Nationwide - Las Vegas - Race results

Reigning series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. proved too strong for veteran Mark Martin to handle in the latter stages of the Sam's Town 300 at Las Vegas on Saturday.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. displayed a mighty pace in the final quarter of the Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon, and ensured that second-placed Mark Martin never had an opportunity to challenge for the race win.

It's Stenhouse's third victory in 76 NASCAR Nationwide Series races, his most recent previous visit to victory lane being at Iowa Speedway last August. The win boosts Stenhouse up two spots to third place in the championship standings. Elliott Sadler finished the race in third place and stays on top of the points standings, 15pts clear of Austin Dillon and 17pts ahead of Stenhouse.

Earlier in the day, Sadler had won his 12th Nationwide career pole position for the race with a lap of 29.774s (181.366mph) on the 1.5-mile high-banked oval, putting him 0.053s ahead of Kasey Kahne who joined him on the front row after being the only other driver in the field to top 181mph in the qualifying session.
