed the field in Sunday evening’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series South Point 400 that he wasn’t finished winning yet.
Hattori Racing Enterprises driver Austin Hill won his third and most important victory to date of the 2019 season in Friday night’s NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series World of Westgate 200. Hill’s Number 16 passed Ross Chastain’s Number 45 with 12 laps remaining and never looked back, rolling to an impressive 2.116-second victory over Chastain, who won both Stage 1 and 2. Christian Eckes, driving the Number 51 sat on the Pole and finished third.
Tyler Reddick and his Richard Childress Racing team rolled the dice late in Saturday night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Rhino Pro Truck Outfitters 300, making the decision to pit late and play the fuel mileage game for the win. The gamble paid off and Reddick was able to use just enough fuel to stay ahead of Christopher Bell for the race win. Lap 71 saw Reddick sitting in fifth place, which was enough to give him the regular season title. Bell took second and won both stages. Bell’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Brandon Jones came in third.
Martin Truex, Jr. screamed “Welcome back!” to his team after winning Sunday evening’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup South Point 400. It had been three months since Truex had last visited Victory Lane and the win felt good. Truex beat second place finisher Kevin Harvick in the Stewart-Haas Racing Number 4 by more than four seconds to nab his series-leading fifth win of the year. Reigning Champ Joey Logano won Stage 1 with Truex giving a hint at the hand he held by winning Stage 2. Brad Keselowski took the Penske Racing Number 2 to a third place finish.
