Kyle Busch won Saturday's Xfinity Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in overtime, keeping his attempt at a weekend sweep alive.

When the second green-flag cycle of stops completed late in the second stage, Logano was up front and Busch was off the lead lap after his speeding penalty.

Kurt Busch did not pit between stages to take over the top slot alongside Logano, who won the race off pit road.

The win was the first for Logano this year.

Through majority of the race, Busch understood that his No. 1 team from Chip Ganassi Racing had their work cut out for them.

Busch's win comes the day after his victory in the Truck Series race. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver led 13 laps and received 43 points, as well, like Logano. After just ten laps, Joey Gase reported losing power in his #66 MBM Motorsports vehicle, forcing the team to inspect; upon review, the crew elected to retire to avoid engine damage. "Coming to pit road there, we tried a different brake package for us this weekend, and trying to make up time, and in order to get a bigger jump on the guys behind me coming to pit road there, just ruined it for us". The favorites - Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch - are no strangers to this race but have plenty of others to contend with.

Logano moved barely in front of pole-sitter and Stage One leader Kevin Harvick heading into the finish after an entertaining second stage.

However, Logano was the victor of the 2nd stage and took over the lead 7 different times in the race.

Penske also wasn't anxious when his two drivers were inches apart on that final lap: "We've really told them to take care of each other, and the last 10 laps, the best man wins".

"I've got to get it to where its balanced evenly". When we get some baseline stuff here, we can start working on the details and not scrambling so much. During one pit stop, the team made one adjustment that made the auto really tight in practice. When we're in clean air, the vehicle is like this (pointing downward) and When we're in dirty air, the auto is like that (pointing upward).

"We got really tight in traffic, and our pit strategist was saying that, if we stayed long in the second stage, then we could stay out", Busch said.

"It played out where we got clean air and it completely changed the complexion of the vehicle".

"It gave us a lot to learn from today, and I'm really proud of everybody to get a top five". He finished 25th in the Daytona 500 but followed it up with consecutive top-fives.
