Early JACKpot
Roush Fenway hit the Vegas jackpot right off the bat, winning the inaugural Cup event at Las Vegas in 1998. Mark Martin led 82 laps in the victory that served as a sweeping day for Roush Fenway.

Inaugural Sweep
Roush Fenway placed all five of its Cup entries inside the top 10 of that inaugural Las Vegas Cup race in 1998, including three inside the top five, four inside the top six, one in the winners circle and the runner up (6 – 1st, 99 – 2nd, 26 – 4th, 16 – 6th and 97 – 10th).

Continued Success
Roush Fenway Racing won the first three Cup races at LVMS from ‘98-’00, with Jeff Burton winning back-to-back events in ’99 and ’00. Roush Fenway also took three of the first nine Nationwide events at LVMS.

Victory Lane at Vegas
In addition to the first three Sprint Cup races at LVMS, Roush Fenway again found the winners’ circle in 2003 and 2004 at the 1.5-mile track with Matt Kenseth. Carl Edwards took the checkered flag at the 2008 and 2011 events to give Roush Fenway seven wins at Las Vegas with four different drivers. Roush Fenway Racing has won just under half of the Sprint Cup events at LVMS.

Back to Back at Vegas
Roush Fenway has won back-to-back Cup races at LVMS on two separate occasions in ’99-’00 and ’03-04’ and once in the Nationwide Series in ‘99 and ‘00. They will look to repeat the feat again this season in the NNS, with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. having won there a year ago.

Breaking it Down
Roush Fenway has posted 68 Cup starts at LVMS, finishing inside the top 10 53 percent of the time. In fact, Roush Fenway has placed a car inside the top 10 of the event in each of its 15 years on the circuit. Roush Fenway has placed multiple cars inside the top 10 in all but two of the 15 races at LVMS and the organization has put a car inside the top five in 10 of 15 events there.

Nationwide Effort
Roush Fenway Racing has won six times in the Nationwide Series at LVMS, most recently last season with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Roush Fenway Nationwide cars have finished inside the top 10 in an impressive 75 percent (30) of their 40 starts in the series and inside the top five almost 50 percent of the time (18). Both Trevor Bayne and Stenhouse finished top four in Vegas in the NNS last season.

Across the Board at Vegas
All in all, Roush Fenway Racing has tallied 15 total NASCAR wins, while turning 27,677 laps in NASCAR action at LVMS for 41,515 miles, while leading over 2,500 laps at the track in NASCAR’s top three divisions. At the same time the organization has finished inside the top 10 in 57 percent of its 135 NASCAR starts at LVMS.
