Matt Kenseth  Las Vegas victory - photo Todd Warshaw - Getty ImagesNASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesMatt Kenseth’s car was superb for the third time in three races this season. This time, the No. 20 team saw it pay off in the final standings.

Kenseth piloted his Dollar General Toyota to a win Sunday in the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway — on his 41st birthday, no less — holding off a hard-charging Kasey Kahne in a final 30-lap duel. The key was a late pit stop during caution in which Kenseth took fuel only, allowing him jump into first place coming out of pit road while most of the other leaders took two tires.
