The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs make a stop in Sin City this weekend.

The South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has tended to excite in recent years with some wild events. Brad Keselowski’s dramatic last-lap comeback to beat Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2014 is one of the top examples. The site has become a West Coast jewel in the series.

This year’s edition of the fall Vegas race looks as exciting as ever. The 2022 playoffs have been a string of unpredictable performances, from non-playoff drivers winning multiple races to Christopher Bell sealing postseason advancement in the most dramatic fashion with a last-gasp win.
