2012 Kobalt Tools 400 Winner
Tony Stewart wins 2012 Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Stewart made a bold move to take the lead on a late restart and held off Jimmie Johnson for a redemptive NASCAR victory. He pulled away from Johnson on three more restarts over the final 17 laps for his first win on the tri-oval in the desert.
2011 Kobalt Tools 400 Winner
Carl Edwards capitalised on a pitstop error from Tony Stewart‘s team to win the 2011 Kobalt Tools 400, the third race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Stewart clearly had the fastest car, leading 169 laps of the race but leaving the pits dragging an air gun behind him was to be his undoing as he was given a stop and go penalty and ordered to the tail end of the field. For the final twenty-five laps Stewart fought his way forward spending a long time fighting with Juan Pablo Montoya for second place before passing beneath the Colombian. Stewart tried to close down Edwards but could never get close enough and was left to settle for second and rue that poor pitstop.
2010 Las Vegas 400 Winner
Jimmie Johnson wins 2010 Las Vegas 400. Johnson changed four tires and used that extra traction to pass Gordon and lead the final 18 laps. Last NASCAR season, Johnson became the first driver to win four consecutive championships. Johnson also became the first driver in NASCAR history to win 15 times on a 11/2-mile track. Car owner Rick Hendrick is still amazed about how well Johnson and Knaus take advantage of their opportunities, even against their own teammates.

the checkered flag during the Shelby 427 at Las Vegas
Motor Speedway. It was his first win in Las Vegas, his
hometown, in six Sprint Cup starts.
