When it comes to average finishing position on this track, no driver has a better record than Joey Logano and his 8.40 mark. Logano boasts a three-way tie for the most wins here at Las Vegas with 2 and the second-best winning percentage (13.33%).

In addition to everything on this résumé, Logano has also led the third-most total laps on this track with 488.
Even though Logano has the overall edge in average finishing position, Keselowski has actually posted the best average finishing position (5.33) at Las Vegas over any driver's last six respective appearances here. Keselowski also has an edge in total wins (3) with the most and the best winning rate (20.00%) in his 15 career showings on this track. In addition to that, Keselowski boasts the best top-5 finishing rate (46.67%) and a tie for the best top-10 finishing rate (66.67%).
Martin Truex Jr.
Martin Truex Jr. doesn't grade out as well as Keselowski or Logano when it comes to top-5 or top-10 finishing rate at Las Vegas, but his two career wins here leave him tied for the second most and show he clearly has it what it takes to win it all again this Sunday. Beyond that, Truex is the king of consistency here, boasting a field-best and incredible 94.44% top-20 finishing rate – that's 17 top-20 finishes in 18 total appearances on this track. Truex also has the second-most laps led here with 293, which is more than both Keselowski and Logano.
