Last weekend the Sprint Cup drivers were at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It was not a very exciting race because there were no wrecks in the race, but drivers were blowing their engines up. Matt Kenseth won the race on his birthday.

Many drivers did not finish the race because they had a vibration in the car, blew their engines or blew their transmissions during the race. There weren’t a lot of cautions in the race.  Kenseth held off Jimmie Johnson on the green white checker finish. Johnson fell back to sixth place and Kenseth won the race on his birthday.

This weekend the drivers will be at Bristol Motor Speedway the first short track of the season. Bristol is known for a lot of wrecks and real cool racing. The race is on Fox at one p.m.
