NASCAR Gets Back on Track

After taking a week off, NASCAR drivers were back in action at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, Dale Jr. might as well have still been on vacation. Junior finished in 35th place. That disappointing showing dropped Dale to 7th in the championship standings. Meanwhile, defending champion, Matt Kenseth, won the race and moved into first in the championship standings. But it was possibly the rookie Kasey Kahne who had the biggest week of all. The 23 year-old drove his Dodge to a second place finish. That allowed him to move up 13 places in the standings to 8th place.
