Kenseth solid again in Vegas

Matt Kenseth makes it three top tens in a row in Las Vegas
Despite pitting out of sequence with what he thought was a loose wheel, fifth-place finisher Matt Kenseth posted his third top ten of the season in Las Vegas.

It marked Kenseth's his first top five with crew chief Todd Parrott, who took over from Drew Blickensderfer after the Daytona 500.

“It feels like we're on the right track, but me pitting off-sequence there probably got us an adjustment or two behind, because we were more worried about getting back on the lead lap — at least I was — than saving enough gas to get our (pit) windows closer together,” Kenseth said.

“We probably didn't adjust on it quite the way we needed to and didn't have it exactly the way I wanted at the end, but overall it was a great day for us.”
