  • McCall and the No. 1 team led 29 laps in the fall race two years ago, one of his three Cup wins overall. Last fall they ran eighth, and this spring he finished 24th with the No. 6 team.
  • In the last six races in Vegas, McCall has led his team and driver to three top-10 qualifying efforts, including a career-best fifth with Kurt Busch in 2019.

 

QUOTE WORTHY
Keselowski on racing at Las Vegas:
“Vegas has been a really good track to me over the years and a place I feel pretty comfortable and confident at. We’ve come a long way since the spring race with still work to be done, but I’m excited to see our improvements since the first race and see what we can do in the King’s Hawaiian Ford.”

Last Time Out
Keselowski finished 14th last weekend on the ROVAL at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

 

On the Car

King’s Hawaiian returns for its third race with the No. 6 team. Known for its famous soft and fluffy dinner rolls, King’s Hawaiian has launched its Million Dollar Showdown, a sweepstakes that will reward a lucky fan with a cash prize of $1,000,000 and a trip to the Super Bowl in 2023. Keselowski’s machine this weekend will highlight the campaign with a slightly different design than past races. Visit kingshawaiianshowdown.com for full rules and to enter.
