There was no shortage of feedback following the Pennzoil 400 on Sunday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.This was the first race with the complete version of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

It's the second week in a row Team Penske picked up a victory, after Keselowski won at Atlanta last week.

NASCAR debuted the entirety of its new rules package created to foster tighter racing and more passing.

Nine different drivers shared the lead with Harvick up front the longest (88). 1 time for 5 laps; Austin Dillon 1 time for 2 laps.

After Harvick pitted, Logano inherited the lead until he did the same on lap 50, leading to Daniel Suárez enjoying time in first. He had an unscheduled pit stop on Lap 14 for a loose wheel that sent him a lap down. From there, he cruised to an easy Stage 1 victory.

Kurt Busch parlayed a divergent pit strategy into a fifth-place run.

Considering what the package was expected to feature, the stage raised skepticism from fans and industry members. "We were able to put our first set back on with a fresh wheel so we didn't have any more issues there". It seemed to come down to what the lapped cars were going to do. McLeod went to the garage for a vibration before later returning to the track. Then two laps later, Logano made the pass on Keselowski for the lead. "What a great day for Team Penske and Ford".

Kurt Busch led 23 laps on Sunday at his home track of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but it was the fashion in which he accomplished the fete that drew the most attention. But the braking wasn't enough, and Busch was flagged for speeding in Sector 1. "Now we've got two top fives to year, but we know we've got some more work to do". Meanwhile, Logano and his teammate Brad Keselowski were battling for the lead as we got down to the end of the final 40 laps. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Aric Almirola, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott and Daytona 500 victor Denny Hamlin completed the top 10.

Pole victor Kevin Harvick led a race-high 88 laps to finish fourth and Kurt Busch completed the Top 5.

Hertz driver William Byron led 21 laps in his Rick Hendrick entry.

Kevin Harvick was the fourth-place driver. Keselowski 240-243;J. Logano 244-267.

Logan held off Harvick to win the 80-lap second stage. Logano 150-163;K. Busch 164-168;J. Joey Logano, aka "Sliced Bread" will try to regain his form from his early days when he became the youngest driver to win the Nationwide Series and the second-youngest to win the Dayton 500.

However, Logano was the victor of the 2nd stage and took over the lead 7 different times in the race.
