The 2021 Spring West Tour of the NASCAR Cup Series will begin Sunday with the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The Cup Series held the first three races of its 21st season at Daytona International Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. As with the Homestead race, the Las Vegas race will be run on a 1.5 mile intermediate track.
The starting lineup for Sunday’s race will be led by Kevin Harvick, who earned pole position for Sunday’s race based on NASCAR’s formula for unranked races. The No. 4 Ford Stewart-Haas Racing driver finished fifth in last weekend’s race, the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and is second in the Cup points standings after three races.
Joining him in the front row will be Hendrick Motorsports’ William Byron, who drove to victory at Homestead, his second career Cup Series victory.
