Wild finish at NASCAR'S Kobalt 400

The House intelligence committee is asking the Trump administration for evidence that the phones at Trump Tower were tapped during the campaign

Larson, Chase Elliott, Logano, Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, Ryan Blaney, Jamie McMurray, Matt Kenseth, and Clint Bowyer rounded out the rest of Sunday's top-1o finishers.

The Kobalt 400 was really a two-man race right from the start.

BLUE OVAL BRIGADE: Speaking of SHR, if there was any question as to whether their shift to Ford was going to hinder their performance, I think we already have our answer.

Keselowski dominated the first stage of the race after starting on the pole, but at the end of the stage, Truex was the front-runner. I feel good about how we've run but I just want to get some strong finishes to match.

Martin Truex Jr. hit the Las Vegas jackpot as Brad Keselowski rolled snake eyes. As the cars entered the final turn Logano slid high and clipped Busch's fender.

"It was a gift", Truex said in Victory Lane. It would be hard to argue that point after this race. His crew chief Todd Gordon said, "I kind of thought that a few more cars would choose not to pit behind us and give us a buffer but that was not the case".

The first stage of Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is set for an exciting ending. "We'll get them next week in Phoenix". "It's a dream come true driving these cars for these guys and hopefully we can keep this momentum going".

"There wasn't much talking, Kyle was just swinging". Kyle Larson was able to cleanly get by Keselowski, but the two behind him couldn't. "It wouldn't turn and I lost brakes, so that's a pretty good indicator, but that's the way it goes".

"(The tire) started vibrating four or five laps before it blew", Harvick told FOX Sports. "Obviously, it didn't make it". The fight ended with Busch on the ground in a bear lock with one of Logano's crew.

With eight laps remaining in the second stage, the eldest driver of the field (Derrike Cope) lost control of his No. 55 Chevrolet which brought out the fourth caution of the day. Kasey Kahne and Furniture Row Racing teammates Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones were docked 15 minutes of practice time on Saturday because of issues during pre-qualifying inspection on Friday.

Race victor, Martin Truex Jr., is fourth, five points back and Joey Logano rounds out the top-five, 13 points back from the lead.
