Sunday’s South Point 400 will mark the 30th NASCAR Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The track debuted on the Cup schedule in 1998 and hosted one race date each spring through 2017 – until 2018 saw the addition of a second date in September. This year will be the first time Las Vegas has hosted a Cup Series race in October.
In its first 29 races, 17 drivers have won at the track. The first victor was Mark Martin and Jeff Burton was the first driver to win multiple times (1999 and 2000).
Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson leads the way with four victories at the track (2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010). Brad Keselowski leads all active drivers with three wins (2014, 2016, September 2018).
